Sounds like total rubbish. Whoever said that is a complete BSer. Besides,
you'd need to add freaking quarts of oil.
I think the best thing is to take it to a dealer. May be easy to say,
perhaps you don't have one near.
I also have a 96 SL2, low mileage, 104,000 km. I think here the ATF and
coolant are done at the 100,000 km mark. In your case I'm not sure if that's
early or late. Maybe more unnecessary maintenance.
