Charles, hate to say this but this type of problem is usualy related to the 4th gear clutch(k-2) pack wearing out. There a 2 teflon seals where the fluid is supplied to this clutch pack & they fail sometimes. There is an accumulator in the valve body that can fail & cause this problem also. There is a service bulletin on this subject. I WOULD always try to service the trans first & get a MB trans tech to drive car!!
