MB C230 transmission down shift clunk noise
97 C230. 140K miles. Cluck shift cluck sound sometimes, for example, when accelerate at up hill incline going up on ramp into freeway.
Dealer report said: found fault in shift value assembly, rough shift only on 3 to 2 downshift. Found transmission fluid dark. Do not understand this -> "Performed short test, found stored codes for selector lever is implausible, communication with engine module, and reverse gear/park lock solenoid fault." Normally would recommend a valve body, but mileage is high. Not confident this will fix the shift issue without causing clutches to slip. Dealer said : best to replace entire transmission.
But for now, can still drive without much problem.
Any one with similar problem and how did you deal with it?
