2002 SL55 AMG transsmision

Hi does anyone know how far in does the dipstick for checking the transmission oil level go in from the top of the filler tube as mine sticks but with a bit of force it goes in more if some one could measure one it would be a big help.

All the way mate !

Make sure the engine & trans are hot, & check on level ground, with the engine running.

Use a white paper cloth to wipe the stick, then re-dip it to check the level, & the fluid should be a strawberry red color, & have a sweet smell.

As long as the fluid is within the high & low marks, leave it alone.

A 1/2 litre of fluid will likely lift the level from low to full, but it takes a long while to drain down the dip-stick-tube, so false readings will happen.

Auto-fluid does evaporate a little over time, so you may not have a leak to look for if low.

Rastus got you covered Paul. Any dipstick usually has a tighter last half inch, always seems so anyway!
