Questions About 1987 Mercedes-Benz 300TD’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Mercedes-Benz? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Mercedes-Benz? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. Defying your 300TD towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. 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.
  • Does my 300TD's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Mercedes-Benz 300TD’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
