Questions About 1988 Mercedes-Benz 190E’s Transmission

  • What happens when you "ride" your 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.
  • What can I tow in a Mercedes-Benz? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your 190E towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • Does my 190E's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Mercedes-Benz 190E 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
