Question about 2002 Mercedes-Benz M-Class

Open Question

My 2002 ml270 cdi is delaying or not engaging in reverse, on the first attempt. it is slow to take off from idle and is sometimes lacking in power up the gears. could this be just a gearbox oil level problem or something more serious?

Check and make sure you used the right type of lube. The reason I say this is a feww years ago i put 90weight in one of mine and it would not shift they are several types of gear lube used nowdays some gear boxes like like automatic tany fluid. Just something to check.

SOURCE: when accelerating there is no

Hi, this is a common symptom of a clogged fuel filter that is straining the fuel pump itself.

When you accelerate, this initiates a rapid fuel flow through the lines. if the filter cant pass the proper amount, its will stall or hesitate the engine and cause sputtering or loss of power. due to this clogged filter, the pump cant keep up with your acceleration demands at this time. the reason for the power pick up upon De acceleration, is because the lower amount of fuel is able to pass through quite easily but, as soon as you demand more power, the clog will obstruct the more intense flow of fuel to the injectors.

Simply replacing the fuel filter and pump will fix this issue.

Please rate and god bless:)

SOURCE: hyundai excel 1996 automatic will engage reverse

It appears you have a Forward Clutch FAILURE. Replace the trans after you get it diagnosed and verified by a professional technician. By the way, do you have a Check Engine light? If so, what is the diagnostic code? The dealership can scan the system and find any codes which may have been stored in the TCM (Transmission Control Module). If there were any 'Incorrect Gear Ratio" codes, it's most probably the trans itself.

Gear hits and jerks when being engaged especially when engaging in the reverse


It sounds like a delayed shift issue, does the engine idle speed sound or feel like it is to high? That can cause this issue.

When I press the gas pedal hard and it downshifts sometimes it gives a loud hissing type sound and feels like the clutch is slipping. I have the automatic tranny and the 3.0 on my 02 spyder convertible.


Hi,

Thanks for using Fixya.

One of the most common complaints with automatics is fluid leaks. Fluid can leak out of the driveshaft seals, the input shaft seal, the transmission pan gasket, the torque converter or the ATF cooler and line connections. If the fluid level gets low, the transmission may be slow to engage when it is shifted into drive. Gear shifts may be sloppy or delayed, or the transmission may slip between shifts. If the fluid level is really low, the transmission may cause the vehicle to not go at all. I hope this helps.

Thanks and have a nice day.

Delay engagement of transmission


I would get the auto transmission "power flushed"; that will remove all of the dirty oil and any contaminents. That is the first thing to do, and usually works pretty good. Let us know how it turns out., Thanks.

94' jeep grand cherokee trans. delays in reverse


Hi ray_c_brown, This pause is determined by a time lag test, and you can check this yourself with a stop watch.Engagement time in "D" range should be a maximum of 1.2 seconds and the engagement time for reverse should be a maximum of 1.5 seconds. So with your vehicle warmed up and assuming curb idle speed is correct set the park brake,make sure ac is off (air cond) shift transfer case to 2H or if it is a NP249 transfer case leave in 4H,put your vehicle into neutral and set your stop watch shift to Drive and record time repeat this a couple of times and do the same with reverse,as you said the delay is with reverse so if it takes longer than 1.5 seconds here are a few things it could be:shift cable adjustment,low line pressure,worn direct clutch, first/reverse brake worn or a worn or damaged overdrive clutch.Hope this helps you good luck :)
