IMHO, TGT's service intervals more accurately represent real world service needs. 20,0000-mile OCI's, just as believable as a "Sealed for Life" transmission.

I decided to change the fluid, filter, conductor plate, drained the torque converter and it is operating correctly so far. I just did this today so hopefully I fixed the problem.

My impression is that a 60,000 mile service interval is about right, sooner if driving heavy.

MB originally considered the fluid good for life (which, by definition, it would be! ) so if the old fluid was exceptionally dirty you may have just performed the first service, and should be prepared for some glitches in the near term. The new fluid may loosen debris, potentially clogging internal oil passages (kinda the ATF equivalent of a blood clot).

I’d take a look at the fluid in 10,000 miles or so and consider performing a fluid-only drain and fill at that time (the filter is sized for life, so there’s no need to drop the pan).
