What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your 300SEL's engine to its wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It’s one of your 300SEL’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you tune into you 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL drivetrain, you help maintain your vehicle’s overall power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Mercedes-Benz's recommendations.
