HELP!! Many C280 Issues here

2000 C280. 73,000 MILES. hard shifting transmisson from 2nd to 3rd. Lack of power. The cabin filter makes a poping sound when the car is started with the ac off or when it starts to get going. The breaks also squeak like a mad man and the sterring makes a sound when it is cold out and when turned to the left.

Any input would be great.

2015 GLK350 4Matic. My winter DD
2012 E350 4Matic. Road Trip car
2009 CLK350 Coupe Designo.Kleemann Tune For nice days/DD
2006 CL600. V12.Eurocharged Tune. Enough said
2005 CLK55 AMG Coupe.Kleemann Tune. For the sound and style
2004 CLK320 Cabriolet. 2005+ Interior swap. For the sunny Florida days & beach days

I don't think those are related. What is the sound the steering makes? Is it a groaning sound? Have you inspected the cabin air filter? There could be a lot of leaves and stuff in there. Are the brakes original? I think people here recommend Textar. Some brands squeal more. You might have Pagid in there or something else. I don't know about the trans. Mine would do that under very specific conditions. So I just don't do that and it doesn't do that...

Check your part load adaptation values.

Put some OE pads on it.

Check your P/S fluid level and replace the reservoir if its level is OK.
