    How many gears does my car have?and at what speed does the last one kick in?
    I count three gears from the moment of take off until I reach 65-70 mph does it have a fourth gear other than passing gear?

      The W124 has a 4-speed automatic. Here is the problem, your concern is not DIY, you have to bring it to a mechanic. You will be lucky if all you need to do is replace oil and filter...anything more than that, you need a pro

    The locks in the back do not operate with remote
    When the remote is used to open the car, the back locks do not open. They can be manually operated (for opening & closing) but will not respond to the remote or central locking system

      Does it make a popping noise when you hit the button? It can be that the the remote switch is broken

    When you put in in reverse or in drive it jerks real hard.ALSO IT WONT SHIFT UP OUT OF FIRST GEAR

      CHeck the transmission and engine mounts if broken/damaged and inspect the vacuum modulator if defective. You will need a transmission professional for this problem,
    • ASE MASTER MECHANIC TEXAS
      Your inside main gear assembly has most likely locked up to the slip-out lock up converter module.
      I bet the car has over 80,000 miles on it. has it been drove hard or like a baby,, honest answer please.
      Now, you can have the pan removed, and see if you have lots of metal shavings, of all kinds of metal.
      I f you do, you need to pull the filter and take a good look and smell of it. Don't be scared, it is just like a ford or chevy.
      you can smell of it too and tell if it is burnt up if it is black and stinks bad. Should be red and smell like crisco kinda.
      will it go into second and still go down the road, or not at all???????????

      Did you already try to diagnose your vehicle with a scan to determine if the fault isn’t one of your electrical controls or sensors? If your vehicle’s problem is already resolved how did you do it?

    Vibration when turning right over 30mph and car jerk
    feel a vibration when the road bears to the right at speeds over 30mph. driving the car pulls slightly to the left as well. i have a 2004 clk320 with tiptronic and as of late when the car just drifts at 15mph and i touch the gas or release that it starts to jerk ...

      "driving the car pulls slightly to the left as well" - first impression is an alignment issue
      "car just drifts at 15mph and i touch the gas or release that it starts to jerk and i feel the transmission sort of rattle." - first impression is busted tranny support

      For the vibration concern, it MAYBE a wheel bearing issue, jack your car up and wiggle it, if it moves top to bottom and side to side then the wheel bearing is busted.

      Also check your axles for any rips or leaks...

    ATF leak on rhs of vehicle; fluid pools when car sits for a few days. Coming from above pan gasket (new and not leaking)
     
    • Nissan Technical Advisor
      You have to locate the source of the leak, remember low fluid in operating gears produce a problem, check if the power steering fluid if low, and the transmission fluid also. ATF can leak from the poser steering pump and hoses, also from transmission pan when gasket fails, so check it out and send it to shop for repair before major damage occurs.

      Have you checked the trans fluid level? if level is good, nex thing you have to do check shift fuse in fuse panel, now, if fuse good, the trans screen may need replacement or it can be that the fluid could be bad and needs drained and replaced. Lastly, if none of those you need a transmission repair.
