I have a 1994 C220 (103K) and noticed today
when I floor the car, the transmission doesn't kick down and to a lower gear and
give you that acceleration you expect..instead it just keeps plodding along in the same gear (but a little faster).
Right now my 1985 190E 2.3 (my car) is peppier than the C220.
Anything to check? control cables? vacuum?
Kickdown relay? Will changing transmission fluid help? It's overdue anyways. Do I need to change the filter at the same time -- my MBZ tech says not since it's a strainer. Also...I assume it takes Dexron III fluid?
