Engine vibration


check for loose engine mounts(usually 15-19mm nut that tightens the rubber mount which dampens vibrations) located either side of engine block not sure if they are in engine bay or underneath near axles. check gearbox and Eng oil levels if everything seems to be ok it may be a gearbox problem and not completely engaging disengaging gear

I have a 1985 Mercedes 300TD While entering the freeway, the engine started racing as if in neutral while in D. after a full stop all seemed fine until about 12 mph, when again no gear. Drives fine in L...


Dear kev4,

The problem seems to be originating from your gearbox. The gear box has two main components that convert the torque of the engine to the tailshaft; the 'torque converter' and the 'bands' within the gearbox. If at higher rpm the car starts to rev higher and slow down then it would suggest that one of these two components are slipping or not functioning correctly.

To fix this problem you will have to take your car to a gearbox specialist who with either reccomend a replacement gearbox, a overhaul of the orriginal gearbox or if you get lucky a new torque converter. Unfortunately this car be a costly opperation but is quite important in reguards to the life of the vehicle.

Reguards luke.

Power steering problem when moving slow or rpm drop


no it is the power steering pump. the pump is worn so at low rpm or low speeds it is real tough to steer. but when the rpm is picked up the steering gets easier.

Also check belt tension but at high rpm speeds the belt would slip and squel real loud. so i would point the problem to the power steering pump.

hope this fixs ya!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Power steering lacking at parking and slow turns


It is possible that the pump is failing...even though it is quiet. It could also be that the steering rack inner seals have lost their effectiveness. When the fluid heats up, it gets thinner, and it is more likely to leak past worn seals, which you undoubted have somewhere. But after 300,000 miles...you can't complain to GM. Those cars are about as bullet proof as they come. Good luck.
