Question about 1998 Mercedes-Benz E-Class

1 Answer

E200k wont change up or down and tiptronic not working.

I have a E200k on a 51 plate...and have recently had problems with the gears, sometimes when I start the car, put into Drive, it clunks into the gear after which when i pull off, it refuses to change gears...it was easilt solved by stopping, switching the car off and re-starting, after which the problem seemed to go....I now have a permanent problem, as the gears wont change and the tiptronic wont work either...any idea's on what it might be...
thanks

First of all it's normal for a car to change down a gear or two when slowing down, and if it doesn't go back into gear then you will need to check the transmission fluid to see if its needs topping up.

Being it is a manual transmission and the engine was removed, it is likely the clutch and pressure plate not releasing completely at high rpms.
