it sounds like a vacum issue, get a manual or have it serviced n0rt The vacuum issue took me to further findings. Besides improving the vacuum lines, I also got a tip that worked very well: Adjusting the Control Pressure Cable. It is located on top of the valve cover where several other connecting rods are, near the backside of the valve cover where the Mercedes star is. The control pressure cable is the one that is packed into an approx. 3" long, black rubber wrapping. What you do is you pry off the ball socket. Use suitable tools that aren't too rough on the ball socket and head. You might need to twist and crank it quite a bit until it comes apart. Once it's apart, you push the ball socket backwards (in the direction where the cable goes) and then pull it slowly forward until you feel a slight resistance at one point. Don't move it any further. If you miss, repeat as many times as needed until you got that point. Now adjust the control pressure cable with the adjusting screw that is located right behind the cable holder until the ball socket is exactly above the ball head. Attach the ball socket and the ball head in this position. It might be a good idea to note down how many turns you had to adjust the cable so that you could go back to that setting if shifting worsens (in case your vacuum system is way off and the cable setting maybe was done intentionally to compensate). This procedure seems to be appliccable for all MB turbodiesel 1981 to 1984. It improved shifting on my 1983 MB 300SD tremendously, and it is now practically all smooth up and down. Before, I expected the tranny to come apart any time of shifting. I also found an excellent article "Mercedes-Benz Transmission Vacuum Control system 'Tuning'", by Steve Brotherton at www.mercedesshop.com/Wikka/TransVacTune.
need to check transmission fluid level/ or transaxle fluid level
Check Hanbrake, Brake fluid level and Clutch fluid level. It could be any of the three.
it could be your power steering pump. check your fluid level, then also check to see your not leaking any fluid.
Fluid Pressure is evenly distributed at a given level in fluid. Your welcome
Check the fluid level; if ok is there any chance someone could havetopped it off with brake fluid? (You can substitute Dexron transmission fluid but brake fluid is a WHOLE different critter). Or it could just be wearing out.
Could beLow transmission fluid level,Dirty transmission fluid,Bad shift solenoid(s),Transmission mechanical problems,Transmission hydraulic control circuit.Start with checking the fluid level then a fluid flush.
Have you checked the fluid level? Have you changed the filter and fluid as normal maintenance?
usually the brake fluid reservoir is clear and therefore you will see the level of the fluid. if not the lid will have a level indicator.
Could be low level or dirty transmission fluid
Check the fluid level to start with. If level is ok, then the filter could be stopped up, or there could be internal damage.
It could just be that when you push the brakes the fluid level goes below the proper level. add fluid and see if stops.
You can check the transmission fluid level in your 1998 Chevrolet Corvette with the transmission fluid dipstick. The transmission fluid dipstick will have indicating marks as to the level of the transmission fluid.
The transmission could have a bad seal or have too much internal pressure causing the fluid to come from the 93 Suburban vent hole. The Fluid is probably leaking slowly, and that is why the level still shows normal.
The windshield washer fluid level is low.The windshield washer fluid level is low.
No transmission fluid or fluid level is too low. If levels are fine, take to transmission repair shop.
check fluid level
This warning can mean several things. The fluid level could be low or there may be serious electronic and control problems. Check the fluid level and if that does not fix it it will need to be seen by a qualified person
its probably a plugged pressure line. it could also have a low fluid level
Check the transmission fluid level.
check brake fluid level.
You have to check transmission fluid level.
Brake fluid in reservoir below acceptable level.
If it is causing the trans to slip, it could.
Possibilities could include: * transmission fluid level is low * transmission fluid needs to be changed - change the filter, too * transmission could need adjustment - the bands may be slipping Always check the fluid level with the engine at normal operating temperature (like after being driven 10 or 15 miles) and leave it idling in park with the brake set, and the wheels chocked.

fluid pressure increases when you go below sea level fluid pressure decreases when you go above sea level
