1987 Mercedes-Benz 300D Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Mercedes-Benz's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. 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 offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your 300D’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your 300D is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my 300D's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Mercedes-Benz 300D’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. 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.
