02 E500 trans bouncy shift feeling, Ideas?

Hi guys. Have an 2003 E500 when the transmission shifts from 1st to second it shifts then is followed by 2-3 little bounces. It does the same thing from 2-3 shift as well. Does not seem to be slipping or making any noise. Took it to the dealer who said the problem was the motor mounts and trans mount at the rear. I changed both front motor mounts and the rear trans mount to no avail. The left front motor mount was completely shot, right side getting there. I could see why they assumed it was a motor mount issue. Dealer said trans had no codes, reset adaptives, and it was operating normal. Could this be a fluid level thing? Conductor plate thing? Help will be very appreciated if anyone has had this problem before.

Doubt very seriously that it is a fluid level thing---sounds like you have issues with two shift solenoids which mount to the conductor plate---however the questionable thing is no faults-----therefore at this point it is a crap shoot as to what to do

conductor plate?

I think I may try the conductor plate cleaning. It's apparently not a hard job. It may be worth a try. Going to get 4-5 quarts of MB trans fluid and a filter gasket set on Monday. give it a cleaning with electrical contact spray. I will measure the amount of fluid the comes out of the pan and dosage with a like amount plus maybe a little spillage. Will retort back and thank you.
