My car also gets this issue be side the cranshaft postion.
Mercedes is truly a piece of expensive junk- costed us an arm and a leg to get many issues fixed..
Do you know of any recalls/warranties for this problem. My C320 is beginning to show some seepage.
transmission not "shifting" correctly; was told it had low transmission fluid from a leak & needed a new control module & possibly damaged wire connector, estimated costs $1200 ($400 parts, $700 labor) :-(
had a 2001 C320 with same trans problem. Cost $1400 for a new module. I sold the car not long after because I was tired of the repair ongoing repair expenses.
