Mercedes W124 300D Auto no 4th gear

Hello one and all just a quick question before i stick the car on the ramp. I just bought a 1991 300TE which is badged as a 300TD on the tailgate came from a very respected gentleman and was only bought as a stand in while one of my vans was off the road. But i have fallen in love with the car and intend to keep her but i dont think she is going into 4th gear in the auto box. She is the 4 speed version and does not slip on drive does not bang or clunk into any gears does not leak fluid and even though she has 260,000 miles on her is in very good condition and a dream to drive. Even only going into 3rd gear she still returns really good miles per gallon even though our UK prices for fuel are sky high. Any way back to the question is there any adjustment i can undertake to see if its that or is it that i just aint driving her hard enough to get in to 4th gear what speed does 4th gear cut in. Last owner had the gearbox filter and fluid changed about a 18 months ago as part of a major service along with a complete cylinder head overhall and injectors. Any advice would be great. Many thanks.
