Alles.Well, there I was going to the shore for a week,, 92 deg and
an open road what could be better?At 65 mph in second gear and 5k
revs? That can't be good. Sh*t, now what?Exit at next ramp in Avon
and came to rest at Dunkin Donuts, not too shabby, except that the
temp guage crept up to 120 deg.Tea and a bagel and quiet for an hour
and everything was cooler. Still have only 1, 2, R, no 3 or 4.Towed
home and swapped for the rusty trusty 300TD and off to the shore,
again, successfully.My wife said that it was karma payback for
wearing my under draws inside out!Any ideas about transmissive
Fred the puzzled wants to know.

What brand of filter is in the trans?
I'd skip the kickdown switch test unless you know there is a heavy rug over it.
Buy a Mann Transmission filter and a gasket. Change the fluid and
filter. You should be back up and running.
The filter is a weak spot in the 124 AT, and according to the
owner/GURU at Sun Valley, the other brands of filters collapse, and
plug up the fluid flow. That limits you to 1 and 2.
I about lost it, because I thought the whole at had bit the dust.
But before I did too many rash things, i called Sun Valley, and he
diagnosed and prescribed the Mann filter.
Now that I have used up my supply of elring filters from Q, I only
buy Mann. I liked the elring because the filter and gasket come
together. With Mann you have to buy the gasket separately. I've
only had that happen once, and I managed to drive it slowly 20 miles
to the closest line shack, where I conveniently had a 240D and a
300SDL stashed. Drove one of the other cars home and then fixed it
the next weekend.
