I have several (about 15) service manuals for Mercedes-Benz back to the 80's. I hate to toss then, anyone interested in paying shipping to rec. them ?

Doh, either much older or much newer than my cars.
Go to the classic cars forum, and make an offer there...I know some old diesel heads pop in now and then.

If anyone has a source for online car manuals, please leave a comment at the Online Repair Manuals guide. Thanks!

#10 of 18 Thumping Noise when shifting
Nov 15, 2007 (1:34 am)
I new to this site but really hoping to get some useful information. I have a 1989 Mercedes 300E that is really working my nerve lately . I'm having several issues with it but I'll start with the thumpiing noise the car makes when it goes from 2nd to 3rd gear and vice versa.
I've been having to monitor the trans fluid because I'd been filling that every week or so. When I took it to the trans shop the mechanic put the car up on the rack and told me the reason the car was using so much fluid was because there was a leak around the modulator and the governor.
Could the noise be related to the leaks?
Could the leaks be associated with loose bolts/gaskets?
And would adjusting my kickdown cable make any difference?
