2005 Mercedes-Benz C240 Transmission Q&A

  • 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 offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • Does my C240's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Mercedes-Benz C240 transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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.
