1985 380SL hard downshift.....
Yay! For once it's not my car with an issue! Yay![:D]
Hello all. My friend's 1985 380SL has a hard downshift when he lets off the throttle and is coasting to a stop. The car has had the transmission fluid and filter changed and runs great. Could this be something related to the shift modulator on the transmission? If so, what would be the best way to adjust it?
He says that it shifts fine during acceleration, it's just during the slow down that it happens. Thanks for any input!
