"2011” SEMINAR INFORMATION8MERCEDES BENZ 722.9PRELIMINARY INFORMATIONMercedes Benz has produced a new 5th generationelectronically controlled gearbox with seven forwardand two reverse speeds.Vehicle Application/Transmission DesignationThe W7A 700 is the only model size 722.9 beingproduced at the time of this written material, a smallermodel the W7A 400 will be introduced at a later time.This transmission is referred to as:NAG 2 (Neues Automatische Getriebe 2)New Automatic Gearbox 2 or 7G- TronicVehicle Applications:Select non 4MATIC (2WD) MY 2004 vehiclesw/M113 engine.S340, S/CL/E/SL500Optional:SLK (R171-09/04)Standard Equipment:CLS 350 (late 2004)E350 (late 2004)M Class (W164-2005)R Class (W251-2005)G Class (X164-2006)End of production models that will unlikely receivethe 722.9 would be W163, R170 & V463.722.9 for W164/W251/X164 will be equipped withshift by wire (no shifter rod or cable). An electroniccontrol module on the left rear side of thetransmission just above the pan rail which operates ashift control valve and its position is monitored by aposition sensor.The 722.6 (NAG 1 or V) will continue productionuntil approximately MY 2012 and installed in:4 cyl modelsMaybachM275 vehiclessome select manufacturer’s contract vehiclesFluid TypeNewly developed suggested use “only” transmissionfluid, referred to as “ATF 3353 with higher frictionconsistency, thermal stability and temperature rating.Can also be used on previous model 722.3/.4/.5/.6transmissions. No scheduled maintenance required(fill for life) and available at Shell & Fuchs Europe oilsuppliers in 1 liter bottles under Mercedes Benz partnumber A001 989 45 03 10.Electronic Control ComponentsThe Transmission Control Module (Y3/8n4) which isCopyright 2011 ATSGflash capable, along with the following components:Eight Solenoids:Working Pressure Control Solenoid(Y3/8y1)K1Clutch Solenoid (Y3/8y2)K2 Clutch Solenoid (Y3/8y3)K3 Clutch Solenoid (Y3/8y4)B1Brake Clutch Solenoid (Y3/8y5)B2 Brake Clutch Solenoid (Y3/8y6)B3 Brake Clutch Solenoid (Y3/8y7)Torque Converter Lock Up Solenoid(Y3/8y8)Two Oil FloatsOil Control Float 1 (31)Oil Control Float 2 (32)Three Speed SensorsTurbine RPM Sensor (Y3/8n1)Internal RPM Sensor (Y3/8n2)Output RPM Sensor (Y3/8n3)Selection Range Sensor (Y3/8s1)are all integrated into the valve body assembly.Shift StrategyThe shift strategy improvements include:! Shorter computer reaction time by 0.1 second! Downshifts shortened by up to 0.2 seconds! Coasting downshifts shortened by 0.4/2.5 seconds! 37-47 MPH acceleration times shortened by 2328% (model dependant)! Fuel consumption reduced by up to 4%! Noise levels reduced, due to lower engine speed in5th, 6th & 7th gear at constant vehicle speed! Flexible adaptation to vehicle and engineVariable Shift ProgramingTwo basic shift programs can be varied by customer(same as 722.6) using the S/C button on theElectronic Shifter Module (ESM)“S”( Sport)1st gear startsNormal shift pointsReverse gear 1 (-3.416:1)“C” (Comfort)2nd gear startsEarlier up-shifts and later downshiftsReverse gear 2 (-2.231:1)Note: Transmission will start in first gear if any ofthe following conditions apply:1st gear is manually selected3/4 to full throttle acceleration from startCold engine temp (pre catalytic warm up)Automatic Transmission Service Group

"2011” SEMINAR INFORMATION9MERCEDES BENZ 722.9PRELIMINARY INFORMATIONShift Optimal Gear (SOG)Shift into Optimal Gear software as known in previousmodels .Up shifts and downshifts based on driving style andengine load (similar to 722.6)Shift interlock controlled by Electronic ShifterModule (ESM) same as previous modelsEmergency function/Limp-home mode:There are a variety of failsafe modes; if a solenoid isdefective the gear affected is blocked (examplesolenoid Y3/8y7-B3 clutch is defective: no 1st, 7th orReverse in “S” mode) If hydraulic fault prevents a gearfrom engaging then the previous gear will be applied.If the computer defaults while driving, all solenoidswill be turned off. Solenoids that are normally openwill allow full pressure to selected clutches and thetransmission will be in 6th gear. After shifting to “P”oil pressure from K2 solenoid is redirected to B2/BRsolenoid via emergency operation valves and thetransmission will now achieve 2nd in “D” andReverse.Gear RatioThe gear ratios are achieved with four multi-discbrakes and three multi-disc clutches, no free wheelsunits (sprags)There are three planetary gear sets:Two simpleOne RavigneauxTorque Converter (same used in some 722.6)Torque converter operates in open or slip mode in allseven forward gears.Lock up converter is never fully locked.Converter is open in 1st & 2nd gear if throttle andoutput shaft speed are in “Zone A”Converter is in slip-control in all 7 forward gear ifthrottle and output shaft speed are in “Zone B”. Oilfeed pressure to the converter is varied depending onthe amount of desired slip.Open: High flowSlip Control: Lower flowLock up clutch will turn off and transmission will shiftto a lower gear at oil temperatures of 140C or higher.Holds 4 liters of fluidIncorporates damper springs integral to lock up clutchto reduce vibration.Copyright 2011 ATSGVehicle TowingIf vehicle must be towed it should be transported byuse of a flat bed trailer type of tow truck.Alternate towing with vehicle drive axle lifted.If either fore mentioned options are not available a towbar (preferred) will suffice under the followingconditions/limitations:1.
