    Default C class gear change issue

    Hi, I have a w204 c220cdi. I recently experienced a problem where the auto box did not want to change up into 4th gear. Sport button on the box did not work and I could not change gears manually. When the car was switched off and restarted, everything was fine again. However, the next day it happened again. Any idea what could cause this.

    Sounds like it might have gone into 'limp mode'. 3rd gear is usually selected and the gearbox does not change up or down.

    How many km you done in the vehicle?

    Usually a good flush and filter replacement of the autobox oil does the trick.

    Otherwise hook up to a diagnostic machine and look for error codes.

    get the agents to do the gearbox fill and flush
    the local shop wont be able to flush out all the fluid
    the computer needs to be put in a certain mode
    and it takes plenty fluid

    if that doesnt work

    get a box out a scrapyard - there is a merc yard in city deep
    they will only be too happy to sell you one
    there is hardly any demand for them so it will also be cheap
