I have a 1985 190E that is in amazing shape. But out of nowhere it will not shift into 3rd gear. I unpluged the passing gear sensor under the fuel pedal that changed nothing. The trottle cable seems to be correct and there are no codes stored . Would the bendix cable out of adjustment cause this to suddenly case a no shift? And if so could someone give me advise on the correct procedure Ive heard it can get tricky. Thank you. :)

@Knightime12 Hoping you got an answer to this - we're all about the CLA here but lots of Mercedes geeks so if you are still having this issue let us know!

@Knightime12 when was the transmission fluid last changed? MB recommended a change every 18,000 miles for that era of cars. If the fluid has not been changed in a while, there will be difficulties shifting up into 3rd or 4th, especially when cold.
