Something is wrong in the valve body of the transmission - it looks like the oil pressure is too low. The transmission must be taken out of the car the valve body removed, disassembled and tested to identify the malfunctioning valve.

What's the normal rpm while shifting gears on an automatic 2006 c230?


No such figure. Shift points can be near the redline RPM or just above idle, it depends on hard you press the gas pedal.

Why does the oil engine light come on when i engage the clutch ?


Hi!

When a car is in gear with the Gas pedal pushed down, the engine RPM is high so the oil pressure is high too that means the Sending unit is detecting high pressure. But when you engage the clutch that means the gas pedal is released so the RPM drops and the pressure drops down too. So all i can say is that you might have a bad oil pump that needs always high RPM to keep the oil pressure normal.

Good luck

Check the vacum lines going to the distributor and transmission. If they are leaking it could be your problem.

It's fuel infected and it has a vacuum leak, most likely a PCV valve that is stuck open, I've seen a few now. Replace the PCV valve 1st, if that doesn't fix it, start looking for a hose that has come off.

one unit that operates ratio changes and is connected to the engine is that vacuum operated actuator on the transmission
it is possible that that unit is failing , vacuum hose is leaking and that will cause ratio changes as the vacuum varies
run the fault codes to check for wiring problems or VSS or TCM problems as well
