I am experiencing slipping between 2rd and 3rd gears with my 1983 380SL (140k miles). What's more, this occurs only when the transmission is cold. This problem appeared some time after I changed the trans fluid and filter last summer. Since I recently acquired the car, I suspect this was the first fluid change in some time. I wonder if this a forecast of expensive repairs to come? Should I perhaps change trans oil, say, every year to ensure perhaps sticky values & pistons in transmission receive the benefit of fresh oil?
