AMG W202 trannies

Does any body know what the differences are on the AMG cars from '95 - '97(C36)?? I know it is the same tranny as the E-class.

I need to know a few things
  • changing ATF fluid intervals
  • anybody ever ran synthetic - advice?
  • experience w/ rebuilds,Co$t
  • modifying for even firmer shifts - (don't care about stall speed, dont plan to drag race)
  • what parts are different inside vs. a regular tranny??
My car ('96 c36) will be hitting 50k miles here soon. I don't think it ever had the ATF changed. I am thinking about doing that & adding a cooler w/braided line.

The 1997- cars have the 722.6 five speed. I'm pretty sure the 95-96 cars have the 722.4 four speed.

The 1995-96 trans is a 722.3 & uses Dexron fluid.
The 1997 & later trans are 722.6 & require special MB synthetic fluid.

AMG doesn't modify the transmission BUT does remap the trans control unit on the 1997 & later cars.

Service on the 1995-96 is 30K miles.

MB says the 1997 & later cars DO not require service(HA-HA).

I just had the local MB dealer service my C43 transmission at 60,000 miles: $130 (labor, filter and pan gasket) plus $70 for transmission fluid for a total of $200.

I would view the sealed "do not service" transmission like the 10,000 mile FSS oil changes.
