Recently I did a fluid change on my c200. I did it in my garage, on level ground, and no ramps. Drained the diff and all was good with no metal chunks etc.
My issue was that I only got about 1.5 quarts of fluid back in. I believe it called for a hair over 2 quarts. The fluid poured out the fill hole so I know it was full at the time.
So what gives?
Has anyone else noticed the c200 doesn't take as much fluid, or do I need to recheck the level soon to see if maybe there were some large air bubbles or something?

I haven't noticed any leaks or weird actions in the back end, and all feels good. I know that's not what I need to think, but it's been bothering me for a while now wondering what's going on.

I found a copy of the FSM online, and here's what I gathered for the fluid requirements:

1 Quart Front Gear Oil (GL-5 Spec 80w-90 Synthetic)

2 Quart Rear Gear Oil For C200 Differential (GL-5 Spec 70w-90 Synthetic) )


FSM says, "C200 1.6 liters, or 3 3/8 pt (US measuerment), or 2 7/8 pt (imperial)"

at 1.5 qts, only 6 ounces shy of bone dry fill - usually few ounces left in diff after drain.

If 'praying on your mind', open fill plug and try to add little more.

If the fluid is coming out of the fill hole, it is fine.
