I had a shifting problem similiar with my 86 560sl. It would only shift to 4th if I did the nuetral thing or it would shift to 4th automatically when I got above 65 mph. I had someone tell me that 90% of the time it is caused by kickdown switch or "b(brake)" switch. I isolated it and mine was the "b" switch. The "b" switch is on the right side of the shift console. It is for manually shifting into 1st gear. I changed the switch($17) but you can isolate by unhooking switch and driving. Good Luck Rob Thomas
