1986 300e Tranny!!!!!!!!!
I just purchased a Black 1986 300E at the local auction ($250). The car started with no problems however when I tried to move it there was no response. I checked the auto tranny fluid and found that it was missing about 5 qt and the color of the fluid was brown/black. I added 5qt of new tranny fluid and the car moved however only in first gear and reverse. It will not shift to second, third and fourth. Should I bother flushing the gearbox and adding new fluid ($100 localy) or simply find a used gearbox (about $600)? I hope you guys can help me.
