Transmission Glich 2001 E430 24,000 miles
While traveling on the interstate (80 mph) I pushed the accelerator to the floor I did not feel the car kickdown into a passing gear but it gradually gained speed then I noticed the engine light illuminated. After bringing the car to a stop and proceeding it acted like it was trying to start off in a fifth gear it just crept into motion. I stopped the car turned the key off, started the vehicle and it moved through the gears fine. This happened again this same day after pushing the throtle to the floor. I have now driven the vehicle home (165 miles with out incedence on the interstate) it acts OK, full of fluid, no heating problems, drives excellent. If you were to get in the car and drive it down the road you would never know it had this glitch. Has this ever happened to anyone else?
