Dr Diesel or Gilly:
Thanks for letting me know about this MB bulletin. I went back and reviewed the work orders the dealer generated for the past service visits concerning the ABC "slumping" problem. Nothing was mentioned about draining the Pentosin, or the "rodeo" program. Thus, I am not sure if the local dealer knows about this bulletin.
I like to point out this bulletin to my dealer. So, please let me know reference number for it.
