E320 & 190D
Angry 190D (2.5 Non-Turbo)

Help please!

I have recently purchased a 1993 Mercedes 190D (2.5 Non Turbo) Saloon (Sedan) in ther United Kingdom. It has 131,000 miles on the clock. It has an automatic gearbox. I am happy with the vehicle, but have a couple of concerns.

Firstly, the automatic gearbox is not performing correctly, especially when the engine is cold. When changing from 2nd to 3rd gear, the gearbox pauses the gear change and the revs rise dramtically. This only happens when the car is accelerating 'normally' and can be overcome when the vehicle is rapidly accelerated.

Secondly, I have noticed a vibration when travelling at 60mph or more. The vibration is not felt through the steering wheel, but through the car itself. However, it disappears when I take my foot of the accelerator and 'coast'.

Any help and advice would be much appreciated.

New car with ample mileage?

Sounds like you need some maintenance and probably you'll need to give a mechanic a ride (and a few quid!).

Hang in there .. it's all worth it.
