    make sure you check you transmission.. i have a CLK500 with 30k miles and it would go into gear and just rev. the 7speed tranny up and through 2008 or so has a bad seal and the torque converter spins so fast it melts to the seal and blows the pumps etc. take it in to be looked at before you cause more damage.

    you can also check the transmission fluid
    if there is not enough transmission fluid or if the fluid is old then that will defect the shifting gears
