Is there a genuine chip or mod that will allow my 451 to shift like a 453 or like a regular automatic car? I am not digging the jerky transmission at all
Is torque converter something that can be put on the 451?Totally different motor and transmission between the two models. The 451 has a single clutch and the 453 has a dual clutch. That plus perhaps better programming improves the shifts but even the 453 isn’t butter smooth like a regular auto. I’ve lived with both . Remember, it is a manual transmission and clutch controlled by a computer. Need I say more? Lol. Some auto companies have put in a torque converter to soften the abruptness of shifts in these types of transmissions.
I don't think it's you either; there are ways to make it less jerky, but I think that's just the nature of it and changing it involves investing significant time, effort, and money altering it.Been driving manual all my life, I had a BT50 2009(mazda) in my country for my daily driver and shifting was smooth af... for a 2013 car, designed by MB, I can tell you that the jerky transmission is not due to my technique. I have seen a lot of people complain about it here and it seems it's either you get used to it or it magically disappears after a few miles. Mine has 17k miles so you would think it be optimal now. I solely drive it on manual and the shifting is really not the best (for a 2013 car). I wish I could fine a solution for this. I heard the 2016 model does not have that problem, which I could swap the pertinent components
Change the transmission fluid to Valvoline SynPower 75W-140. It's MB and foreign car compliant. I changed that out on Katerina and she was way quieter and less milkshaky. It looks like a bear, but jam the bottle in between the left spring. I believe it was 2qts. Hope this helps!Is there a genuine chip or mod that will allow my 451 to shift like a 453 or like a regular automatic car? I am not digging the jerky transmission at all
