1998 C230 Shift Problems

I have a 98 C230 that a elderly lady used to own so she did keep good care of it. It shifts out of park to Drive or Reverse very ROUGH and HARD where it jerks. After a couple of shifting it will stop a little. There is no error codes on my dash. However it will not shift out of the gear it starts in. Do you think it could be my transmission fluid or what? I just don't want to spend 1200 dollars on something that could of been less than $200-0 you know? Please any ideas?

Check transmission fluid level and look at the condition. It should be reddish and not have a burned smell.
