SOURCE: mercedes a class gearbox fault.no gears

If you take it to mercedes they will charge £3500 and will replace the gearbox, Alternatively you can change the shifter valve £25, new sump and filter as they have changed, fit a magnet inside the gearbox as the early A didnt have one. Fresh oil and see how you get on, the control unit for the gearbox sits inside the gearbox £1000 roughly for a new one but it has to come from mercedes in germany where it is coded to your chassis number, 2nd control units are not an option!!!!!!!

SOURCE: 2003 Mercedes C180 Compressor AUTO BOX transmission oil check

The transmission fluid is not to be checked or touched unless there is a malfunction in the system and the fluid has to be drained to repair it. The transmission is sealed form the factory and the fluid lasts the lifetime of the unit.

hello I'am a mercedes tech. when I service a deisel engine I never put syn. oil in a diesel because it is thin and I don't care what you do all disels leak oil because they have very high compression. I use 20/50 valvoline. As far as your fuel inj, cleaner we use techroline from chevron and when I service the fuel filters I add a filter full of transmission fluid( atf dex. merc.) it helps unclog and properly lube your mechanical fuel inj. I fill the big metal canister 1/2 to 3/4 full of a.t.f.. Also check your inj. return hoses they often leak. they are the black hoses running from the fuel rack to the injecter. replace if oily. If you have miner seap of engine oil do not worry too much about it that is why your car has that huge incapsulation panal underneath the engine and trans. If you have a good leak I would pressure wash the engine and inspect it for leaks. If you can,t find the leak add oil dye and inspect with blacklight. Just moniter the oil level. There is a spec. as far acceptable amount of oil consumption. I believe it is something like 1 quart for every 1,000 miles. You can take it to m.b. shop and have it set up for an oil consumption test if you are not sure. I hope this might help you with your questions.

I have a Merc c220 cdi 2001.The kickdown works only sometimes and then only once per journey.It will not travel above 85 mph (not that this is a problem).Manually shifting the auto into lower gears works...


Hi Ray
This is an unusual problem the gearbox change is controlled electronically so normally the first thing to do is get the vehicle plugged into a diagnostic machine ( this would also normally require a proper mercedes start diagnostic and not a cheap one at the local garage) But assuming it is electronic you have 2 choices the gearbox control module located in the car just below the gear change lever and the main electronic control located in the oil pan of the gearbox not so easy to access, Just a thought have you ever spilt a beverage such as coffee or soda over the gear lever area ?
as I have seen this problem before with a lack of gear selection it had shorted the module, So I guess for the cheapest first stop I would locate a second hand module from the breakers yard and try this first it should be a easy DIY anything more will require some proper mechanical skills hope this is of some help, Just a last minute thought have you checked underneath for a transmission oil leak as the oil may just be low this model suffers with the "O" ring around the electronic plug failing and causing a leak its located on the right hand side of the box just above the oil pan at the front edge.

Need advice on my mercedes e220 automatic gears stuck in first will not move up the gears when accelerating


Sounds like the transmission is stuck in "Limp Home " mode. Does it reset when you turn off the ignition ?
If it does most likely you have a typical problem of oil in the wiring loom, it seeps through the gearbox connector and through capillary action ends up in the transmission control unit. Sometimes cleaning it up with electrical cleaner works. They sell a kit to prevent it happening in the future, simple to fix.
If it doesn't reset it could still be the above problem.Best get it to a dealer or a good indie with diagnostic software. Its unlikely to be a transmission fault.

Mercedes S320 CD1 2001 model. It is an automatic


Hi

Get the fluid checked in the gearbox, it could be the slave cylinder on it's way out, or the clutch could simply be jammed. Also look around the gearbox for fluid leaks.

It is difficult to say but I think it's most likely just jammed.

Mercedes c class with tiptonic gearbox. It seems to have got stuck in a low gear when I slowed down for a roundabout. When I accelerated to 50/60 mph, the rev counter was way too high and no auto gear...


It seems oil level is low in your gearbox, and it most likely leaking from adapter bushing ( where cable is connected to gearbox).
You need to replace seals or complete bushing and correct oil level.
Better if you visit your mechanic.

I have a mercedes c200 automatic and the pipe from the gearbox to the front of car and returns is leaking what i think is a cling pipe for the transmission fluid but my car wont move from second gear?


The pipe going to the front of the car is going to the oil cooler, then returns back to the gear box.Replace the pipe and check the oil level. with the engine running.

My mercedes 1994 C220 just started smoking a lot and the auto is slipping, could this be a diaphragm problem.


No it sounds like you have a transmission leak, oil will be going onto the exhaust causing the smoke and lack of oil will cause the trans will slip.
