1999 E300DT Transmission Trouble
The transmission in my 1999 E300DT 63000 miles is not locking up when the weather is cold, 30F or lower, and the car is cold. Upon acceleration from a dead stop, easy or hard, the motor revs and the transmission slips. At some point, 2 to 10 seconds, the transmission slams into action or gradually engages and away we go. Problem is only noted from a dead stop and when the car and air is cold. Once the car is warmed up no further problems are noted.
The last problem I posted cost 6 dollars to fix after I was armed with your knowledge. Prior to that the dealer wanted 500 dollars to fix the tail light. Thank you so much for your help.
