1991 Mercedes-Benz 420SEL Questions & Answers

  • 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. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.

About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Mercedes-Benz, so check with your technician first. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
