Transmission problem
1991 Mercedes Benz E220 V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 160000 miles

I hope you can help me. When I was driving this morning the car ended up stuck in 3rd Gear which I think is the limp home mode. When I got home I checked the fluid and it was quite low so I topped it up although I may have put too much in. Since the the car goes up through the gears as far as 3rd gear but it wont go any further. When it tries to go into 4th sometimes it looses the gears all together and ends up in neutral. I have reset the transmission switch but still I have had no luck. Can you give me any advice at all.

Many Thanks
