Questions About 1993 Mercedes-Benz 500SEC’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Mercedes-Benz? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. 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 a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your 500SEC towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • When should I have my 500SEC's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Mercedes-Benz 500SEC’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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
