2001 W210 E55 AMG changed solenoids still not in gear
I have an 01 E55 AMG. 156000 miles on it. Great looking car. As I drove it on the freeway, all of a sudden it seemed like i was in Neutral when i was in drive. Pulled over, shift into Reverse and into Drive, still nothing. I had my buddy tow it to my house. He used his tow truck, back wheels on the ground front wheels up in the air in Neutral. Heard that was a bad move. Few days later, i had another guy look at the transmission, he said my tranny had metal coming out so I need another. 700 bucks later, I bought a used tranny from a trusted scrap yard that had tested it. My newest mechanic says all I need is to change the solenoids so he did that. Get everything in, finally get the scanner to erase all the codes, but still, I go into gear and the car still not moving. I cleaned up my TCP thoroughly. All the connectors all the wires. Still not driving this car. Some body please give me some suggestions besides telling me I need new mechanics and tow drivers!
