Hi all,

Looking for a little advice.

I have a 1999 clk320 a208 (the convertible version of the w208)
5 speed auto box not triptronic

She has done 80k and has a full service history.

owned her now for about 8 months and few minor issues all dealt with but this weekend stuck in slow moving traffic she has developed a real jerk in the transmission.

its between 2nd and 1st I think when in really slow traffic. This is new as I am basically in really slow traffic a lot and its the first time I have felt this.

no issues accelerating hard or coming back down the gears on the brakes. Just when in slow traffic.

I'm suspecting gear box oil needs changing/topping up as its not been done as far as I know. But I have seen post about rear bushes and also linkages?

any Ideas?

Ed

I think you are on the right track. I would get the ATF and filter replaced.

My C55 was the exact same in stop start traffic. Filter and ATF change and now smooth again.
