is there anybody that can confirm what spec oil will go in my auto gearbox? Thanks
If it's the 722.6, 5 speed, 236.14.
Even if it is a 722.9 7 speed it will also be spec 236.14 (this is red)
The later 722.9 gearboxes (called the 7G+) changed to a spec 236.15 (a blue/green colour). This was introduced in late 2010 with the move to with stop/start but (AFAIK) some cars without stop/start had this auto box too.
The two specs of ATF aren't miscible and the 236.15 shouldn't be used in the earlier box. Anyway, the 236.15 is more expensive.
I believe mine is 722.9
I think it’s that?
This is what I use in my 7g (and 5g) . Excellent stuff , don't quote me , but I believe MB use it as factory fill in the gearboxes
I don't know if you are going to DIY it , but I did a thread on my DIY attempt a few months ago , I'll try and find it
Yes, but ... it says 'complies to the specification of'. That isn't the same as Approved by MB.
Fuchs is MB approval 236.14 MB spec , I just checked on Opie oils website (and the back of my Atf4134 tub)
I’m planning on replacing my torque converter
Way outside my comfort level . What mileage have you got ?
I’m on 150k miles,I’ve been a mechanic for nearly 30 years off and on,plus I’m not paying 1500 to have it replaced
What did you use as a one way valve to put the oil in?
Check out my diy link above buddy , it's all there , maybe in another 30 years I can call myself a mechanic
How important is it that you monitor the gearbox temp?
^ Very. You'll get a different reading if the ATF isn't up to temperature when measured (80C IIRC).
Is the plastic level indicator mounted on the filter?
