JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: 2001 mercedes E320 144K ***** ***** (not a 4matic)When my car is shifted from P to D the car shifts really hard (like a hard clunk). When I accelerate to drive, the transmission
will not shift out of 1st gear ... The engine and RPMs will rev up but not switch. The check engine light is on (I have not had the codes checked yet). The gear display indicator on the dash during this time will not display any gear ... be it P, R, D or N. If I try to shift the car back into P, it will not shift unless I switch the engine off then shift it up. After the car runs for some time, the gear shift display on the dash will then display the correct gear (P, D, R, N etc.) and the car can be shifted and driven with no problems at all. To my knowledge, nothing has spilled in to the gear shift console as I am the only driver.
