My 92 300D 2.5 turbo has what seems to be a little extra play in the drivetrain. The feeling is very much like a bad u-joint,however there is no noise at all. I have been told that MB uses some sort of flex disc instead of u-joints. I am taking the car to my mechanic soon and would like to understand the nature of this problem so as to communicate more effectively with him.
Could this "PLAY" also be a problem with the transmission?
The car has 170,000 miles and a questionable service history. I will probably have the trans flushed at the same time. Any thoughts on my situation would be greatly appreciated.
