Post 1998 ML 320, Transmission/Speedo issues


it's a 98 ML320 with 170K KM's.

this is the problem...

1. the speedo needle has dropped to the bottom in the middle (Doesn't
work). All other needles work.

2. Shifting gears makes sort of a clicking noise (to all spots).

3. Acceleration is poor on either 4 or D and it's a little better on 4.
- When i rev up on the gas so much the speedo jerks around left and
right and settles back down.

Could i have a blown tranny? or is it the speed sensors or something else?

thank you

1. your cluster is bad if its not within the speedo numbers
2. the clicking is a missing shifter bushing either front or rear on the shift linkage
3. it sound like you might need the updated larger fuel filter or a mass air flow meter
