Generally speaking, Mercedes transmissions don't use 1st gear unless the throttle is floored on take-off or manually locked down to "2".

Check your transmission settings, you should see a switch that says W and S (around the shifter area). IT should be on S. W is only used on wet or snow conditions.

Whilst driving, my E280 gear box moved into neutral for about a second or two, and it shifted into the next gear with a strong sudden ****.


seems like faulty transmission, the reason is when you drive the car gears are up shift form 1 to 2 , 2 to 3, 3 to 4, 4 to 5, like that it should be 7 speed auto trans mission in your car, if you mention when which gear up shift the problem occurred I can give more information about what's the fault in transmission, so according to your details it's like two gears are engage together, when two gears are engage same time the transmission control unit understand it's something getting wrong in the transmission according to actual value of gear ratio, then trans mission change the gear to neutral for a second and after that it give the one lower gear than the gear which was stuck and drive fine, this thing might not happen all the time but is the problem verse it can happen all the time, the solution is you must get your car to the Mercedes dealer workshop then they can find what's the wrong inside the transmission before remove it, they have advance diagnose tool for it, then they will repair your transmission, this is the cheapest way, if some one repair your transmission without right understanding regarding what's the exactly fault you will be stuck, may have to be remove again and again,

What gear can I start with & which one is the speed gear


almost without exception start in first. this will save your clutch. try to keep your car in the highest gear you can but keep your engine rpms above 1500. if you need to pass you can down shift one gear, pass then get back to top gear. the best way to learn is to drive. every car is diffrent.
