Questions About 1984 Mercedes-Benz 300CD’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. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Mercedes-Benz tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. Defying your 300CD 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 300CD's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Mercedes-Benz 300CD transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
