Do you have any warning lights on? Check engine light?

My recommandation would be to read the codes and see if there is a fault code stored.

Are you saying the engine RPMs go up and down at startup? It wasn't clear to me.

No, nothing warning light and any code on diagnostic. I will on the snap on  verus dio and nothing trouble code :-(.

if start car and drive  first five minute is everything ok after 5 min engine is stil cold temperature is on 50 maybe. If drive on the city relax speed  almost without gas  or want push gas pedal car start swing ( and this time of car swing,engine RPMs go up and down),but I  ride with this problem long time :-( so now is this problem little  bit bigger car no swing but kicking , when is engine oil hot around 80-90 temperature, car drive excellent.

 

sorry for my English, I still learn. And looking for right words. :)

The reason why the problem may seem worse is that the engine mount may have failed. So first check the engine mounts. There is a test that you can perform yourself but will need a helper.

Just search this "bad motor mount youcanic"

I am thinking you may have a vacuum leak. At this point I am not convinced that this is a transmission problem. The TCU would have stored a code at this point.

Another posssiblity is bad mass air flow sensor.

Have you had a Mercedes expert look at it?

Your left side is completly shot. You should change them both. They gradually fail and the right one may have leaked of the oil but hasn't seperated yet.

Once you change them, you will think you got a brand new car.
