Redlines into 1st gear when I step on it???

My 1992 600SL goes into first gear and redlines when I step on it hard at a speed where it should not be going into low gear. It then redlines and the engine cuts out. Someone told me that my fuel pump is going. I can't see how this is possible. Not to mention that my car has only 36,000 kms on it.

Does anyone have any ideas? Should I have a transmission shop look at it or a mechanical shop?
