I drive a Mercedes-Benz E200 Classic (W210), the problem is when im driving and I go into the fifth gear the engine makes a loud noise like im in the wrong gear and sort of stalls but when I go to the sixth gear it moves just fine. I am worried because I dont want to destroy the engine or overwork it. Thank you

Are you sure that it is a noise with the engine and not the transmission?

The sound is from the transmission I guess, it feels like the fifth gear is the third and this make the car stall and make it seem like I am over stressing the engine
