Questions About 1984 Mercedes-Benz 300SD’s Transmission

  • 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. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your 300SD is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my 300SD's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Mercedes-Benz 300SD transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Mercedes-Benz, so check with your technician first. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
