Hard Gear Shifting from 1st to 2nd
I am new to the forum. I heard about the forum from my friend and its been very helpfull in my car buy.
I own a mercedes c 200 estate, elegance , manual. It has done 83k miles and i am happy with it except for the gear shift.
The main issue is its very hard to shift from 1st to 2nd . The engines goes out of breath quickly in 1st gear and pushing it to second is tight and also the vehicle jerks when i release the clutch. the problem completely goes away from 3rd gear onwards. Its butter smooth and no jerks from 3rd to 6th gear. The issue is only between 1st and 2nd gears.. Also if i accelerate slowly from 1st to 2nd the issue in manageable. .
Its becoming a pain to drive this from traffic lights as i cant accelarate hard due to this difficult gear shift and jerk and hence am forced to move slowly leading to honks from the cars behind...
can anyone advice what could be a problem. Could it be low transmission oil or something?
