SOURCE: Mercedes 2001 E210 320CDI, goes often in to Limp

The automatic transmissions on these vehicles are not durable and will definitely not last the life of the car. The E class is a nice car but the mechanical build quality is not of a high standard (it's just complex and expensive).

If the vehicle has clocked around 70000 miles or more you can expect auto transmission problems like you are experiencing now. The symptoms you describe are an indication that the transmission is on its way to total failure. The only fix is to fit a rebuilt transmission which will be very expensive.
( Take the vehicle to a transmission specialist that handles Mercedes auto transmissions and I am sure you will receive the same advice after a road test on the car is carried out).

I'm afraid that If you retain the car you can expect quite a few expensive maintenance and repair costs as the miles clock up.

Hello, My 1994 BMW 740i is not shifting into 5th gear on automatic mode, it happens after it being driven for while and is warm, when cold it shifts gear till 5th gear normally, when it gets stuck on 4th...


IMO it's more likely that you have the wrong grade of ATF. It's very important to have the correct grade. The following site shows this:
http://www.nairaland.com/1364064/automatic-gearbox-problems
each car manufacturer has recommended grades of Automatic Transmission Fluid, BMW is no exception. the following website for BMWs may bring you more accurate data:

Apparently CTSC is the supplier for BMWs via the web.
Generally auto gearboxes have drain plugs and filler plugs to enable oil change in routine maintenance. But I would definately go back to the garage where you had the last service and ask politely about the grade of ATF used, before considering an 'oil change'.
Good Luck

Automatic Transmition Shifting Problem when Engine is cold


The auto was notorious for clutch pack failure. Tolerances were tight in the inner workings and this caused inadequate oil flow and poor cooling. Sooner or later the auto transmissions fail. You could have the transmission rebuilt but that will cost a bit to do it so it wont break again. I might recomend going back to honda atf and changing the fluid again. If that does not work try an additive oil for the transmission. I had some sucess with the recomend product.

last resort, have it swapped to a manual transmission. This is a cheap alternative as f series transmissions from the accord can bolt up to the h22 and can be found cheap at the expense of higher gear ratios.

HOW CAN I FIX A GEARBOX OF AN AUTOMATIC NISSAN B14


Auto boxes are best left to professionals but there are some things you can do 1) check that the selector rod from beneath the gear shift to the gear selector on the side of the gear box is correctly adjusted, 2) make sure that the transmission oil is at the right level, new oil can be added via the dip stick tube. If you are adventurous and are able to remove the gearbox pan you might be to see evidence of the gear box damage, metal shavings etc. If you can remove the gearbox you may be able to replace a sheared splined input shaft (indicated by a an engine that is running but that will simply not engage gear). Anything repairs beyond this should be left to an expert or simply replace the gearbox

Transmission in 85 mercedes 300d shifts fine till it gets to 4th gear...makes a clank noise as it shifts...fluid level is OK...any ideas or suggestions on hoe to solve??


When the transmission-oil level is good and it's only 1 gear and your clutch isn't worn badly (= working normally, not like you can shift without (hardly) clutching), it's probably a bad tension-plate in the gearbox. Solving it means rebuilding the box or getting a replacement, both quite expensive.

Gearbox sometimes take a while to go into drive


if it is hard to shift when the vehicle is cold chances are that the oil in the gear box is too thick take it to a shop and try using a thinner oil than what is in the gear box and this will eradicae your problem
