I noticed today that my Dad's 90 300sel is getting stuck in 1st or 2nd gear. I understand that this car starts in 2nd gear...well it will start and stay in this gear. The car is turning over 4000rpm at about 35-40mph and will not release up to the next gear. For a moment or so(sometimes)it will switch to next gear and then a moment later downshift again to the 2nd gear...Once today it went to third gear and then the tranny let go as if a clutch was engaged then came back to 2nd gear. Does anyone have any suggestions or thoughts as to what is going on with the car.
