I have a 91' 190e 2.3 with only 65k miles. When I bought the car it had been sitting for over a year, but it had all dealer serv. records before that. The car ran great but would not go to overdrive. I took it to my mech. who added a mystery fluid to the trans. case and it seemed to fix the problem. About a week ago I was going 80mph down the interstate with the air on in 100degree weather and the car was running cool. All of a suddenly smoke started coming out the back of the car. I pulled over and fluid was dripping on the exhaust. I was close to home so I went backroads home at a slow pace and have not had anymore leakage or smoke since. I have not had the car back on the hiway since but it shifts and drives fine in town except for the painfully slow acceleration from a dead stop. I hear that is because all merc's start in second gear from a start. The mechanics I have talked to say the trans is bad. I dont buy it! help! Any suggestions would be gratefull. joe

If you overfill the trans in this model by any amount, it will puke the fluid out all over the exhaust at high speeds. It will not do this around town, but only at high speeds sustained. Also the correct fluid hieght on the stick is 10mm below the bottom line when cold at idle.
