240d transmission questions
I just bought a 78 240d and brought it home. During the drive I noticed a few things. It is an automatic, and when i take it from park to reverse or drive, if kicks like a mule. Also, gradual speed shifts seem to make the transmission slip, while hard acceleration shift aren't all that bad.
When I got home I checked some fluid levels and the oil is low, so I'm going to change it and the transmission fluid level is really high.
Would that cause this behavior? I'm thinking about picking up a transmission filter and just draining the thing to start fresh. Any ideas?
