Valve body/speed sensors just been replaced on my ML 350 no
I have been unlucky enough to have the widely reported problem with my Mercedes getting stuck in a gear and losing acceleration. This is occurring in quite a lot of 2006 Mercedes from what I have read and requires a valve body/speed sensor replacement, at a cost in excess of $2000. Ouch!
So now, I have just had my car repaired and picked it up from the workshop 2 days ago BUT I'm not entirely happy with the repair.
Has anyone experienced this.....My car doesn't drive as it used to. It seems to be holding the revs much too long before it changes gear. It's as though it was in a "sports" mode, eventhough my car desn't have that function.
I Will be ringing the dealer tomorrow to arrange for them to have another look at it, especially because they admitted that they had some difficulty adjusting the revs/gear changes. They kept my car for an extra 2 days, explaining the reason to be that my car was taking longer to "learn" the gear changes!!! with the new valve body. Seems it still hasn't "learnt" them but they gave the car back to me anyway. Not very good unfortunately.
Does anyone know what the correct revs are for the various gear changes in a 2006 ML350?
