Question about 1994 Mercedes-Benz C-Class
Problem - First time of starting the car daily:
The car is parked on a downward sloping incline and is thus reversed
onto the road. On starting the engine fires up immediately and is fine.
On selecting the reverse gear the engine stalls or cuts out. This
happens several times before reverse can be successfully selected,
the car is then fine for the rest of the day and evening.
Selecting reverse successfully is more difficult the colder it is
(+7.5°C or less).
Also, since this problem started the gear change can sometimes be
felt when previously the gear changing was very smooth
The car spent an initial morning with an MB specialist (who has MB
diagnostic facilities), no fault could be found and no error codes
logged. It was however thought that the symptoms were indicative
that an Air Mass Meter change would probably fix it – but it didn’t.
The MB specialist needed the car when cold - so was booked in
for three days, thus covering two mornings of very cold starts of
around +2.5°C to 0°C. Again no faults could be found or error codes
Any ideas of a fix or who/where it can be sorted would be gratefully
Have you checked the transmission fluid if it is low then the transmission will not have enough pressure on your incline, this could also explain your shift feel changing, it could be time for a transmission service, approx €150.00 inc filter and fluid change with a fluid changer not just by draining the pan. wher are you we may know someone in your area.
