1997 Mercedes SL 320 transmission

Asked by Apr 12, 2016 at 05:58 PM

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Our Mercedes has been garaged for a few
months without driving or drafting up. We
couldn't keep battery charged, but once
battery charged we drove it 7 miles to our
mechanic and car never would shift past
1st gear.  We've never had transmission
problems. We didn't let it warm up before
we headed out.  Any suggestions or
comments?

    I over filled the transmission and drained it and now it won't move. The torque converter does not have a drain plug.
