Cool Hi all

3 year MB owner of a 1986 190D. I just sold it wth 325,000 miles on it. I needed to put too much money in it to keep it running.

I found a 1996 E320 with 197,000 miles on it, but it looks almost brand new. The car rides really nice, well maintained and is clean.

I did some reading and found some owners were getting 23-30 MPG. So far I'm getting 23 to 27. Anyone else care to comment?

I have one other transmission issue, when the engine is cold, the 1st shift into 2nd gear doesn't occur until 3100 RPM. Not good for the engine. Once it gets that out of the way, it will shift fine but slightly firm. Anyone have any ideas why this may be happening?

One person told me the kick down cable.
