Well from what Ive read on the mercedes forums this was a common problem, that from what I understand was an exspensive fix, either a tranny rebuild or used replacment. I personally would read up in the mecedes forums first before anything else. Link: http://mbworld.org/forums/s-class-w140/356297-s-class-transmission-problem.html

it is $1200 to $1800 repair depending on the fainess of the repair shop. transmission needs to be rebuild. the internal clutches are gone.
