Mercedes-Benz Original ATF 134 1L MB236.14 Automatic Transmission Oil/Fluid
About this deal
Also suitable for previous Mercedes Benz 4- / 5-speed automatic transmission gearboxes requiring MB 236. I'm going to bite the bullet and attempt to do a "drain and fill" on my w202 c230k's auto box sans TC fluid change. Most manufacturers suggest changing the transmission fluid every 30,000 miles or 2 years, whichever comes first. The cost of an automatic transmission filter replacement depends on your location, vehicle and what parts the manufacturer recommends for the work. As does any automatic transmission fluid that meets or exceeds the official MB approval for that gearbox 236.
For what it's worth, the MB dealer might be expensive, but I've never had cause to doubt the work that has been done. We drain the gearbox completely and replace the oil filter before filling it with high-quality gearbox oil that meets manufacturer standards. I've also seen it suggested the gearbox should be reset and re-adapted, which is quite an involved process - but ask on forums and the general view seems to be that that's nonsense.An overview of the current Mercedes-Benz transmission oil approvals can be found in the Mercedes sheet of the operating instructions list 231. Extensive experience in diagnosing and repairing various vehicle systems, including engines, transmissions, brakes, and electrical components.

Clean up the surface that the pan gasket contacts on the transmission with a lint-free cloth or paper towel doused in brake cleaner. What I meant is that the time before this last service (pan and torque converter - complete drain) I had used Shell AFT 134.
When changing automatic transmission oil at intervals, automatic transmission flushing is always a good idea to completely remove any used oil still in the transmission. In some cases, the automatic transmission fluid will need to be changed sooner if you noticed that the fluid is dark-coloured and potentially has a burning smell. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. If you have asked for the parcel to left in a safe place, we will convey this instruction to the courier but cannot guarantee this will be done as the service is a POD service and items left without signature are at the discretion of the driver. So I can see my torque converter drain plug after turned engine over my bad with socket on crack - one job ok.
Although this walkthrough features images from an R-Class (V251), the general procedure is identical between the transmission variants. Excellent seal compatibility: FLUIDMATIC DCT MV technology performed ideally by meeting the most severe requirements of the seals testing. I also did our Jeep, with an oil and filter change, and after 12 months sucked some more fluid out with an electric pump and replaced it with new.

I should add that the gear changes were smoother and the gearbox seemed more responsive generally afterwards. I like to remove five screws and hold the pan up with my hand when removing the last screw to carefully take down the pan.Fortunately we have moved on from the early days when automatic transmission fluid was 95% Sperm Whale oil which was almost pure ester . Very happy with all aspects of the service, great communication, only run the car round the block but noticeable difference.
FLUIDMATIC DCT MV is a dual clutch transmission fluid based on an advanced synthetic technology which covers 95% of the wet clutch DCT market. It then gets replicated on the vehicle's onboard display, keeping a record that is quick and easy for you to access.It's a 2009 7 speed so yes, seems to be a change at 37,500 (you're right, not the 40,000 I was thinking) and then that's it which seems strange to me. Superior anti-shudder durability: FLUIDMATIC DCT MV demonstrated an outstanding improvement in friction durability, meaning it continues to provide the required friction response over time allowing drain intervals to be extended. Already purchased dipstick, filter, gasket, drain plug o-ring, electronics bushing and a thermometer.
