Mercedes-Benz Automatic Transmission Oil MB 236.14 1 L
Mercedes-Benz automatic transmission oil MB 236.14 is the OEM transmission oil from Mercedes-Benz for use in the 7-speed automatic transmission Mercedes-Benz 7G-Tronic 722.9.
Since the introduction of the 7G-Tronic transmission in 2003, the 7G-Tronic torque converter automatic has gradually replaced the older 5G-Tronic in the various Mercedes-Benz model series. Compared to its 5-speed predecessor, the 7G-Tronic achieved unprecedented shift comfort, fuel efficiency and sportiness in Mercedes vehicles.
When choosing the correct automatic transmission oil for Mercedes-Benz vehicles, it is urgent to determine whether the 7G-Tronic transmission or its further development 7G-Tronic Plus is installed, because this determines which transmission oil release is specified:
The big difference between MB 236.14 and 236.15 - Which transmission oil to buy?
In the course of optimizing the 7G-Tronic automatic transmission in 2010, Mercedes-Benz adapted the transmission oil of the 7G-Tronic transmission! The distinction between 7G-Tronic and 7G-Tronic Plus automatic transmission becomes essential when choosing the right automatic transmission fluid for your Mercedes! While for the original 7G-Tronic transmission a transmission oil according to the Mercedes-Benz release MB 236.14 was prescribed, in the 7G-Tronic Plus an oil with lower viscosity is used, which receives the MB 236.15 release.
So before choosing the automatic transmission oil applies:
Be sure to determine whether your vehicle has a 7G-Tronic or 7G-Tronic+ automatic transmission. Transmission oils according to MB 236.15 release are not downward compatible with other transmission oils and must not be used in a 7G-Tronic, in which a transmission oil according to MB 236.14 must be filled.
7G-Tronic and 7G-Tronic+ transmissions can be identified by the following features:
- 7G-Tronic+ transmissions have the equipment code A89 for the friction-reduced converter on the data card and a transmission number from 2.834.527 onwards.
- 7G-Tronic transmissions do not have the code A89. Transmission numbers up to 2.834.526 are 7G-Tronic transmissions.
To determine exactly which automatic transmission fluid to use for your vehicle, you should refer exclusively to the information in your vehicle manual!
When to change Mercedes 7G-Tronic transmission oil?
For the oil change of the automatic transmission oil Mercedes-Benz prescribes partly different change intervals for the 7G-Tronic and 7G-Tronic Plus transmissions. A distinction is often made here according to vehicle model or installed engine. An oil change on the 7G-Tronic transmission is often due after 50,000 km or 3 years (exceptions must be observed!).
With the improved 7G-Tronic+ transmission, change intervals are often higher: Here, the prescribed change is usually due after 125,000 km or 5 years.
To determine exactly when the transmission oil in your vehicle's automatic transmission should be changed, it is essential to refer to the information in your Mercedes vehicle manual.
