Mercedes benz 260E gear slipping

Heres the deal...I have a mercedes benz 260E, 1987
when im draving calmly, and its time to shift into third or fourth, im not that sure, it feels like the gear is slipping, as if the car is in neutral between the gears; and it makes the rpms go up while it shifts...
another scenario;..when i put the gas pedal all the way and activate the kickdown switch,and, lets say, decide to slow down at 80 km/h, and take my foot off the gas, the same slipping gear problem occurs
however, if i drive it racing style, and let it shift at the end of its gears, there seems to be no problem..
do i have to replace the transmission??what to do?

Try changing the fluid in the transmission first this may solve it, if you are not sure when it was changed.

1987 benz 300 E is slow or doesnt want to go in drive when first started, it is an automatic transmission. what could be causing this?


Have you checked your fluid level? If it's too low on fluid, it won't shift gears, and if it does, it shifts very roughly. Or perhaps even your gear line could be bad.

I have a 1987 260e mercedes benz and i just got a new battery and its dead already


Recharge battery from home, or take battery to supplier to see if it charges, when charged check dash to see if light is on when running, if there is a red light which might be very faint, get diode replaced in alternater, (or checked to see if it is charging) (lot cheaper than buying new alternater). Which most dealers will try and sell you.

87 Mercedes Benz 300E thumping issue.


I believe you have a transmission mount that is bad, possibly and engine mount. When you are shifting the engine will raise and bump the firewall, floorpan.
Good luck

Mercedes after shifting to reverse to drive the 1st gear slips


mercedes did nothing wrong your transmission is probably blown up. no way they could put in the wrong parts they wouldn't fit. how many miles are on your trans now? did you ever do a transmission service on the transmission that mercedes says is lifetime fluid? dont do back to the dealer find an independant shop that specializes in mercedes, like the one i work for. the dealer doesnt care about its clients. Us independants honestly do care
