C240 sticks in 1ST sometimes

My daughters 2001 C240, 85000 hard miles,lol Sticks in first gear about once a week. When she stops and turns the car off then restarts the car it goes back to shifing fine. Does anyone know what it might be?

I'm not sure what it could be, but you will probably get better answers if you post in the cars designated forum.

First things first: You need to have the transmission error codes read. Find a MB specialty shop or a dealer. $125 worth of diagnosis will save you money (and a lot of frustration) in the long run. Has the fluid and filter ever been changed?
