Car reverse but wont accelerate..Help please..
Hello all. I have a 1994 Mercedes Benz C220. It was a gift to me on my birthday. After a few months of driving it, my car won't accelerate no more but revs and if I tap on the gas petal it moves forward by a bit. The car still reverse. When the issue started on driving it on D gear because it won't accelerate, and I was at work so I had to drive it on gear 1, 2 and 3 to get home and it was fine. Then one day the car shut off on me while stopping at a stop sign. Got it towed to my house. Got it started again...but it wont accelerate in any gears besides on reverse. As people instructed me of the problems (supposedly) I had my transmission fluid flushed and replaced/filled, new fuel pump, new spark plugs, oil changed. Problem was car said unleaded gas only and I was told that cheap gas could be pumped in there and the owner before me been doing it for 2 years. So i have been using cheap gas....Radiator has a small drips of leak and looks like there's some black residue in the radiator tank. There were 2 times when the engine shakes while driving....gas petal is 1 inch off from the floor...I was told by car shops I need a new transmission which I don't believe...there are other ways around in fixing this...someone, anyone or everyone...please guide me on bringing this car a live again....I don't make much money and new transmission cost $2,500 as I was told...I know there's still hope...please help me..thank you and god bless you all.
Please guide me to what needs to be replaced, fixed..etc..I don't have enough money to pay car repair shops. I want to fix this on my own..also when I flushed the transmission fluid, it looked fine and didnt smell bad..also on the dip stick, it says 30 - F - 90.Since I poured in new transmission fluid, does the F means "Full and it's at the correct level?... Thanks all for the help.
