Good day,

To begin with, I have very little mechanical expertise, but try to work on my car as much as I can or at least be knowledgeable about it, so any help is greatly appreciated.

The other day, we took our 190E through the car wash, afterwards the car would not shift out of 1st gear and we have been told the transmission went out and have been quoted $2000 for the repairs. We only paid $5000 for it, and don't have the funds for the repairs. Could somthing else be the issue? Any ideas?

I thought simply perhaps the distributer got water in it. But the water should have evaporated by now and the problem should be solved but it isn't.

Thanks for your all your time
