C CLASS-Beware if the Gearbox is leaking!!
Last few days after driving back from outstation n stop at the rest place,I saw smoke came from the bottom of the car. The smoke started near the gearbox undernearth the car. Hwr driving the car to my house there was no smoke but there was burnig smell like hot metal being showered with water.

When i brought the car to the mech he said how lucky i was!!.According to him C class is prone to fire due to the gb leaking for the following resons:

1. C class generally has a textile fibre product near the gb. This firbre can catch fire easily. He showed me the fibre after raising the car.
2. The ATF oil is very thin n can create fire easily.

If his statement is correct, I hope members can take precaution....by checking your ATF oil regularly

Welcome back YUS !



Yes, you deserve a nice flower after being away.. if I'm not mistaken since May last year...

Is this issues applicable to both C-Class, W202 and W201?

Re: C CLASS-Beware if the Gearbox is leaking!!
bro yus,

the smoke is the result of the leaking atf getting
into contact with the exhaust pipe which runs along quite
close to the g/box.in fact one of d the exhaust mounting
bracket is attached to the g/box hence the leaked atf
can drip to the exhaust pipe through this bracket.

it can also be leaking lubricant/engine oil through the
worn gasket near the exhaust manifold, n is quite common
on engines that are not regularly serviced/cleaned.

on w203 the oil leak from the magnetic solenoid/cam
sensor can also dripped to the exhaust manifold n create
white smoke but not too glaring/noticeable.

hope i`m right.learned it through personal observation
when i`m in the w/shop n by asking the technicians.

askum.

My jalopy is W202 - C180.

yup, bro.

manuals seldom leaks as all the gears are running in the
oils.the pressure are not that high to cause the oils
to sip tru the seals n moreover the oil is thicker as
compared to atf.bear in mind atf runs at a higher temp
compared to manual oils.

always change the oil seals when you change the clutch plates
regardless whether it leaks or not for peace of mind.

askum.

Tnx Bro.
I guess as much.

Will certainly replace oil seals when clutch plates need to be changed.
