harsh 4-3 part throttle downshifts
I just spent several hours looking at the archives but was not able to find a well explained cure to my problem. My car is a 95 E320 that exhibits very harsh 4-3 shifts at slow speeds under part throttle applications.
For example if your slowing down to turn, say in the 25-40mph range and just accelerate moderately it will slam into 3rd gear. This happens when hot and I have no information on how to adjust anything but the kick-down cable, of which I shortened up quite a bit with no help.
Just FYI, I run Amsoil synthetic ATF in it if anyone thinks that might be contributing to the problem.
