For your transmission issues, changing the ATF + filter would be a good first step. Changing just the fluid isn't going to be enough. If you can take it to a shop that has more advanced diagnostic equipment (e.g., someone with a Xentry kit) they should be able to read the stored codes in your transmission computer & live data to see if anything's off.
For your SBC issues - are you getting error/warning codes on your dash? You really should go to a shop that can read the exact codes. Some codes may
indicate that the unit could
be repaired. There's an electric motor that builds up pressure in the system, and the carbon brushes in the motor can wear out. Worn brushes (as long as the rest of the motor are fine) can be replaced. Of course, if the fault relates to an internal sensor, or the accumulator has failed, etc. then you'll need to get a replacement. It's a real bummer that Mercedes didn't extend the warranty for SBC in markets other than the US (the US got a 25-year warranty just for SBC)...
Yeah i did a diagnostics, there was an erorr with the gearbox, which me and my foreman established that it was cheaper to buy a refurb one.
For the SBC, yeah on the dash i do have both the "Reduced Braking" and recently i have been losing all braking and power during first start (almost died today when i had no braking at a T junction). Fun times.
Can confirm everytime scanned (can't remember the code) but practically says that the unit needs to be replaced. not the accumulator. I did hear one guy in Ampang that could refurb the SBC, will ask in future.
Also found a seller on carousell who wanted 6k just for a new unit.
Just finished resetting the code with Xentry as my neighbor has a copy on his laptop.
