That would be on the 1997 & later E320's with the 722.6 transmission.

Best course of action would be to find out why the check engine light is on, as this definitely can't be considered "normal". The check engine light can be coming on due to a fault in the transmission, I guess I'd reserve comment on the shift until I knew why the check engine light is on.
