Talibanis:
1. Volkswagen Touareg V6 2003/4
2. Mercedes Benz E240 V6 12 plugs ML engine 99/00

Volks Touraeg engine needs 5w40 oil

For your transmission, Volkswagen recommends any of these oil, G 052 162, G 052 990 or G 055 025.

M Benz E240 Engine Oil; 5w40 or 5w30.
Could not get information regarding the transmission.

Your engine is a 2.5L V6 engine. It requires 6.5Litres of 5w40 Engine Oil. We recommend Castrol Edge Fully Synthetic.

Your Gearbox requires any of these BMW oil: 7045E, 8072B, LA 2634, LT 71141;
If you can't get any of them, use the Castrol Dexron III fluid.

You mean dexron iii fluid in place of LT 71141?
Is it only Castrol Dexron iii that can serve as replacement among dexron 3s?

There are so many brands in the market to pick from. We recommend Castrol as this is also recommended by BMW.
We cannot vouch for other products. But however we hear Oando has good stuff.

Please get the Motorcraft Mercon V. It is available in the market.

From 2009, Ford transmissions using Mercon V were changed to Mercon LV.

Please never interchange both as they are not compatible. The Mercon LV has lower viscosity and is made for newer transmissions.

Car manufacturers normally specify the kind of ATF to be used for cars with automatic gearboxes. Take for example, Toyota cars do have the recommended ATF inscribed on the stick that you use to gauge the gear oil. Either D1, D11 or D111, as the case may be. So, I will simply advice that before you change your car ATF, kindly check the specification(s) on the dip stick.

Well said. However have you tried changing ATF for German cars such as VW with no dipstick? Some were originally built with hopes that ATF would last the lifetime of the vehicle but this is not so.

For some cars, the specified ATFs are not in the market. In such case, we recommend a good alternative

Do you think the change to mercon V will not have any adverse effect on the transmission? As the tech than service for previous owner claimed he uses holt atf to top up for the past 3 years.

If you plan on doing a flush, change back to Mercon V.

How does the gear perform at the moment? If you plan on doing just a drain and refill, then you can use the Holt dex 3.

Toyota recommends Type T-IV for your transmission.
