Slipping Transmission

Also posted in diesel discussion, should have put it here, my error

I've read most of the threads in "search" in the famous 2-3 tranny slip, mine just started

95 E300D
150,000 miles
fliuds changed per the book
fluid looks good and is the right capacity
The kit (126-270-44-77) now runs about $9.00 in CA
any further thoughts on this problem?
It goes in Friday, I'll keep you posted....

Did you check the ATF? Mine slips whenever it is a quart low.

The 2-3 kit was installed yesterday....I'll post is a few days with the results. The mech said the trannys are good for 125-150 k then need a rebuild or replacement.

I would like to get in on this too. I can make my 190 "surge" (for lack of a better term) into gear once in awhile, it doesn't slip so much as....O.K. maybe it's slipping. I just don't notice a lapse in forward movement. (denial?)
Keep us posted please!!!!!

mine slips too, but I didn't look at it as a problem since it's because my cooling lines are leaking, will be replaced as soon as I get my catalog and figure out what parts I need to order to fix the leak, and it happens when the tranny is a bit low on atf. Not sure how much mileage on it, but it will probably need a rebuild sooner or later.

if i may, i'd like to ride on this thread as well

though my problem does not involve the 2-3 slipping.

My tranny is slipping in the 3-4th gear range. I have had my auto box overhauled november of last year. I have changed my planetary gearset as the gears where spent after my car stopped moving after making a U-turn and engaging from R to D.

At first it was ok, then recently it started... the shift from 3-4th would require me to ease of my pedal so that it could catch the gear otherwise the engine would race (revs high without actually having the corresponding forwards movement as if you are stepped on the clutch momentarily). This happens only on teh 3rd-4th gear shifting and happens for about 2-3 seconds then the gear catches on. Though I havent checked my ATF level (hopefully this is the cause), what other things should i look at?

I'm afraid to find out if there is a bigger problem as i do not want to get my tranny rebuilt again.
