1991 Mercedes-Benz 350SDL Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Mercedes-Benz's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and 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. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your 350SDL’s towing capacity. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • Does my 350SDL's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Mercedes-Benz 350SDL’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.
