1996 Merc C180 Auto
This vehicle will have no doubt covered a lot of miles and the auto transmissions on them are not, in any event, particularly durable (just complex and expensive). Some are inadequately serviced and, in these cases, the life is even shorter.
The problem you are experiencing is an indication that the transmission is dying and in due course you can anticipate total failure. As it is, it is not really drivable.
The only fix is to replace the transmission with a rebuilt one which will be very expensive. Some auto transmissions in this model have also had serious computer control problems but in your case, from what you have said, I believe it is wear and tear of the transmission components.
Unfortunately, if you own one of these cars with significant miles on it, you can expect to have significant and expensive mechanical issues to rectify to keep the car running and roadworthy.
