Transmission problem
1979 Mercedes Benz 300sd 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 164000 miles

When accelerating the car does not shift properly into the next gear. It only shifts when you lift off the gas - but then if you hit the gas again it will shift down again. Car will not accelerate over a maximium of 40 miles per hour because it keeps shifting down.

Any ideas?
