AF3 onepx.gif DEXRON®-III Automatic Transmission Fluid
BMW: Power steering use AF3; Models with combined power steering,
hydraulic brake booster, self-leveling suspension system use SLF
Mercedes-Benz: Use only manufacturer approved fluid

Look on the back of the bottle of fluid you are looking to buy, if it does not say is is approved by MB, don't use it.

Not adjustable. This is electronic controlled. If your idle is high, there is a failure along the line.

How to adjust idlefor 1992 mercedes benz 190 e 2.6

do you want to adjust the idle up or down? If your car has too high of an idle, you probably have a vacuum leak. buy a can of starting fluid. Start the car and lightly start spraying starter fluid all over the intake. You will hear the engine change RPMs. When it does, that is where you have a leak. If you want to idle your car up, you will need to adjust your throttle plate. Where your throttle hand moves when you rev your engine, it has a little screw that you can adjust to make the throttle arm stop sooner, allowing more airflow into the engine.

You have to check ur idle speed controller, that is located at the back of battery protected by a plstic shield, remove the shield and remove a small controller located next to the computer compartment and check the fuse, the problem wd b solved by replacing the fuse otherwise u will have to replace the idle speed controller, if this will not fix the problem, ur computer has to be reset by company, hope this will fix the problem
