Sounds like one of two things
one turn on your car wait for two minutes than check your teams fluid level if low than add one or two quarts check under vehicle for any leaks (careful car will be hot.
Second if all that it's good than u have bad solenoids or burn clutches good luck.

Low rpm/ loss in power/ slow accleration in a c200 mercedes 1996 model

low rpm/loss in power is cause by two things 1- fuel filters stop contaminants(rust,water,corrosion,sand,dirt)from entering the fuel lines if it is stuck could cause such problem 2-fuel pump also cause such kind of problems i think mercedes-benz has 2 pump if one is stopped the system will not have to needed fuel pressure and the quantity of the delivered fuel will be less than the needed one that will cause loss in power you have to check the fuel pressure in the lines.if one pump is not working change both pump because after sometimes the second one will stop and will cause the same problem again
check them and post me back to check what you found.

Your saying when you come to a stop,and want to take off and then it out no where goes as you try to acclerate.? Of course it neither one of them 2 things of concern first it sounds like you are low on transmission need to check the transmission level if it is low and or doesnt register on the dipstick then what you have describe is the problem low on transmission fluid. Here is how it works when you have the appropriate level transfluid is sufficient to move the car.when your low its not enough fluid to engage the gears and when you step on the fuel pedal it forces to fluid to shift thcar and this is bad on engine and transmission, so check the level. Just for now make sure you have the appriopriate level
