Questions About 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL’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 I tow in a Mercedes-Benz 300SEL? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your 300SEL towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • How often does my 300SEL transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Mercedes-Benz 300SEL’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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
