1985 Mercedes-Benz 300TD Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Mercedes-Benz's brakes? 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.
  • How much can my Mercedes-Benz tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your 300TD’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your 300TD is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my 300TD's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Mercedes-Benz 300TD’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.
