Question about Mercedes-Benz Cars & Trucks

Open Question

I just purchased a 98 Mercedes c180, petrol gas. Drove fine, shifted fine. Suddenly when I come to a stop, or slow down, shift into 1st gear and try to take off again, the car will not pick up speed, the rpm needle will go up but the car will barely crawl. I generally can't get the car going over 10kph, then it will sputter and die. If i restart the car it will take off from 1st gear ok, but then the same errors occur. Also, when I first start the car and give it gas, it sounds as if the engine revs up like it should! Mercedes hooked it up to diagnostic and can't find anything. They initially thought it was a bad clutch but they checked and appears fine. Also, mechanic drove it and no problem, however when it happens it makes it quite unsafe to drive! Any suggestions? shifts fine, no problems going into gear, stays in gear (or so it seems)

SOURCE: 1994 Toyota Camry Won't start.

you should check 3 things. AIr, Fuel, and "spark"
your cars could have many problems. Ignition module, fuel injectors, Mass Airflow Sensor.
You should check into all of these 3 things.
a crank-no start could be many things.
it could even be a cam positions sensors resistance going up when the engine heats up. Cracnk- no start means testing. n like i said
The motor is getting Air, There is Fuel being put into the cylinders, and the Spark plugs are firing.

Does it also hold first gear longer that it should and then shift right from 1st to 3rd? It sounds like you broke the sun shell in the transmission. The trans will need to replaced or rebuilt.

Whenever I put the Audi A4 in reverse it shifts fine but when i put in in drive it shifts real hard and when I am slowing down at times it downshifts like something hit me.Where do I add trans fluid?


down the dipstick tube!!!(really)DO NOT OVERFILL...
Your audi is fitted with a fuzzy logic gearbox, it will change according to your driving style.TRY THIS,put into 1st and without touching gas pedal, let the car accelerate to top gear,stop Then using onle 1/3rd gas pedal do it again.then using 2/3rds do it again.then only using the minimum pedal req accelerate to max legal limit.(try not to use brake pedal,let the car slow down itself,until you have to)then drive as normal, it will feel like a different car.

It sounds like your input clutch seals are rolling. Is the check engine light on. It could also be the pressure control solenoid could be causing the problem aswell
