Time to get a new school MB guy then. The problem could be a number of things and what I find interesting is that a lot of these mechanics have no idea how to fix limp-mode problems. They throw parts at it until the problem is fixed before addressing a cause.

This may be transmission problem.Limp home mode is when trany lock in 2-nd gear allow you to drove home or car shop.You can't accelerate, just slowly ,,limp" back home for short distance.I suspect electronic sending unit failure. But it may be just low level transmission fluid or so.Find someone with code reader to check computer fault codes.
