My new car is clunking :(((

Hello Everyone,

I am so happy to come upon this website. I purchased my 2006 C230 6 months ago at 73k miles. I have put 9k miles on it since. I loved the car at first, but then it started acting up. In C mode it would not go as I would take off at stop signs then eventually catch itself up and would drive normal. I started using S mode from there on out. Last week the check engine light came on and the transmission would clunk as I was in geer driving in about 1st geer. It will not up shift from 1st. My neighbor borrowed it a few months ago and it was doing the same sort of thing by not shifting up in geers so he took it into the dealership and it was low on Transmission fluid. He added 1 quart. This was about 3-4k miles ago. Could it be possible that I need only transmission fluid? Or is it too late for that and I might have waited too long. Please help, I'm desperate

The car is in limp mode and you will need to have the fault codes read out to even get close to finding the problem.
