SOURCE: gear doesnt change

Sounds like one of the nylon drum/clutch pack seals was damage during reassembly. You'll have to pull it back out open it back up and replace the seals.

SOURCE: Servicing my Mercedes C200

Gearbox -> Synthetic automatic transmission fluid
Differential -> Either 90W engine oil or 85W90 gear lubricant
Engine oil -> Not really sure of the weather in Uganda but I take it it stays pretty warm all year long, probably 20W-40 or 15W-40 synthetic
Spark plugs -> Well there could be a long debate over that... if you're having engine performance/missing problems i'd try replacing them right away but with any gasoline ignition system i try to replace the plugs about once a year... plug wires about 5 years... regardless of condition. In my case, i don't usually go for expensive "platinum" or whatever kind of plug that costs about 10 times as much and usually don't do much of a difference... I'd rather buy reasonably priced spark plugs and replace them regularly, and get a much better result and more money in my pockets... because even if you did buy the expensive ones you usually end up replacing them at about the same time you would have the cheaper ones, with the same effect

SOURCE: mercedes a class gearbox fault.no gears

If you take it to mercedes they will charge £3500 and will replace the gearbox, Alternatively you can change the shifter valve £25, new sump and filter as they have changed, fit a magnet inside the gearbox as the early A didnt have one. Fresh oil and see how you get on, the control unit for the gearbox sits inside the gearbox £1000 roughly for a new one but it has to come from mercedes in germany where it is coded to your chassis number, 2nd control units are not an option!!!!!!!

Reverse not working 2006 KIA Sorento


Your right about too much electronics ,and no the front clutch works all motion in the gearbox ,now iam not sure about this model but the renault gearbox that i have worked on fairly regular compared to other makes has a solonoid inside the gearbox that is operated by the lever for drive and reverse ,now the problem here is you have to remove the gearbox sump to test it ,also here in spain the parts are not sold seperate but only a complete exchange gearbox and if you ask at the dealer they will want to just change the gearbox as more profit in this than a repair but try a independante auto box garage which you will have in america or the Uk even germany but spain?? Now here their called granny boxes for old pensioners from northern europe and you would be laughed at trying to ask for a repair ,

Mercedes c class with tiptonic gearbox. It seems to have got stuck in a low gear when I slowed down for a roundabout. When I accelerated to 50/60 mph, the rev counter was way too high and no auto gear...


It seems oil level is low in your gearbox, and it most likely leaking from adapter bushing ( where cable is connected to gearbox).
You need to replace seals or complete bushing and correct oil level.
Better if you visit your mechanic.
