The 94 E320 I picked up for my wife to drive all of a sudden doesn't want to shift past 2nd. From a stand still it shift from 1st to 2nd okay, but it doesn't want to get into 3rd.
Any ideas?
I checked the oil level - its good.
color and smell it good too.
Shift into reverse no problem no delay, the same when its put into "D"

It's a 94, it starts in 1st.
I'll take it to the tranny shop to get a quote first. Might just be a new project car............. I hear a manual transmission calling it's name.

No B2 piston goes bad and you start losing gears 1 at a time. But he is right unless you put it in first it doesnt start in first. Mercedes comfort issue.
