Occasionally, going from "N" to "D" on my 97 E420 feels like a smashing kick in the ass!
With 139,000 miles, overall it shift fairly smooth for its age, not silky smooth as when it only had 50,000 miles but its OK.
Except once in a while, when I'm sitting at a RED light and I put it in "N"
light turns green and I put it back in "D"
Most of the time, nothing out of ordinary,
but about 1% of the times, you get such a HARD shift that honestly without exaggeration, it feels like someone just rear-ended me then it gets moving and all other gears shift just fine.
If I do it again and again it won't happen until the next time when it occurs out of the blue.
The engine idles smooth at normal rpm when gear is in "N"
I've had dealer service trans & Torque conv once at 60,000 miles then again at 90,000
no problems found and they can't reproduce the neck jarring kick in the ass.
Anyone else felt this?
