Two days ago, acceleration became weak/bad. RPM needle running up during shifting and accelerating slow even with the peddle down. After one or two restarts, improves then back to same situation. Transmission fluid? Shocked to read stick to check fluid is something I need to purchase first. Can I get that in an Auto Zone? Guys, I'm female, 50 years old, and a widow, so be gentle. Also read could be fuel filter and looks easy enough to change.
Good day, long story short.
Last week I bought Mercedes Benz glk350. Vehicle are after car accident. The problem is that the transmission are completely blockt. Dashboard not showing any gear. Shifter also does not respond.
Any idea where is the problem? Many thanks for help
<p class="text-align-center">I have a 2011 Mercedes GLK 350 that I am having transmission problems. Wanted to see if anyone had any idea if my transmission is in fact going bad. Changed the fluid and filter and there were no metal shaving in there, seemed clean. Symptoms were a slight hesitation. Once fluid/filter changed car seemed to be doing good up until about 2 weeks ago. The hesitation came back and my tach is bouncing and every now and then it feels like I am going over rumble strips which it looks like in all the discussions it maybe my torque converter going bad.
2010 Glk 350. A/C blowing hot air intermittent ly. Sometimes A/C works and other times it's just hot air. Diagnostic came back that electrical part on compressor was overheating and so I need to replace compressor. Also told to replace expansion valve, dryer, flush and recharge. Do you agree?
I have a 2010 GLK 350, love the car! 70k miles, got it used, it's had reg maintenance.
Yesterday I pop into the mall, 20 min tops, come out and she is dead. My alarm works, the overhead lights and dash turn on, but that is about it.
I called a tow, but she was stuck in Park, we jumped, twice from the tow truck. No change.
There is no turn over, no noise, no flashing lights, and no signs leading up to the issue.
I found the button under the gear shifter boot to release the car to neutral!! Yay, I got her towed. But now I'm left with a dead car.
I have a low-pitch, soft but very audible noise coming from (I think) the front passenger wheel. It happens at low speed and faster speeds but doesn't get louder or change pitch. It more like an Owl's hoot, not a metallic or grating noise. When I touch the break it stops or if I turn the wheel left or right it also stops. It's intermittent but happening more frequently as time goes by. One shop said it's a wheel bearing but the vehicle only has 59K on it. They did no diagnosis but I did explain the symptoms and gave him my best impression of the noise.
