MB says the transmission is sealed for life, not 100K miles. If it is shifting good and not leaking, I would leave it alone. Just because the fluid looks black does NOT mean it is dirty. Gilly
Thanks for the clarification. The MB dealer tech told me the fluid was good for 100k miles at most. But then, they had to dive into my trans 3 times in 3 months before they finally got it working properly. Since you have been right on so many other things over the years, I will go by your advice and leave mine alone (unless it starts slipping or leaking again ).
