Please help! My car wont accelerate.

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Please help! My 1984 Mercedes 300d won't accelerate. I have had zero problems with
this before. I stopped at a stop sign, and when I went to accelerate, the car wouldn't go
over 5 mph. I tried turning it off and re-starting, but it still won't accelerate. It doesn't rev
when I do this. SOS.

Definitely sounds like your transmission is in a state of disrepair. That's the first thing I'd have looked at.
