Question about 1998 Mercedes-Benz E-Class

1 Answer

E200 Auto 1997 model, jerks when the gear shifts automatically.

It happened only once few days ago and now its fine. I was driving along and each time you pressed the accelerator, and the gear went up a notch I got a ****, even when I came o a stop, suddenly there would be a shake, probably when the gear came down a notch. Sorry if my explanation is a bit Non Technical, I am not a mechanic.

It looks like you need to overhaul your tranny, perhaps change the filters only or worst, the solenoid.Since its happening only once a while, perhaps a transmission oil change may solve the problem, but ultimately I believe you'll still have to replace those clogged up filters in your gearbox

Rav4 Automatic Transmission Jerks into Second


check the level of the transmission fluid while the engine is running.
also has the transmission been "flushed"? a lot of shops just use
dextron atf with the additives supplied by the supplier of the flushing machine.
this can cause problems in toyotas.
replacing the fluid with the correct (T IV) transmission fluid
may help.
but if you are having this much trouble it may be too late.

Mariner wont shift out of first


You just changed the fluid as few months ago

Why would it be low?

Low fluid level may have caused it to slip & ruin
the clutch discs

You may have bad trans solenoids or other shift
strategy sensors that need to be diagnosed

If you had the wrong fluid put in your have possible
problems

Need a shop to spend some time with it,explain all
that has been done,why,how,etc & make sure you
drive on a road test & take a mechanic along

Pt cruiser jerks when acclerating, hesitates when not accelerating, fine when idle


I am not saying this is the solution or this is the problem but the PT cruiser suffer from code P0344 Which is the cam position sensor which causes misfire, the solution is a reflash of the ECM.But before a reflash the Camshaft postion sensor needs to be verified for working condition and if possible duplicated.Once the Check Engine light does come on you automatically go to limp home mode, This is the drag that you experience,the purpose is to protect the catalytic,in case there was a true condition with intermittent cam postion sensor,You need the check engine light code, then you can go from there.

The torque converter clutch issue, won't effect the
shifting issues

I would stop using it,unless your prepared to
completely rebuild it, in a few weeks.

It has to be diagnosed and resolved, now,quickly.

Having once owned a trans shop, I don't like the
fact your driving it at all,hung shifts for 7 miles
will do it in

Jerks going into 3rd Gear


more than likely you will need a valve body rebuild. you are probably looking around $500+. don't let them try to sell you a transmission. you could search ebay and see if you can find a "rebuilt valve body" but make sure it is for a '00 to '02 SL2
