It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. 1993 Mercedes-Benz 400SEL transmission problems can show up as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. Let Mercedes-Benz 400SEL transmission problems linger and you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that your 400SEL isn’t working at all.

1993 Mercedes-Benz 400SEL Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my 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.
  • How much can I tow in a Mercedes-Benz 400SEL? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my 400SEL's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Mercedes-Benz 400SEL 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.
