You need to list what year w123, model, auto or stick. then someone can help you a little better.
Maybe fill in your signature and location, that way you don`t have to list it ea time.

there were three HP ratings on the OM616...

1) Not much power
2) Even less power
3) Not nearly enough power!! 240D w/auto

Anyone that thinks a 240D is slow drives too fast.

80 240D Naturally Exasperated, 4-Spd 388k DD 150mph spedo 3:58 Diff

We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics. Funny how that works

Peter Schmid used to be the place for rebuilt transmissions in the Bay Area. I don't know if they still are.

The fellow at Mercedes Werkstatt rebuilt the tranny of my 91 300SE. I sold the car a couple of years later so I can't comment on the longevity of the rebuild. I saw the car on the road a few months ago but I don't know if it's needed tranny work.
