Reminded of tranny problem...

Talking about my Dad's 190E 2.6 on another thread reminded me to do a search for "slow reverse engagement."

I found some inconsistent information regarding causes.

Dad's 190E is a little sluggish engaging reverse, and I slid under it to have a look. No leaks. Fluid looks good.

Any thoughts? Reverse clutch pack? Possible valve body problem? Car has 300K on 'er now, maybe she's just getting a little long in the tooth...

I cant remember exactly, but if it takes a while for it to engage in reverse, its a sign that the tranny is going out OR going bad reverse clutch

if you have no forward gears but have reverse then its B2 piston. 300K is a long time my tranny only lasted 260K. The home mechanic, well at least MOST home mechanics, all they can do is change the filter and the fluid and cross fingers.

FWIW dept.

I recently purchased a beautifful 300cd with no reverse. Actually, you could feel a little reverse when warmed up.

After conferring with this great forum, I found that the reverse band adjustment bolt was LOOSE! and had backed out.
Snugged it up, and SHAZZAM! Perfect!
