I have a Merc c220 cdi 2001 and kickdown works only occasionally. The max speed I can get is 85 mph, although this is not a problem in my commute. The revs won't exceed much more than 2500 in any gear...


does it have a check engine light? You need to have it scanned and yes it could be a mass air sensor, dirty fuel filters and air filters can cause this too.

old post, , M/t box. (built many)
jumps out of 1st gear.
bad shift linkage.? ever try shift it with no shift lever. to prove that? (ask)
bad 1'st gear dogs. !
bad bearing near 1st gear, causing it to bounce and jump out.
bad synchro, blocker, hub that dogs to 1st.
shift rail dentent balls failing , springs on balls, or plug fell out.

the blocker and dogs, hold the gear,
the box is constant mesh box, so gears never shift.
on the dogs lock up . (and effects a shift)
if you need a photo of that action or video that too is easy.

1st gear has the gross effect of putting huge gear spreading actions
from top 1st gear to bottom cluster, they want to spread.
so any bearings that can allow that, there, will cause 1st to fail.
easy.

It could be the vacuum modulator on your auto transmission, sometimes when vacuum hoses fail,split or whatever, they can suck up impurities causing other downstream items to fail. Also check mechanical linkage form shifter in cabin to transmission gear selector arm. If jumps were happening these might have worked loose. Best of luck!

Management Light and Automatic Transmission Fault Indicator


you may be having actual trans. problems. You said saab replaced selector switch on trans? Do you know when the last time the trans was serviced? Sometimes flushing trans will help if it has not been too long.. I recommend flushing the trans every 30k, if it has never been done and you have 90-120k you may need a new transmission.
