Customer Question
Hi Mike! I have a problem...
Hi Mike!
I have a problem with the gearbox and/or Torque Convector on my 2004 Mercedes Benz E320 CDI Estate (3.2 Straight 6 Diesel).
Often after start of the engine car is building up a lot of RPMs but not accelerating quick enough. Giving you the feel that is it was a manual gearbox and the you have a disc slipping. Same effect is experienced when car is in reverse gear. It only appears when engine is still cold and only on take off. Once at speed everything seems to work fine. Sometimes if I slow down gear change could be a bit bumpy. But other that that is fine.
Hope you can advise me on this problem before I go for costly Authorized Dealer Garage inspection.
P.M. The car has a high mileage of above 250k.
Regards!
