Hello
Please help. I cannot find an oil specification for my 2017 519 CDI 3.0 V6 7G Tronic transmission.

I have drained the transmission. The colour of the old oil is not identifiable. The MB dealer sold me Red MB236.14 But I suspect this is wrong.
How can I confirm what is correct? The staff at my local MB agents are not competent enough to look this up.

If it is a truly 2017 OM642 with 722.9 transmission, it takes the ATF 134 FE Blue. You can use Pentosin ATF 134 FE or Titan ATF 134 FE.

Thankyou, Its first registered as a 2017 model. If I decode the VIN it indicates it was manufactured in 2016

Does your trans pan look like either of these? Left is a .6 takes the red fluid (236.14), right is a .9 takes blue fluid (236.15). I'm not familiar with South Africa at all but these are the only factory trans pans for 906 chassis vans here in the US.
