I have recently bought a E320 1996 it has 93000 Miles. My question is, is it
normal for example in the morning or from a cold start that the gear change
takes a while. As I pull away the engine seems to get to about 2500 3000 rpm
before it changes gear. I have been told because it is a big engine it
probably needs to warm up, because once the engine is warm it changes gear
very smoothly without having to get to high revs. It only does it the one
time starting from a cold start.
I hope that makes sense

That's normal behavoiur. If you don't want it, unplug on of the the
magnetic valves on the left side. Just the power, not the vacuum hose.
One valve is for the coldstart gear change, the other one is for the E/S

Thanks for your replies. I am glad that it is supposed to do this, I thought
I had a gear box problem. Although I must admit it does sound like I'm a boy
racer in the morning who does not know when to change gear :>)
You mentioned that it could be turned off, is there any danger in doing this
to the engine, would it make the gear changing smoother?
