1990 Mercedes-Benz 350SDL 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 offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your 350SDL towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my 350SDL's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Mercedes-Benz 350SDL transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
