What's the normal rpm while shifting gears on an automatic 2006 c230?


No such figure. Shift points can be near the redline RPM or just above idle, it depends on hard you press the gas pedal.

Tip

My car is stuck in gear.


Hi.

If we are talking about automatic transmission stuck in park position, then the problem is the solenoid switch that unlocks the gear shift lever when brake pedal is pressed. The switch is located behind the brake pedal.
When the problem is the solenoid the brake lights usually do not work.
A definitive test on the switch is done by jumping the switch contacts to bypass the brake pedal switch.

If the brake pedal switch is not the problem, or if an automatic transmission is stuck in a different gear, then the first step in troubleshooting is scanning the ECU (car computer) for codes. If there is a code P0700 stored, that means that more codes are stored in the TCM (transmission control module). The TCM is the computer module controlling the transaxle, and can be tested at any authorized garage. See: I get code p0700 after an OBDII scan.
There are many possible reasons for automatic transmission malfunctions. Most common reasons (that can also cause lock in one gear) are discussed here:My car does not shift in second gear.
If you are lock in park, check the pedal switch and brake lights as a first thing.

If you have a manual transmission stuck in any gear, it is usually the gear shaft broken or detached from the hub. In that case the gear shaft must be replaced.

When does the timing belt on a 2006 c230 mercedes need to be changed


I looked this up and the engine used in this car does not use a timing belt, it has a timing chain, they are only replaced if the engine is torn down to be rebuilt.

I have a 1999 C230 Mercedes Kompressor, automatic transmission. The gear selector can be moved from park down through reverse, neutral and to drive, but refuses to move to the left to 4th. I removed the...


Hello drtonyg... This is an electronic shifter controler on the C230...Almost every time they fail the shifter assy. needs replaced as a whole unit....There have been some techs that have tried to clean and repair the shifter assembly and reuse it but most attempts fail..You can disconnect the shift linkage from the shifter assembly underneath the vehicle and then see if your shifter moves all the way(this would eliminate any shifter assembly failures)
Good luck, i hope this helps...please rate me a fixya.
