I am writing for my brother-in-law again. Over the weekend he is having some problems with his 85 16v. Last week his transmisson was working normal with no problems at all. The first problem was when he tried to shift down to 1st gear he couldn't and at that time he notice when he release his cluth pedal it did not return to the up position. He pulled the cluth back up with his foot and started to pump it until it felt like normal. Then shifting became "notchy" it was hard to shift. He also notice a buzzing sound. I took the the car for a drive and also notice a smell. It was like smelling hot brakes.
Thank always for the help,
87 190e 2.3-16
