Questions About 1983 Mercedes-Benz 300CD’s Transmission

  • 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. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Mercedes-Benz? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. Defying your 300CD towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my 300CD's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1983 300CD’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Mercedes-Benz's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
