most newer vehicles have transmission control modules,that go to a default of 2nd or 3rd gear when they go bad! I had a 91 plymouth stuck in 3rd gear because of this module! could be your problem! when mine went out, it smelled like something electrical burned inside the the passenger cabin! I would check all the electrical connections on the transmission first good luck

Wether it fixes the origonal problem or not the condition of the battery and its charging system is very important. todays car will not opperate correctly if the battery doesn't hold a charge(should be at 12.6volts) and the alt. should be charging between 13.5 and 14volts.

The automatic transmissions on these vehicles are not durable and will definitely not last the life of the car. The E class is a nice car but the mechanical build quality is not of a high standard (it's just complex and expensive).
If the vehicle has clocked around 70000 miles or more you can expect auto transmission problems like you are experiencing now. The symptoms you describe are an indication that the transmission is on its way to total failure. The only fix is to fit a rebuilt transmission which will be very expensive.
( Take the vehicle to a transmission specialist that handles Mercedes auto transmissions and I am sure you will receive the same advice after a road test on the car is carried out).
I'm afraid that If you retain the car you can expect quite a few expensive maintenance and repair costs as the miles clock up.
