1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SEC 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. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Mercedes-Benz? Think twice before volunteering to tow a 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. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your 560SEC is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my 560SEC's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1989 560SEC’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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
