Question about Mercedes-Benz B-Class

2 Answers

The gears do not change and from the owners manual a possible problem is indicated as a leaking transmission. The vehicle is a 1998 model. I have never had to put in automatic transmission fluid since I bought it. Presently it does start but all gears are not engaging.

Yes, low transmission fluid from a leak will cause loss of gear-changing ability. Also, eventually,
if you were to try to drive the car on a dry transmission (for a distance as short as 4 blocks), you
can permanently ruin the transmission.
Most mechanics would advise you to top up the transmission fluid and drive to your nearest
transmission repair shop, where they will probably not determine the source of the problem and
fix it - most transmission shops don't repair transmissions, they simply replace them, and send
the faulty transmission to a real transmission repair shop, from which they order their rebuilt
replacement transmissions.

Never mind the owners manual or the haynes book just call a local mechanic to have a look for you to throw some light on the subject then if still dubious then post the mechancis reply for a yes or no its possible answer ,could be something simple or a expensive oil pump change and without a hands on look i couldnt tell you whats wrong .

Are you the original owner? Has it always done this since you have owned it? It is possible to install a manual valve body in some of these transmissions, which works just as you discribe.

The
shifter needs to be inspected. Its quite possible that The
shifter assembly is got misaligned, it has to be open and realign.








There
are many other possibilities. But if it was working right up till now and
suddenly this shifting problem occurred then its shifter
assembly alignment issue.




Also
i suggest you to refer these gear shift issues, which are mostly noticed. These
are direct links with appropriate solutions to
the specific problems of gear shift

Running on a gear, i.e gear not changing according to speed


First thing to check is the level of your transmission fluid, as this is the classic symptom of a car
whose tranny fluid level has dipped too low.
If level low, then you may have a transmission fluid leak (not unexpected in a 1998 vehicle), and
may want to inspect the transmission pan gasket (which may be the source of the leak).

Transmission slips all the time... is the transmission goin out?


I assume you have an automatic transmission; most of the time when people with manual transmissions get slippage, they start moaning about a bad clutch.

If the transmission fluid is clean and at the proper level, and the filter screen is not clogged, then you have a bad torque converter seal or a problem with the transmission itself.

Check the fluid first. If it is low, add fluid according to the directions in the owner's manual, put some disposable paper or cardboard under the vehicle, run the transmission through each gear, then check the paper or cardboard for drip marks indicating a leak. If the fluid is dirty, has metallic particles in it, or smells burned, it's time to talk to a transmission overhaul shop.

How do i change the transmission fluid


1. A variety of fluids are used for different transmissions. Automatic transmissions use something called - shockingly - automatic transmission fluid. Manual transmissions use a variety of oils: regular motor oil, heavyweight hypoid gear oil or even automatic transmission fluid in some cases. Your owner’s manual will tell you what your transmission calls for. So, get to know what type of transmission fluid should be used for your vehicle. This information is contained in your owner’s manual - if not contact the manufacturer who should be able to tell you.
2. Park your car so that it is level on the ground and leave the gear in Park or Neutral position. Usually the ATF is checked at the idling engine but everything depends on your vehicle. Firstly read your owner?s manual carefully and if it requires the engine to be running, start the car up and wait for it to warm.
3. Locate the ATF dipstick. Usually it is a bit shorter than the engine oil dipstick. In some cases it will have a label on it, so your job will be made much easier!
4. Take the dipstick out.
5. Do the same once again in order to make sure the dipstick indication is true.
6. The color and smell of transmission fluid can also indicate potential problems. Wipe the fluid onto a white sheet of paper or kitchen towel. It is usually red, and should be transparent and clean in appearance and free of black bits or flakes. It may be more reddish-brown because of age but never should be dark or black or smell of burning. You may not be able to fix the car if the fluid shows some of these characteristics, so just seek professional advice.
7. Check the top of the dipstick and see if the fluid marking comes up to the ‘full’ line. Also check that you are looking at the warm reading - there should be one for ‘warm’ and one for ‘cold’.
8. You need to add some more fluid if it does not come to up to the ‘full’ line. Unlike engine oil, transmission oil doesn’t burn up. So if you’re low on transmission fluid, you almost certainly have a leak. Carefully look for leak and if you find it remove as soon as you can. In case it is left it can cause the expensive repair of transmission system.
9. To add the fluid, simply use a funnel to pour it into the system. Add the fluid slowly and keep checking the dipstick until it reaches the ‘full’ point. Remember, you’ll waste your time taking the ATF out again if you add it too much.
10. Wipe the dipstick when finish the work and make sure it is back in securely.

Myself I would give the fluid filter change a shot.
If the fluid still looks good then most likely you haven't smoked any clutches. It could just be the filter is clogged and not picking up fluid properly.
Of course it is possible that it is something more serious.
Parts store should be able to hook you up with correct filter and probably capacity.
