1998 c230 Transmission / Rough changes

I am a fairly new Mercedes owner, and have a little problem with the transmission. It works perfectly fine at low speeds, and accelerating slowly. It has a hard time upshifting when I accelerate faster

For example, when i get on the highway and floor it, the car will not go into gear, it will rev the engine for a bit, then shift really roughly . Sometimes it helps when I let off the gas, as the car shifts better.

I have not done a transmission flush yet, but would that fix this problem or is it something else? Also, sometimes there is a little bit of a rattling noise when I put the car in R or D, but the noise goes away when its in neutral.

Thanks for your help.
