Mercedes-Benz S 550 Automatic vs Manual Transmission

Automatic and manual transmission will constantly require clear fluids. Automatic transmission fluids are frequently thinner and are constantly red or green in color. Manual transmission fluid or gear oil is thicker due to additives and other compounds fundamental to lubricate the gearbox and other components. Manual transmissions have a higher friction environment due to the way gears are changed, thus the lubricant is clear.

Not only are the fluids diverse between manual and automatic transmissions but the level of heat the fluids experience is highly diverse. Automatic transmissions generate a lot more heat and thus the fluid in your transmission must be changed more continuously. If you don't change your Mercedes-Benz S 550 transmission fluid, your transmission will have broken metal shavings and diverse corrosive material spread throughout the vital parts of your Mercedes-Benz S 550. You should continuously check the fluid levels between your fluid and transmission flush service intervals. In several cases, manual transmissions don't come equipped with a dipstick to check your fluid levels, so it can be extremely difficult to do. Call or visit Plaza Motor Company for more information if your transmission doesn't contain a dipstick.
