E280 Estate W124 1994 Gearbox Issue

Hi everyone,

Im kinda new to the forum and need some help from you guys.

I have 94 E280 W124 Estate - recently I've issues with the gearbox such that it would never kickdown properly, and then as I'm coming to a stop, the gearbox shunts into a lower gear.

I've had the gearbox ECU replaced and checked the oil, it is somewhat better, but does not kickdown correctly when approaching a roundabout say, I pull away but there is no power until I really press the accelerator hard.

Any help would be greatly received.

Thanks

Kickdown cable checked?

Could be a modulator valve problem/adjustment. That's where I'd start.

Thanks for the responses

I've checked the kickdown cable and made slight adjustments, but this did not work.

Where is the modulator valve?

Regards

On the side of the transmission.
