after trans warms up it appears to be slipping. turn off ignition trans starts to operate again

power to the crappy light unit, I have replaced the bulbs, headlights work.

My Mercedes Benz is automatic an it won't shift gears it's stays in first gear an ills up an won't change out the oil an transmission leaked out of it when I had it sitting down for awhile after finding out my alternator went out I replace it an the car starts up jus find fully powered but I can't drive over 20-30 mph because it won't shift gears what could be my problem??

What do I need to do?

When slowing down or at a stop,it blows cool air.

The miles are (2) of them are right around 62,000-65,000K...Need advice thank you.

I want to take my clk430 with me behind my motorhome

ive had to put 2 gall of coolant in it , dosnt overheat but is losing fluid// what can it be

My trans fluid leaks when the car sits for more than a week or 2. Now I drive it more frequently and it's beginning to leak while i'm driving. It seems to be leaking from the top which I was told was a breather or vent valve. What could cause that and what type of fluid can I refill in the meantime?

so my issue is in last summer a/c and thru winter heater was great as well. Well since it has been warming up I no longer use heater but i still feel heat coming thru vents although my heater is off. tried turning on a/c and it is not working. any idea why?

looking into purchasing used mercedes clk 320. Want to know what to look for questions to ask and what to expect in future with maintence and big money replacements should be ready for. 1 I have in mind has 75,000 on it. Thanks in advance

This sounds dumb but how do you remove the top cover on the engine to access the air filters? Also check engine light just came on yesterday my clk is a 1999 just turned 20k miles rarely driven.
