w208 clk 320 rpm go up but car does not move. does not shift on time.

hi. i have a problem with my rpm. as i accelerate , sometimes the rpm go up and the car drives fine, but at times as i press the rpm go really high as if i floor the pedal, but the car does not move at all. i noticed the the gears shift normally around 2500 rpm, but lately the rpm go up all the way to 3500 and the car sounds as if it can shift.what should i do?

youl get alot more response if you put it in the right thread, but i just had similar problems..i changed out the shifter assembley..there is a computer (if you want you couldd change just that) and they tend to go bad even if you get a tiny bit of moisture in there...i did the job at home, no need for dealership..check out the w208,w210 forums..alots of info on there, good luck
