Sorry your rebuilt trans did not fix your problem P1120 is TPS out of range The throttle position sensor responds to the gas pedal movement . of speed and angle it is moved Most sensors are 3 wired which has a supplied voltage of 5 volts and a ground and a signal return voltage this signal starts around .5 volts closed throttle plate and slowly works to 5 volts at full open position with a volt meter test the return signal while operating the throttle plate (engine off key on) look for glitches is voltage span go slow if this test fine check at computer the wire can be broken somewhere.

    the transmission relies on this signal to control the shifting points by varying the line pressure control if the sensor is hi pressure is high you will get a hard late shift and if low it will shift early and slip into gears and come out of gear as throttle is depressed the p1120 code should be a easy one to repair .

I have 1981 Mb 300sd,when I start moving uphill direction the transmision feel like slip out.Does the tranmision needs to be rebuilt?

Look at the transmission fluid on a level surface as the vehicle is running . Is the level correct? Now how about the color is it? Is it blackish ? Low level transmission fluid will not allow the vehicle to go in gears correctly. It will engage hard. Now the color dark is the clutch fiber the transmission is out of adjustment and will operate out of range. Now if it slip out going up a hill there is a great demand on the transmission . The band which is a clutch fiber must hold the drum in order to transfer power if it can't the transmission slips and a overhaul will be in order. Just dont overlook the probability,and the simple solution and yes you will definetly need to rebuild the transmission

The automatic transmision is slipping when going into fist gear. Also the check trans lite has just appeared.Could this be an expensive fix?

The first thing I would do is check the fluid level. If the fluid is low, it will cause the transmission to slip. If you find that it is low, you need to find out why and fix it. It may be something as simple as tightening a clamp on a transmission cooler hose.

If the fluid is not low, then it will probably require a transmission overhaul to fix it.

My transmision fluid is black and two transmision mechanics say if you change transmision fluid the car wont run no more is this true sombody please help me they are saying im going to need a new...

The mechanics lied to you. Changing the transmission fluid and screen will not cause any car not to run. Just as you need to periodically change the oil, the same holds true for transmission fluid. Though the fluid is black, yoou state that you have no slippage or nothing out of the ordinary. If that is the case, then you do not need a new transmission. Just have the fluid and screen replaced and all will be fine. Make sure to pick up a transmission pan gasket while you get the necessary fluid and screen. Again, changing the fluid will not cause any car to not run. It is safe to perform the fluid change.

A little transmision hesatation.

Bear in mind that for the transmission to work properly, the engine needs to be running at optimum specs. If the engine is even just a tiny bit off these, the transmission will not respond properly. For instance, a partially clogged air filter will cause these symptoms.A project such as what you're wanting to do with modifying your car Will set you back about 3000 dollars and Will affect your gas mileage, to the point that it is economically not feasible..accordianman
