C230 2006 Sport: Trany Question!
First forgive me for the ignorance on the topic, i tried to search and find out any info, but i did not get lucky on the topic, so here it is.
1) When i drive on S (mode) and I use the gear box to drive, the shifting goes well up to 6th gear. If there is a red light ahead and i am forced to slow down, even to stop, the gear box never goes to 1 unless i move it to 1st gear. And when i start accelerating the car acts as it is in D and shift itself up to the gear that was last time, and then sits at that gear unless you upshift or downshift. Is this the expected result or am i missing something here.
If you are on 5th and you stop the Gear Display still shows 5th, never goes to 1st
If you were driving on 5th gear and suddenly a red light ahead and you arrive on a dead stop, gear display still shows 5th, you start accelerating again, the shifting occurs on its own up to 5th then it sits there unless you move it.
2) Just took the car to the shop today and got the AC Serviced trying to get rid of the smell coming from the AC, old musty smell. It cost me 500 Dollars, and i was wondering if this is the expected amount for that kind of service.
3) When i use the gear box to drive, and if i am on the 5th gear and driving on 3K RPM if i hit the shifter to the left to downshift, to go to 4th gear, i feel a kick from the transmission (if feels like the trany has a hiccup and then u see the rpm rave to catchup with the speed of the car). Anyone has any ideas if this may be an issue, or is it normal?
4) While driving on the 4th gear and the RPM's are at about 4K if you remove your foot from the gas pedal and let the car cruise on its own, you hear a sound like you hear when you drive on reverse and fast. (Hope u get what i mean), It only occurs when you pull the foot off the gas on 4th gear, but not when u accelerate.
Thank you in Advance.
If this is on the wrong forum, please REMOVE. Sorry!
