82' Euro 240D 84' 300D 01' SLK320 6 Speed Sport!
So I have been driving my 84' 300D for the last week and a half finding all the bugs and dealing with them accordingly. I have only been pulled over once for having a headlight out, but that was because of a bad fuse box terminal connection. So now I have noticed something about the transmission, that is bothersome to me..(I know big suprise hugh?) It shifts through all the gears, which is good and it has that expected hard second shift, but when running it up a mountain pass this morning I noticed something else..When it kicks down to a lower gear, or I drop it down to "S" for a lower gear it seems like it is riding between two gears and cannot make up its mind. It almost gives a struggling/hesitant feeling and the RPMS are not going up. Its almost like the feeling that I am flooding or starving the engine of fuel. I would like to check some more of the vacuum valves for shifting, but I am wondering if its a fuel problem. I have tried to accelerate while going down hills or in the straights and it reaches a shaky point (same as up hill earlier) in the engine when I stomp on the gas pedal too much...hmmm??
