Flaring from 3-4


I searched and found a lot of information about flaring from 2-3 but not much on 3-4. Are the fixes the same? One post mentiones a spring kit that can be installed to fix this problem. Is it the same kit for a 3-4 shift issue? Or a vacuum adjustment?

The car only seems to flare when fully warmed up and is inconsisten on when it will do it, have not been able to pinpoint a patern. Only that is will only do it at full operating temp, whent its cold it acts perfectly normal.

The transmission is only a year old and has Mobile 1 synthetic fluid it in. Think a filter change with non synthetic oil would help?

The car is a 90' 300CE-24, only about 20k miles since a complete rebuild using all MB parts. This is the second transmission since I have owned the car and it kills me to think its going again.

Any input you hvae is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
