I have purchased a 86 Mrecedes Benz 300E with just over a 100000 miles. Recently the tranmission has had problems. The tranny began to shift erracticly, and now only in 1st and reverse gears. On occasion it will shift through all the gears. But stopping at a light brings this progress back to 1st or reverse gears. I know the tranny has a comptuter and a TCU. But I lost. Help

Consult your car's manual on how to check your transmission fluid. If it is too low or high, it can cause some shifting problems and even cause some serious and expensive damage. If your fluid is ok or are not sure about it, go to a local car store like Auto Zone or NAPA and have them check your fluid and run a diagnostic computer on your car. Your car may tell you what is wrong.

Us independants honestly do care
