Question What type of transmission do I have??

I have read the manual that came with my 1995 E320 wagon, and it indicates there are three (3) different (auto) transmissions available for the year / model: a 5-speed auto, a 4-speed auto, and a 4-speed auto for the diesel. It shows pictures in the book of the shifter gates / bezel unit (The black thing with the gear indicators on it) Mine is identical to the 4-speed auto for the diesel, but of course mine is the 3.2 DOHC 24-Valve I-6. It doesn't have any buttons or switches on it for winter or standard modes.

What's Up?

Do most E320's have which tranny? How do you tell the trim level of an E320 (Ford has XLT, Eddie Bauer, etc, for higher trim lines)

Is mine a "strippo" MB? What determines whether it has flat door trims or the pleated ones? Do all wagons have the automatic rear gate closing device? What's different on the wagon then the sedan?

Thanks in advance

Yours has the 722.3 4 speed automatic.
The only MB's in the US with the 5 speed (722.5) transmission were the 129 SL and 140 S-Class with the 104 engine, not the 124 chassis.

Yes, the 124 wagons all have the tailgate closing assist.

There were no "trim level" options on the 124's, the were all the same model, however there were different interior options and option packages. You should be able to have a VMI done and determine what yours was ordered with, or go to the MB website and look at the 15 year model overview and you should be able to figure out what was standard and what on your car was special-ordered equipment. They were all pretty much the same though, especially in 1995 (last year).

Hopefull this answers most of your questions. If you have any specific questions just post it here.
