Hey, I am new to all this stuff but I really want to know about, and enjoy my 300se. It's a 1988 and I have had it about 2 years. It has 160k on it and runs like a champ, except the transmission is slipping. It really revs high and shifts very hard if and or when it does shift. I have read the other blogs on this and I understand about the kick-down button. But this seems different. I talked with a merc mechanic and he wants $2800 + to fix it/ replace it. Is their anything esle I can do? I really love this car, but my budget is very tight. I just had surgery to fix my quadracep tendon and have been out of work for almost 2 months. Thanks.
