1990 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Transmission Q&A

  • 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. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Mercedes-Benz tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. Defying your 300SL towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your 300SL is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my 300SL transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1990 300SL’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Mercedes-Benz's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
