1993 Mercedes-Benz 500SEL Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your Mercedes-Benz's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to 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 light the load might seem. Defying your 500SEL 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.
  • How often does my 500SEL transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1993 500SEL’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system 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.
