2004 C240 feels like it "skips" into gear
I have an automatic 2004 C240 with 116,000 miles on it. I just experienced a feeling like it skipped into gear at around 30 miles an hour while accelerating and slowing down. Right after it skips or slides into gear, it vibrates for about 10 seconds or so. The vibration seems to be in the front/center of the car and feels like I am driving over grooves on the shoulder of a highway. I have never experienced this before. About 3 weeks ago, my check engine light came on and the car turned over but did not start right away. It started after the 3rd time and I have not experienced this again. I am not sure if this is related, but figured it is worth mentioning just inc ase. Any input as to what the issue may be is greatly appreciated.
