W124 E220 - Transmission
Hi there.
Greetings. I own a E220 1995 (W124 Masterpiece) with auto transmission with 4 speed.

About few weeks ago, the transmission won't upshift, meaning it stuck in either 2nd or 3rd gear. However, the car can drive around just like normal but you can't go above 40kmh. This is real pain as my RPM is high and fuel consumption is all time high. Ohh, the reverse gear works just fine...

I searched the internet and they call this symptom "drive home mode". Not sure why and what is the problem causing it. I took it amateur mechanics and they all suggest to replace the transmission.

Just a note, I bought this car last year and not many Merc mechanic that I know of around here. I have done a lot of DIY stuff and checks/trials on my own but nothing works..

Any help/advice from owners faced such problem would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance..

Mabel

Hi Plutonium,

Limp mode means the car will not shift above second gear so if it shifts normally then she is out of limp mode.The best way forward is to get to the mechanic who has the diagnostic test equipment, then clear the fault codes and as long as nothing is seriously wrong limp mode problem will go away.

Another way is via disconnecting the battery does as it sometimes work. And if there is no Limp mode light, usually the check engine will remain lit and the car is locked in second gear.

My advice is to take your car to any of the mechanic listed in the directory. Most members here prefer to bring their W124 to City Cycle at Puchong. Hereís the review of the workshops.

City Cycles

City Cycle Service Centre is run by Ah Tee & Ah Beng. Contact No. 013-3607613, 012-3137277, 03-7785 0727. They are located at No. 53 Jalan 9/152 Taman Perindustrian OUG, Batu 6, Jalan Puchong 58200 Kuala Lumpur

If your transmission is stuck in limp mode, DONíT PANIC. The majority of the time, the problem is not as grave as you may think. Please also read this article so that you fully understand what you are up to.

All the best!

Dear Plutonium,
as what Bro Mabel said...
an additional advise,your gear problem might be from a dirty ATF oil.When is the last time you service or change the ATF oil?Get your auto gear service/flushing if it is not done by you or by previous owner.This is cheaper solution than stripping down the gear box.

Re: W124 E220 - Transmission
Not sure if it will be of any help but I had a problem in my masterpiece last year when the gear refused to upshift. However, mine was slightly different as it would upshift, but only at a ridiculously high rpm (6000+). I went to the workshop once and I'm not exactly sure what they did but I know they topped up transmission fluid and checked the gearbox. This made it run ok. But that lasted only for a while. I eventually had to change the transmission to a refurbished one. Now all good but still have slight flaring at 2-3rd gear change.

W124 gear speed is known for its robust and reliable.Some called it "bullet proof" gear speed due to its durability.If we keep a good maintainance and follow the service schedule,it will last for a long time.Dirty atf,dirty atf filter oil or insufficient amount of atf can lead to gear problem like delay shift or didnt shift at all.The worse ,you will face burning clutch disc or other internal damage .

Both W124 and W201 Gear box has been rebuild and yes I agree with Bad it's bullet proof.

Have done anything yet with My W140 and W202..So far so good!
