1997 Mercedes Benz C200 auto gearbox

Thanks for your solution on servicing my 1997 MB C200. I really appreciate. I have another problem and could still use your assistance.

When I am driving, the first two gear changes are very smooth but the third gear change isn't so smooth. It doesn't change as quick and when it does, it seems strained and a little bit rough. What could be the problem?

Secondly, these days in the morning, when I start the engine, it stalls. I have to first race the engine for it not to stall. It didn't behave this way in the begining. What could be the problem.

Thanks,

Allan

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

There is a special additive lubricant for gear transmission to solve this problem. Just add on to gear oil. I had the same problem. now ok.

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.
