Says it meets 236.10 and is suitable for the 722.6 so should be fine. Not sure how the price compares to MB though

Would you recommend going with the 236.10 or is it better to go with the 236.14, I'm only going to do a oil change and not a flush as I've heard about issues with fluid shock after flushes

Go with 236.14 , Fuchs 4134 on eBay , there are some good prices . If you buy 8 Liters , you can change 4L , then do the same a week later and you will have done 75% then . ( I've not heard of fluid shock as a worry people have when doing the flush thought )
Have a read on the DIY section of the forum , there are some great how to do its for ATF change , and also on YouTube as well . I take it you will do the filter as well ?

The Pela6000 pump is an easy way to replace fluid in the gearbox ( and engine as well )

Halfords sell ATF which meets MB236.14 for about £30 for a five litre bottle. It may have gone up in price since I last looked though. You could use this as a "flush" and then replace it with the Mercedes stuff, although if it meets the spec, it must do the trick.

I used the Halfords ATF on two C Classes with 722.6 gearboxes with excellent results just draining the 3.5 litres out of the sump and refilling.

I spoke to the Mercedes dealer today and they consulted there technical department and they advised the 236.14 cannot be put in without doing a full flush of the old oil.

They never gave a reason, so possibly they just wanted some work.

That was exactly my thought.
There is no reason I'm aware of why they should need to flush through the gearbox.

The car is a 2006 car, the oil was changed by mercedes in 2007, does anyone know whether they would have put the 236.10 oil in around that year or did the dealers start putting in the later oil around that year

Correct. MB236.14 is fully synthetic. Anything previous to that was part synthetic and a completely different oil. In any case, when changing ATF, I would always advocate pumping out or draining the TC.

All models post 2009 had fully synthetic MB236.14 from the factory both in 5 and 7 speed variants.

An extract from the Fuchs website....

TITAN ATF 4134 is backward compatible to products fulfilling the requirements of MB-Approval 236.12 and substitutes them in almost every application (refer to
manufacturer filling instructions or contact us for advice).

TITAN ATF 4134 is specially recommended for 5-speed transmissions with regulated torque converter lockup clutch for vehicles with rear wheel drive (model designation 722.6) for remarkable improvement of shifting quality.

TITAN ATF 4134 is also suitable for Chrysler Crossfire and other cars requiring TITAN ATF 4134 or a product in compliance with MB-Approval
236.14. TITAN ATF 4134 is also specified for the use in Ssang Yong vehicles equipped with Mercedes Benz transmissions.

Whilst ATF 4134 is miscible
and compatible with conventional branded ATFs, a complete oil change is recommended when converting to TITAN ATF 4134 in order to exploit the product’s full benefits.


It only says a complete oil change is "recommended". Over the years, I've done two 3.5 litre drains and refills with 236.14 on 722.6 boxes mixing original ATF which must have been 236.10 or thereabouts with no ill effects, although I can understand why they would recommend a full replacement.
