Not go over 20 mph.

Hello Everybody,

Sometimes my car will not go over 20 mph and I start to smell smoke. I have to pull over and turn off the engine and restart it for it to go back to normal. What's wrong with my car and how much will it cost to get it fix?

Thank You,

Wally

Sounds like your ME or transmission is in "limp home" mode. I'm thinking you should have a "check engine" light on -- true?

False, the check engine light does not come on. I'm wondering how much it is going to cost to get it repair.

$42,328.75 + tax.



Seriously, you will not get an answer here. The only way to find out is to take it to someone capable of diagnosing the problem and the ability to fix it. Usually an MB main dealer or a good indy.
