I have a W168 A170 automatic. Occasionally it loses transmission and "F" is displayed on the dashboard. Last time this happened I was running downhill on a trailing throttle. If the ignition is turned off and on again, transmission is restored and the display goes back to "D".

What is causing this? Can anyone recommend a garage in the Manchester area?

It could possibly be a faulty valve body as this is quite common. £1k for a new one plus fitting roughly
