1989 Mercedes-Benz 190D Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my Mercedes-Benz's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Mercedes-Benz tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • How often does my 190D transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Mercedes-Benz 190D transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Mercedes-Benz. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
