2001 S400CDI - when I drive off after the car has been

2001 S400CDI - when I drive off after the car has been stationary for a couple of hours the car does not shift correctly. It starts off in 1st, shifts into 2nd and 3rd at about 2000rpm but then very quickly shifts into 4th and 5th. Pressing hard down on he accelerator does not cause the gearbox to shift down. The kick-down does not function. If I stop the car, switch off the engine, wait 20-30 seconds and re-start, the car shifts absolutely perfectly. My garage has tried many things but has failed to rectify the fault. Can you tell me what's going on?Assistant: How old is the transmission? Have you noticed any leaking?Customer: As far as I know it's 17 years old and the car has about 150 000km (just under 100 000 miles) on the clock. No leaking,Assistant: What is the model of your '01 Mercedes?Customer: S400 CDIAssistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?Customer: No not doing things myself. The garage I use has removed some (re-set) some error codes in the ECU (I don't know what they were). They replaced a blown diode in the ECU. They have removed the inlet manifold and cleaned it and measured the turbo-charger pressure.Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?Customer: No that's about it. One thing - which I think is important. If I stop and switch of the ignition and re-start, the problem goes away (temporarily).
