Modulator valve may be bad or the vacuum line is broke also there is a govenor that could be sticking, first change the transmission fluid and check the vacuum line to transmission.

I have a 1983 Mercedes 300 TD wagon that slips when shifting from 2nd to 3rd gear, is there an adjustment in the trans or a good additive that will help with this problem, walter


Dear Walter.There is not a lot you can do to an auto trans except check the level of the fluid.Run it through all the gears and put it in neutral.Make sure the engine is warm.Now check the fluid level.Top it up through the same tube as the dipstick for the tranny.Hope this helps

TRANS STUCK IN 3RD ON A DODGE CARAVAN 2000


The mechanic should check the third gear of the transmission . And the shift gear check the shift gear too for why it stuck while on the third gear. if the gear is worn out or destroyed then replace the third gear.Then also look and check the oil seal to make sure the problem is solved. then check and adjust the shift lever sleeve so that it will not stuck.

Overdrive not shifting correctly


Not sure on yours but on my vehicle, it doesn't shift up until engine reaches a certain temerature, and right now in the winter weather it takes a little longer. On mine it's normal.
