Transmission problem 500E

I have a question regarding the transmission in my 500E -92
It feels like there is some sort of play in the transmission somewhere.

It's mostly felt in 4:th gear but also somewhat in the other gears. when I let of the gas COMPLETELY and then quickly push it down again, it is like the axle makes half a turn freely before it "grips" in again.

"R" engages very smoothly under all circumstances.

D however is pretty smooth when the transmission is cold. But when warmed up it engages pretty rough and the car almost takes a little jump forward.

The tranny-fluid was changed at the service a couple of month ago. It got SLIGHTLY better after that but is now back to normal again.

Otherwise the tranny shifts smoothly under normal conditions. 4th can sometimes engage with almost a "donk" in certain (low) speeds though (about the same feel as when I let of the gas completely, and pushes it down again quickly, that I described). Sometimes though I can almost not feel it shifting into 4:th. The "donk" ,when 4:th engages, seems to appear mostly when I quickly let of the gas at a low speed and the tranny then shifs into 4:th.
As mentioned, it's the same thing if I drive in a certain gear, mainly 4th, let of the gas completey, and then quickly pushes it down again.

Anyone know what needs to be done?
