Mercedes 1998 W210 E240 Auto Gear Selection Problem when cold
\015 Problem - First time of starting the car daily:\015\012\015\012The car is parked on a downward sloping incline and is thus reversed \015\012onto the road. On starting the engine fires up immediately and is fine.\015\012\015\012On selecting the reverse gear the engine stalls or cuts out. This \015\012happens several times before reverse can be successfully selected, \015\012the car is then fine for the rest of the day and evening.\015\012\015\012Selecting reverse successfully is more difficult the colder it is \015\012(+7.5\302\260C or less).\015\012\015\012Also, since this problem started the gear change can sometimes be \015\012felt when previously the gear changing was very smooth\015\012\015\012The car spent an initial morning with an MB specialist (who has MB \015\012diagnostic facilities), no fault could be found and no error codes \015\012logged. It was however thought that the symptoms were indicative \015\012that an Air Mass Meter change would probably fix it \342\200\223 but it didn\342\200\231t.\015\012The MB specialist needed the car when cold - so was booked in \015\012for three days, thus covering two mornings of very cold starts of \015\012around +2.5\302\260C to 0\302\260C. Again no faults could be found or error codes \015\012logged.\015\012\015\012Any ideas of a fix or who/where it can be sorted would be gratefully \015\012received.\015\012Email: [email protected]\015
Change the ATF, AT filter and pan gasket. http://forums.mercedesclub.org.uk/showthread.php?t=45725
Have you checked the transmission fluid if it is low then the transmission will not have enough pressure on your incline, this could also explain your shift feel changing, it could be time for a transmission service, approx €150.00 inc filter and fluid change with a fluid changer not just by draining the pan. wher are you we may know someone in your area.
