    I hear periodic grinding gear sounds coming from the rear of my 2001 ML430. Any suggestions as to what is wrong?
    The sound coming from the rear of the vehicle sounds like grinding gears. Just started and does not always occur. The sounds are usually sporadic and very brief.

    How do you change the transmission filter

      Transmission oil pan needs to be dropped and drained, The filter sits on the bottom of the hydraulic unit. It's usually secured by a clip. You should also change the filter seal that will be supplied in the kit. Some late model vehicles are designed with a Long Life fluid system which is designed to last the life of the transmission, maintainence free from servicing.

      Many thanks for the ans. I cant remove the dipstick to check the fluid level,so I suspect this model is designed to last the life of the vehicle. Just purchased thid 1991 500 SL and it has only 53,000 miles on the vehicle.

    Sound coming from rear of car when accelerating.
    100,000+ miles, when accelerating on highway hear what sounds like engine noise (transmission noise?) coming from the rear of the car. Car rides nicely but sound makes me think something is wrong. When take foot off accelerator, sound stops.

      You need to explain what's happening a little better. Are you saying that when you try to turn the key that it won't turn? You said "stiff." Explain better.

      Changing the oil would not have anything to do with transmission issues and shifting problems. Need more info from you.

      I'm not a certified mechanic but, I have a lot of experience with Mercedes. In fact, I'm having problems too with one of mine right now. Anyway, regarding your situation, I don't totally understand your question completely but, I will tell you that as far as the transmission shifter being stuck in one gear, there is an electronic box type part that is part of the shifter and it can short out. I screwed mine up by spilling a cup of water down around the shifter where it goes down into the transmission area and it ruined it. Computers and electronics don't like water. (:-)) When it happened to me, I could only get reverse and 3rd gear. However, with as many problems you are having as you mentioned in your question, I'm going to bet that you have a computer problem. The reason I say that is because it can affect all of the things you have mentioned and especially ESP. Check engine light is always an indicator that the computer has been trying to correct a function that is going on. Go see a good mechanic/shop and have them plug in their computer and it will tell the mechanic what is going on......

    Why does trans stop pulling after initial engagement
    vehicle has 186,000 miles. when the vehicle is warm trans will not engage. After the vehicle is allowed to sit for awhile it will move for a few feet and then stop again. Service engine light is on but am unable to scan for a code.
