I have thought of something else. On my 83 300D 181K miles how long if any should it take to go into reverse, mine takes about 2 to 3 seconds goig into drive is great, no hesitation at all. should I be worried or is it just age. Im so glad I found this web site!!

Going into reverse there is a seperate clutch pack that is for reverse only, some wear on these clutches can cause delayed engaugement. 2-3 seconds isn't that bad on cold engine.

Yea it usally gets better after warm up. Is there additive or service that I can use or do to help insure continued good service. I had this car about a year and my wife loves it so I want to keep it running and shifting well.
