Makes interesting reading, especially the bit about the gear shifting. I recently sold a 190E and now have a '91 300CE. The transmission is fine, having had regular oil changes and I noticed recently, every time I drive the car off the drive from cold, the engine will wind up to about 5000 RPM before it changes out of first. The 190 never did this, neither does the 500SEL I have, but there again, neither of the others have traction control the 300 has. I am curious to know if the two are connected. After I have driven about 1/2 Km down the road in a straight line, it changes up just fine and I there is no further problem. Is this perhaps normal ?
