If you call your merc dealer they should give it to you on the phone, if not have a look at this web site, if not, then if you take out the unit and let me know the s/no: i will see i have it.

SOURCE: 1993 4l60e - Shifts hard on the 1-2 shift, works fine otherwise.

Did you change the transmission filter and gasket as well as the transmission oil before running your truck.

SOURCE: 1999 Mercedes E430. Sometimes it will start,

The crankshaft position sensors tend to fail. Symptoms of this are: The engine will crank—but not start—especially when the engine is warm. The car may start again if it is left to cool off, but it may run roughly or have poor performance. Communicating these specific symptoms to your technician can save diagnostic time.

SOURCE: Car shifts hard (up & down), especially shifting to reverse.

that delayed reaction may be the transmission slipping. with those many miles it could be the transmission going bad

My mercedes 2000 E430 transmission was going into neutral by itsself after stop sometime.


With MBZ transmissions, you really need the trouble codes before you replace anything ; I would have the fluid and filter checked and replaced first. Without seeing your car, if a basic service does not solve the problem -- problem could be attributed to a number of parts; including but not limited to the conductor plate / shifter (best case scenario) to a wide range of failing internal transmission parts

On a 2006 ML350, is it necessary to get the transmission service (new filter) after 48K miles??


yes Mercedes changed the transmission service interval to 40k miles but then after that you don't have to service the transmission until you reach 140k miles. It is a good idea to the transmission serviced at this mileage especially for warranty purposes. There was a lot of issues with the new 722.9 transmission when it first came out. Which is one of the reasons Mercedes moved up the transmission service from 100k miles to 40k miles for the first time it needs to be serviced anyways. Plus if the transmission happens to need repairing the first thing the dealership will look for is to see if the trans service had been done at 40k miles before doing any kind of warranty work on the vehicle. As a former Mercedes Benz Tech at the dealership I would say yes it is necessary to get the trans serviced.

The transmission does not change gears stays in first


first check trans mission oil level in your car, for do that you can't do it your self, you must get it in to the Mercedes workshop, because only Mercedes work shop have the right dipstick for check transmission oil, and also check, is it due for service, one thing I can note for your consideration. one impotent thing can occurred to make trouble in your transmission control, if you not done the trans mission at right time? it's can oil leaking from pilot bush, if pilot bush leaking that oil can flow through wiring to transmission control unit, if oil flow in to the control unit it can be faulty, best way to check those things you must have to get your car to the experiences Mercedes technician then he know how to do that, otherwise if do some thing wrong it would be harm to the electronic controlled trans mission control system, some time could be some thing else wrong, without diagnose hard to say exactly what's the wrong, is this information helped you?

Need to change the transmission filter in '99 chevy suburban 2wd.


If it has over 100,000 miles or so, don't do a complete fluid exchange. Drop the pan, change the filter, and add 2 bottles of Lucas trans. additive. No premises but it's better than a new trans. Worth a try.
