1990 Mercedes-Benz 300CE Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Mercedes-Benz's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Mercedes-Benz tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. Defying your 300CE towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your 300CE is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my 300CE's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Mercedes-Benz 300CE 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.
  • Can Mercedes-Benz 300CE transmission fluid leak? Over time, transmission fluid can leak from your Mercedes-Benz 300CE, potentially causing transmission problems. A transmission fluid leak may be caused by a damaged transmission pan, faulty transmission cooler lines, worn-out seals, a cracked transmission housing, or an overfilled transmission.
