1995 Mercedes C280 Transmission Bands Adjustment?


The bands have no adjustment provision, if you have a slipping transmission then the next thing you need to do is rebuild it.

Transmission is not shifting in 1 or 2nd only. park is good, reverse good, neutral good, motor is not hot, fluid smell and looks good


when your fluid starts to turn dark and you'll smell the fluid,you will know if it's burnt,this happens when the bands gets loose and out of adjustment,as your coming to a stop with your foot off the accelerator pedal and the vehicle starts to slow down the band will help the transmission to slow as well as the vehicle,but if the bands are loose and not tight enough,your clutch's will try to slow the vehicle,when this happens the clutch's will not hold and start to slip,and this will burn the clutch's as well as the fluid,after this keeps happening the clutch's will start to slip when you start to take off from a stop,and will burn the clutch's even more,now your in need of a transmission rebuilt,so when you notice the fluid starting to smell and turn from red to dark red or black,the best thing to do is take it to a transmission shop and have the fluid and filter replaced,and have them adjust the bands,if you try this at home the fluid change should not be a problem but the band adjustment is a different story,if you don't follow step by step and tighten the band's too tight you can break the band's and that will make a for sure thing that you will need a rebuild,so just because the fluid gets burnt doesn't mean you need a rebuild unless you have driven it to long.

I have 1981 Mb 300sd,when I start moving uphill direction the transmision feel like slip out.Does the tranmision needs to be rebuilt?


Look at the transmission fluid on a level surface as the vehicle is running . Is the level correct? Now how about the color is it? Is it blackish ? Low level transmission fluid will not allow the vehicle to go in gears correctly. It will engage hard. Now the color dark is the clutch fiber the transmission is out of adjustment and will operate out of range. Now if it slip out going up a hill there is a great demand on the transmission . The band which is a clutch fiber must hold the drum in order to transfer power if it can't the transmission slips and a overhaul will be in order. Just dont overlook the probability,and the simple solution and yes you will definetly need to rebuild the transmission

Where is the fuel cutoff switch on a 1983 mercedes 300 D?


the fuel cut-off is a vacuum cut off which is mounted on the rear of the fuel injector. it has a brown vacuum hose attached to it. To check it after it is out you push the plunger in while holding your finger tightly on the vac port to see if it holds pressure. The replacement part is a "BOSCH" #1427133091 for around $100. Many times the failure of the cut-off is not the switch but is in the vacuum system. you can check this by attaching the brown vac hose directly to the vac system at the yellow round check valve right above the cut-off switch.The HAYNES manual #63012 will explaine the systems I described very well.

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

It is a straight forward procedure, but getting it around the fan is tight. Just put a wrench on the belt tensioner pulley, and pull up on it to loosen the belt. While holding the tensioner up, slip the belt off. Just make sure you draw a diagram of the belt routing, before taking it off.
