transmission advice

I posted a few days ago about a transmission mystery on a 90 300e 2.6 - since it was my first post, I guess I didn't know to ask specific questions - so I'll try again -

Is is unusual for the transmission to not engage at all and then for it to be running just fine? I've driven it short distances on surface streets and on the highway.

Is there a specific diagnostic for a transmission to see if it's ok? Or does someone have to take it apart and look at it?

I'm trying to determine if the car is safe to drive - the mechanic I had been using for close to six years advised a new transmission, but it seems to be doing fine.

You may do better posting your question in the W124 forum. This is the general forum. If they allow a CLK owner like me post here, they'll let anyone in this section.
