Ok here is some more insights since I was mad/sad writing this post before. I know there was small leak on tranny but I check it lately and it looks good. So I guess low fluid could be not the case. As for maintenance my shop make me realize that only MB fluid can be used so thats what it was used. Beside chceking fluid I didnt do anything else since AT is still big mistery. Other small mechanical staff is OK. (I deal with Harley engine pretty much on my own: raplacing heads, rings - this kind of work, cars engine are too much for me). Back to transmission, I rode on hwy 60-80MPH no problem at all switching gears = fine, flooring gas, normal highway game. I kind of heard something, sounds like something drop from my car but it is BIG GUESS I am not sure since radio was on, there was no jerk or any other misbehavior to make me think something broke inside, smooth ride all the way. From this point I drove another 3-5 miles no problem, then I was slowing down to pass the tollboth and trans went to neutral mode, I was able to drive on reverse but not forward
thats the best I can describe my story. Please feel free to ask more questions so maybe we can figure it out. Will I be able to drive on R if fluid is low BTW? shoot maybe there is no fluid ???? I didnt smell anything weird also, it just happend like that no mechanical indicators at all, I believe there was some whining when I was driving back yesterday but nothing today. Car is paid off - bought it for $3750 year ago when I could still afford my toy. I really count to reach minimum 170K to get certificate from MB it could be hard now
. I LOVE THIS CAR! This is first time in my life that I am not happy to look for new ride.
That will be hard task to make my wife happy in this case since she have all the arguments in her hand now with $3000 argument up front.
Funny part that I dreamt about problem with my car tonight, shoot it is not first time I have prediction dream, maybe I am some kind of psychic it was strange. THIS X-MASS will suck big time for me. I wish all of you oposit, hope santa will say to mechanic - Dude it is just low fluid man. Have my fingers crossed.
Please let me know what you guys think.
