2010 c350 4matic
I've posted this on another thread but I'll post it here just in case, my car is a 2010 c350 with 53000 km. The tranny fluid was never changed. The car was mainly used for short trips. I contacted a few mechanics and they said since it was not serviced at 40k/4years, I should not touch it. It might cause more damage than good.
Any thoughts on this?

I have not been on this forum for ages. I work as a parts adviser at a Mercedes dealership here in California. Transmission fluid for 1995-2010 should use the red. 2011 you will have to check with your VIN as already stated if it has the code A89 because some still uses the red. Any 2012 and newer should use the blue fluid.

xsever I checked your vin, You do have the code A89. I do not know if the vindecoderz is accurate. I cropped a pic from the EPC that I use here at work.

I contacted the dealer where the car was bought and they said I needed the red fluid 236.14. I'm just wondering now if flushing the fluid would be more beneficiary or bad for my transmission since its been sitting there for 9 years with only 53k km.

Thank you so much for confirming my conclusions. Much appreciated. I guess the online VIN decoders are not as accurate as having access to the MB systems.
Thanks again.

2008 c350 sport
I recently rebuilt my transmission on my 2008 c350 sport (722.9)7G Tronic trans.

what was supposed to be a conductor plate repair on my vehicle turned into a rebuilt transmission repair after I went to AAMCO in LAKE FOREST CA they told me I needed to rebuilt my transmission when my OBD2 scanner was telling me to change the TRANSMISSION CONTROL MODULE (which was the conductor plate) they ripped my transmission apart to let me know since they did so I needed to get new seals and new fluid. Long story short I have the NEW BLUE FLUID IN MY TRANSMISSION. And it has been running fine since the repair($3700) “rebuilt my transmission” I took it to a place called BEACH BENZ IN Huntington Beach. They did a great job and I’m really happy with the work. But I do notice some later shifting then before the repair. I used to see my car shift exactly at number 2 and now it has to go between the 2 and the 3 which causes the vehicle to perform later shifts and slower acceleration. Do you think it’s because of the blue fluid? Or is it because I have a 11 year old car?
