Help with E240 transmission issues

Dear all, I own a 1999 E240, recently when i drive and i go through uneven road surfaces, the transmission moves to the 1st gear abruptly (I think it's the 1st gear b'cos i will have to do a lot of revving before for the car moves a bit). The first mechanic I gave suggested that I change the gear box, I did but the same thing still happened.
Another mechanic suggested I change something he called an AGS which is located in a fuse compartment on the left side of the engine. Still no change
Please if anyone has any suggestions on what could be the problem with my baby, I would be most grateful to have them.
The car is my first car and we've been through a lot together.
Thank you all very much

You have a W210 and we have a dedicated forum. Scroll down to the sedans section and you will see us. Then look in the stickys for similar problems and/or post your question there. Good luck.
