Recently, shifting doesn't happen. trans remains in 3rd gear until the engine is turned off and sets for about 10 minutes. I am told it is a shifter problem. does this shifter have a need for oil or...

In most cases it is called a "3-2 Shift Solenoid" and it is located inside the tranny. I would take the vehicle to a Mercedes dealership and for about $30.00 they will confirm this by using a computer diagnostic device. I feel that most dealerships have better equipment for detecting this kind of problem.Then after you can decide on a repair garage of your choice to do the job!

Engine on my Mercedes 560 SEL seized, can you give me any tips for changing it? Do I have to get engine from the same model, or can I use engine from a different model as well?

Alot of cars are interchangable. You can call any Automoble Junk yard in your area and they will tell you the year and models that will interchange.

Hope this helps.
