Questions About 1984 Mercedes-Benz 300TD’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Mercedes-Benz? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
