Ok, I have a 2002 clk55 with 115000 miles and haven't changed the transmission oil since I got it(52000) because I got different suggestions from different people. One person said don't one said do, so I never did.

Anyways, right now it's pretty cold here in Cali, in the mornings whenever I first start the car everything is normal but when I put it to "REVERSE" and hold the brake the car vibrates and you can feel it, it's like I have a very loud exhaust or something. It doesn't move from left to right and the RPM doesn't change or any of that stuff. It sounds like something within, the mounts seem to be ok and I don't think that would cause the vibration since it doesn't in park or drive. It only does it when it is cold and for the next start it goes away until the car cools down again, and the cycle just basically repeats.

I took it to one mechanic, he couldn't replicate the problem, obviously, cuz the car was warm but he said it might be from the transmission oil pump, so I would like to get your thoughts on this before doing anything. Also, how much do you think it would cost the replace a pump, lets say that is the problem, I'm guessing pretty expensive...
