This table only serves as an overview!

● Should be used.

○ Can be used.

With conversion to another oil:
Change service life factors in the maintenance system (WS) and pay attention to specified service interval processors.
1.) Only for: G 1/18-5, G 3/50, G 3/60 without MS synchronization.

2.) Use engine oils as per sheet 235.12, SAE 30, with common oil circuit with ZF torque converter clutch 400.

3.) Only in combination with oil cooler.

4.) with secondary retarder.

5.) W 4 B 035 only as of major assembly end no. 00 57 33 and modified shift plate must be installed. ATF as per Sheets 236.1, 236.8, and 236.81 may not be used in W 4 B 035.

6.) Only use in exceptional cases! If no synthetic oil in accordance with 235.4 or 235.11 available.

7.) For Allison transmissions, the application instructions on sheet 231.0 must be observed!
8.) Automatic transmission fluids (ATF), sheet 236.91 and TES 295 for Allison automatic transmission. This oil permits much longer oil change intervals, in particular for Allison transmissions.

9.) Except in Latin America.

10.) Only in temperate zones.

11.) Except in temperate zones, SAE 40.

12.) Only use in exceptional cases! If no synthetic oil as per 235.11 available.

13.) SAE 30.

14.) In combination with VIAB transmissions, the oil 75W-90 is to be used.

15.) Reduced maintenance interval.

16.) for cold countries, sheet 235.1 is not permissible (as of – 20°C). Use sheet 235.41.
