anybody out there help on a prob with auto gearbox on my 1996 300tdi
seems to have a intermitent slipping problem, every now and then it drives as if there is a clutch slipping very strange, can do it once and then not for fifty miles!
I had a similar problem with an automatic van. It had a leaking o ring on the transmission fluid pump and would lose fluid over time. When it was hot and the level was down on fluid, it would start to slip on me. It would go away if I topped it up again. In the end, I traded the van, because it was a $1400 estimate to drop the tranny, tear it down, replace the 50 cent o ring and put it all back together (without rebuild - just to replace the o ring). There are a couple of transmission fluid conditioners out there that might help. One from Lucas that I tried - helped me a bit, but mine was too far gone by the time I got the idea to try it.
