Question about 1997 Mercedes-Benz E-Class

1 Answer

Overheats, and wont switch gears at times.

I have a 1997 mercedes e class that overheats, and wont switch gears at times. I thought it was b/c it needed an oil change, but still has this problem afterwards too. My car will get me to a place but then it takes an hour or so before my car starts up again when i am ready to go again. It won't turn back on for an hour after i last turn my car off.

Well overheating and not starting are possibly 2 different issues. Oil is not the cause of overheating. Thermostat, water pump, electric fans and viscous fan are causes for overheating plus the sensors that control the fans. Not starting could be caused by the overheating but most likely its a fuel or ignition issue.

BUMMER DEAL! It could have a sludge problem that needs that lower gear nudge to get it to shift. Just changing fluid is not enough. You need stronger medicine. Try this Mega Power product as it seems made to end that problem. Hope this helps.

My car moves forward but when i shifted to backward, car doesn't move. I checked oil level, it's very less. Is replenishing the oil will solve the problem? Are there any reasons other than oil level?


Warm the car engine.Change through all the gears and finish in N.Check the transmission oil level.If it needs trans oil,add the oil into the tube that the trans fluid dipstick is located.The gears wont work if the trans oil level is low.Probably a good idea to find the oil leak.I hope this helps

E200 Auto 1997 model, jerks when the gear shifts automatically.


It looks like you need to overhaul your tranny, perhaps change the filters only or worst, the solenoid.Since its happening only once a while, perhaps a transmission oil change may solve the problem, but ultimately I believe you'll still have to replace those clogged up filters in your gearbox
