1989 Mercedes-Benz 300E Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your 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. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Mercedes-Benz? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. Defying your 300E 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 300E's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Mercedes-Benz 300E 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
