HI all,

recently brought a 2000 E320 cdi,125k miles. My first MB and i am loving it.

Today while accelerating from a junction the car stuck in 2nd gear (auto/tiptronic). I pulled over and restarted hte car and all is fine since.

Is this just a glitch or something about to go bang!

Any ideas welcome.

In that case it could be one of the gearbox sensors, if that is the case you would wish it was the battery!!

Also the possibility of the Gearbox ecu contaminated with oil

We had another good post on this a while back, it applied to this fairly common fault that could affect all cars, I cant find it
