hey all.. right, ive got an issue with my gearbox on my 1998 C250TD sport estate. pulling away from a juncion it made a horrible noise, and jerked forward. it was limped home. i checked the oil dip level, and while the oil level was right, it looked like sludge! i then removed the sump to find it full of filings (and sludge) and the filter seemed to be clogged. (wishful thinking) i hoped that fresh filter and oil would help, and indeed it did, but basically gave me 4th back when i wasnt getting anything but 3rd.. (limped back at 50, at 3200rpm!!) the shifter seems to select drive when set in neutral, and while its not in gear, it doesnt feel completely out of gear, tho it doesnt drive? i know i need a replacement box, im just concerned that even if i replace the box will i still have the underlying problem and end up blowing another? its the 605.960. any help would be greatly apreciated, and any more info you need, photos etc ill be happy to provide
i am new to the forum, but im not new to the C250 family, so have a few tricks up my sleves to share forthwith, mainly to do with the changing of fuel filters... eye for an eye..
any help apreciated..
