I got it back today.... now it shifts hard, to where it squeaks the tires as it shifts and has the same problem different day... will not get past the 55mph mark. I gave the guy an extra 220 dollars too, and i have run out of options. I am seriously thinking about junking the car or selling it for parts if i cant get this fixed. He swears up and down it is a engine problem. I don't know what to do anymore. I am thinking of taking it to a dealership near houston to see if they have what it takes to at least diagnose the problem as a transmission problem. I checked the muffler at a muffler shop and got a 2nd opinion on the engine... they said the engine was fine and the muffler was working fine.

Could it be an aftermarket fuel pump that doesn't reach the psi required?

I think the fuel pump is original to the vehicle.. where would it be located if I needed to buy a replacement? I thought it was all mechanical in the older vehicles... if it is electric then maybe it does need to be r/r ed.

Mine is easily visible by the gas tank, from under the car. I don't know about yours but if you haven't checked it out, I wouldn't assume its original...especially a car this old.

I am taking my car to helmut holder in houston to get it squared away. I heard that he can fix the older mercedes cars in his sleep. Just talked to him on the phone... he said he would charge me just 50 dollars to look at it. Cool guy. Will keep you posted.

sounds great.

just out of curiosity, have you tried leaving it in first and seeing if it would rev up?

Its an automatic transmission. I can't leave it in first... unless you mean the low gears, which i have and yes it does rev up. I got to meet Helmut today, a really nice guy. It felt right leaving my car with him. He said he would look at it tomorrow.

This a diesel no electric fuel pump here, just a helluva reliable lift pump.

SO what transmission does this car has now?

When your going 55mph does the engine sound like its hit the governer?

He supposedly put the original transmission back in. the 722.108. I dont trust this guy any farther than i could throw him though. When im going 55, its just smooth and consistent... it whines a little but and is in the higher rpm of the gear but not enough where it sounds like a problem you know? Like it is meant to do that. Called Helmut today, said he would fix it where it is in original condition. A really nice guy. He tinkered with it today and fixed some cosmetic things and said he would do more tomorrow.

Im sorry you have had to go through all this but dont give up yet you'll love the car once its running correctly. W115's are really nice drivers, I use mine as a daily driver and love it.

It sounds like Helmut knows what he is doing so im sure he'll correct whatever the first mechanic screwed up. Keep us posted.
