Hey guys! Regarding 1985 Mercedes 380SE
Transmission shift is sluggish between 2nd and 3rd gears
(when cold it shifts perfectly). Any suggestions?
Is it a valve body issue, vaccuum, or is it linkage and
how do I trouble shoot?

Also, the power stearing pump return hose from rack to
power steering appears to have a kink. Is this hose
preformed or just too long causing the kink?
