    do u engage neutral at the lights? (auto box)

    Ive always put autos (the 2 ive driven, one jag one merc) into neutral at red lights. Occasionally when I put it back into drive it kinda jumps in am tries to lurch forward. Is it best to leave it in drive or does it sound like the start of gearbox issues? Tia Lewis

    W124 Gearbox reluctant to engage reverse

    Sorry to only post bad news today! Ive noticed that often when I try and select reverse (especially after having driven for a while, its not as common on startup from cold) that I select reverse and nothing happens. Then if I give it a little dose of throttle, it lurches back sharply. This...

    ETS Pump won't engage

    So, my e320 4matic says "ETS" then "BAS" then "ABS" at startup. Took it in, they wanted $1200 for the ETS pump plus three hours of labor. The ETS pump in key position 2 buzzes quite loudly, like it is stuck. I tried tapping on it with a hammer to free it up but no luck. Any advice is...
