September 2001 Issue

Issue Summary:

This month’s issue covers a variety of complaints on Mercedes Benz vehicles, including harsh reverse or delayed reverse engagement in 722.3, 722.4 & 722.5 units, and slipping on take-off on models equipped with the rear-pump-elimination kit.

In AX4S/AXODE units, solenoid-wire connectors installed on the wrong solenoids may cause harsh shifts, a clicking noise and tie-up on shifts.

We have listed the vehicle-harness repair kits that are available for several different Ford transmissions.

Failure of the exhaust-brake system on Isuzu NPR/GMC Forward Tiltmaster vehicles could be caused by elevated line pressure and premature transmission failure.
