1982 300SD turbo Diesel won't shift to 3rd or 4th gear
We just acquired a used (obviously) 1982 Mercedes Benz. My husband is great at fixing cars, but not so familiar with the workings of the Mercedes.
We bought some Chilton's manuals (One just on the Transmission). We still are usure of what else to check. Automatic trans. won't shift past 2nd gear. All fluids have been replaced, new trans filter and cleaned the valve body.
The book also mentions the Govenor could cause miss shifts?
Thanks...(New Mercedes Diesel owner).
