I was just curious if my car was supposed to do this, or if something
is wrong. It doesn't sound normal to me though. The car in question
is a 1982 euro 500SL. If I have the gas pedal floored while the car is
in second gear, when the car reaches redline, it doesn't just shift to
third. The rev-limiter or something engages and it will just hang in
second gear until I let up on the gas a little. Does anyone else's car
do this? I've never driven another SL, so I have no basis for
Thanks, I'll look at both of those. I've had the vacuum modulator (I
think that's what it is called) for the transmission replaced already.
I've never driven another R107, so I didn't know if they all did this
in second gear. I couldn't see why the car would just hang in second
instead of just shifting to third.
