Cars been sitting up for about 8 months and won't shift out of first

Asked by Nov 13, 2015 at 12:26 AM about the 2001 Mercedes-Benz E-Class

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer

34,975

I would try having the car idle for an extended period of time to fully warm up and then drive it slowly for a few miles in hopes that the trans starts working. I would also change the fluid and filter.
