C280 1999 transmission problem
I was in a big hurry the other day and was coasting at about 40 mph waiting for the traffic light to turn green. When it did turn green, I tromped on the accelerator and the car rev'd up to red line but I coasted through the intersection. It was like I dropped into neutral. I am glad that the car behind me didn't hit me or blow his horn.
If I accelerate normally the car down shifts OK, but I am worried that it might happen again.
I am also having a problem with my air blower inside the car which has been acting erractically and was diagnosed as a vacuum leak.
Could the transmission problem also be vacuum related?
