ML 270CDI Transmission problems
I have a 2000mdl ML 270cdi with 100,000 klms on the clock.
The engine is free reving between gear change 3 and 4 and the car has gone into limp home mode a couple of times (sticks in 2nd gear) but it will come out of limp mode when i turn the car off and restart it which seems odd, as i thought if there was a problem with the transmission it should stay in limp mode untill problem is fixed.
Took the car to the dealer and they did the dianostic test and they cant find a problem, they said it could be 100s of things but dont know what it is,They also checked the tansmission fluid and that was fine. they sugested pulling the tranny apart to see if they can find the problem (sounds expensive)
Has anyone else had similar problems with a ML and what was the problem?
hope someone has the answers,
