Transmission HELP 2005 E500
I have a 2005 E500 that was recently purchased. Vehicle has 62600 miles. Two quick beginning questions: 1) when first purchased the dealer replaced a rear differential seal. Is this normal? 2) Also recently had it in for uncomfortable/jolting shifting and a transmission adaptation was performed, how long should this last?
I still have a jolting feeling when shifting down in to lower gears, most notably between 3,2,1. It is also uncomfortable and seems to rev rather high before shifting up between those gears. Considering the adaptation was just performed (only held for approximately two days) should I be concerned with a deeper and greater underlying problem? I should also end by saying that the shifting problems aren't as dramatic (still evident) once the vehicle is at full temperature. Thanks for your help!
