Hello dear customer, thanks for your reply.
First I would like to know a little more about your vehicle I would like to know if you have already replaced the transmission oil and if you have done maintenance to the fuel system and the air intake system.

Dear Customer, You have all the symptoms of a lack of maintenance in the transmission, given the mileage you should perform maintenance to it. You have to replaced the transmission oil and its filter, this is the first thing you are going to do. I am sure that here you will find the defect that you have. As a reminder once you have done the job you must reset the vehicle factory data with a diagnostic equipment with the Mercedes software. You do not necessarily go to the dealership. Almost any garage today has multiple brand scanners. That own the software of different brands including Mercedes.
As a final recommendation I can tell you that it is good to perform a maintenance to the fuel system and the air intake system. A good cleaning to both system is a good idea.Have you understood dear customer?
