I have an 82 300sd. Im not certain that its getting into 4th gear. At 55 to 65 its runnning 25-3000 rpm which feels a little high. Should it be lower? Gears 2-3 feel like mush going through them so I may be miscounting.

While attempting to find first gear, you should be able to count off all four.
Find a large empty parking lot or deserted stretch of road on Sunday Morning.
Manually shifting through, the console shifter, you should at least be able to hold the car in each gear, except for first, to many variables for kick down not working.

Also, what size tire are you running on your car ?
