RE: 1992 300SE Transmission Problem
I have a 1992 300 SE that I just bought from an unscrupulous E-Bayer only to find that the the reverse is nearly shot.
I brought it to a Mercedes dealer for a check-up, who advised that the radiator was corroded, and oil from the radiator was leaking into my transmission coolant. This caused the reverse clutch packs to deteriorate and will ultimatly deteriorate all the clutch paks.
They recommended that I install a new radiator, new coolant hoses, a rebuilt transmission and a torque convertor. All this for the tidy sum of about $6,000.
I'm currently thinking of buying all the parts from the Adsit Company and having a knowledgeable Mercedes mechanic install them for a fraction of that estimate.
Any other thoughts or precautions?
