Thanks for your reply, could you elaborate a bit more on that, I'm not sure if i understand what u r saying. when I select Any of R, D, 3 and 2 all engage and the car drives but does not shift from 2nd gear which is the starting gear.

Not too sure myself about MB wording there...

I guess it means that 2nd doesn't engage - which you say yours does. OK, how about this one?


Upshifts only in upper speed range.


1. Check control pressure cable, adjust if neccessary.
2. Remove solenoid valve and check needle valve for dirt and ease of movement.
3. Check governor pressure, clean or replace the centrifugal governor in the event of variations.
4. Check control pressure regulating valve for ease of movement.

btw, I'm just reading the WIS. I'm not a transmission expert!

I'm going to do those checks. the weird thing is that it engages in all selector positions but as i start driving it doesn't upshift. that's why i still have hopes for a not so serious problem. I don't know how these trannys behave when they are kaputs so I can't compare to mine. i drove it for 10k to get to the shop always in 2nd (slowly) without incident.
