I have a 1999 c230 Kompressor.
I'm trying to understand what ATF can be used in this auto.
I've tried to research the subject and seen lots of long threads with
often conflicting information from oil companies, "experts", and
apparently at least some MB dealers. So I'm very confused.
I've seen claims that some MB dealers use Mobil1 in about everything;
I've seen statements that only special MB ATF will do.
Mobil1 recommends Mobil1 ATF for the following #'s: "236.1, 236.2,
236.5, 236.6, 236.7, 236.9". Maybe others too.
What do these numbers represent -- transmission types??
I've used Mobil1 in all my vehicles for years with great success. Can
I use Mobil1 or something other than MB ATF in this 1999 C230
Is there a source where I can find reference #'s for this particular
Benz?? (I tried to purchase a "Shop Manual" when I originally
purchased the car in 1999 -- but the Benz dealer said the info was
available only on CD -- which he could not sell to me.)
Is my 1999 one of these noted above by Mobil1??
Is there a source where I can find reference #'s for this Benz??
Any help and assistance will be most appreciated.
