    Default Oil pan back in place

    After cleaning and refitting the oil pan, they poured 4 liters of ATF and let it circulate with engine start and selecting all gears one by one, ALso they made a wire connector to short the designated connectors on OBD port to get ATF temperature light. I was scared and was concentrating hard to make sure they connect the right points, so was not able to take pictures


    Mark X servicing -176945 Mark X servicing -176946 Mark X servicing -176947

    That went well, and afterwards they drained that oil and put in new ATF, around 4 liters. Level was checked again after some idling and gear changes. It was fine and JOB was declared DONE

    you did put in a new filter right? and how come the pan has no magnets in it. It should have atleast one. Helps a lot.

    about draining everything - you can use the oil cooler lines to flush the transmission completely. thats why I love the mercedes design - they have a drain on their torque convertor - open it up and you have more fluid in it than you had drained from the pan.
