2006 S500 Transmission problem. 722.9
I just bought this car and a few days later, all these lights started coming on the dash. When I pushed on the accelerator the rpm gauge would not go down.. I had to put the car in neutral so the rpm would go down. But when I did that the car jolted really hard. Then when I put the car in gear it jolted again.. It felt like I hit something when I changed the gears. I also noticed that area where it tells you what gear it's in.. Looks like the light is off.. I took it to the Benz dealership and they said it was my transmission pump and possibly the torque converter.. I replaced those, but the car was in the same condition.. All of a sudden When we tried to hook up the computer to see what was wrong . We couldn't get a read out at all .. Im think it's the valve body, but I could be wrong.. Does anyone know what it could be? If it is the valve body, I heard that Mercedes won't sell you the part unless you get it installed at the dealership... I'm not trying to pay like 3-4000 there.. Does someone know where I can valve body for cheap and it's for the 722.9 (7gear model).. Any info would be great
