Shifter valve inside the gearbox, £25 for the part, could also be the control unit, eiterh way you will be looking at a big bill to fix. Find a good indie mercedes specialist in you area and speak to them, you could always retro fit the manual box instead.

I have a Merc c220 cdi 2001 and kickdown works only occasionally. The max speed I can get is 85 mph, although this is not a problem in my commute. The revs won't exceed much more than 2500 in any gear...


does it have a check engine light? You need to have it scanned and yes it could be a mass air sensor, dirty fuel filters and air filters can cause this too.

I have a Merc c220 cdi 2001.The kickdown works only sometimes and then only once per journey.It will not travel above 85 mph (not that this is a problem).Manually shifting the auto into lower gears works...


Hi Ray
This is an unusual problem the gearbox change is controlled electronically so normally the first thing to do is get the vehicle plugged into a diagnostic machine ( this would also normally require a proper mercedes start diagnostic and not a cheap one at the local garage) But assuming it is electronic you have 2 choices the gearbox control module located in the car just below the gear change lever and the main electronic control located in the oil pan of the gearbox not so easy to access, Just a thought have you ever spilt a beverage such as coffee or soda over the gear lever area ?
as I have seen this problem before with a lack of gear selection it had shorted the module, So I guess for the cheapest first stop I would locate a second hand module from the breakers yard and try this first it should be a easy DIY anything more will require some proper mechanical skills hope this is of some help, Just a last minute thought have you checked underneath for a transmission oil leak as the oil may just be low this model suffers with the "O" ring around the electronic plug failing and causing a leak its located on the right hand side of the box just above the oil pan at the front edge.

My e 200 1998 merc automatic drive, having problem when shifing from 2nd gear to 3rd gear. Its take sometime to shift 3rd gear, do i need to overhaul the gear box?


yous should probably change the filter before you overhaul it because it is cheaper

to change you need

new filter and 2 gallons of trans fluid= $54

if you do it your self and that might solve the problem

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.

Last one I had that did this turned out to be the vehicle speed sensor that it mounted in the electric valve panel in the valve body.
