New AMSOIL Fuel Efficient Transmission Fluid Provides high Performance Protection

New AMSOIL Fuel Efficient Transmission Fluid Provides high Performance Protection

New AMSOIL Synthetic Fuel Efficient Automatic Transmission fluid (ATL) is engineered to exceed the requirements of GM, Ford and Toyota where low-viscosity oil is required. The highly-specialized properties of this fuel efficient fluid provide outstanding performance without compromising protection, even in severe operating conditions.

Automatic transmissions have become increasingly complex as vehicle manufacturers strive to improve efficiency while satisfying consumer demands. Smaller, smoother0shifting transmissions with longer fluid life capabilities and heavier load capacities are now standard. Traditional ATFs, however, are unable to meet these extreme requirements, and new fluids have emerged with each new advancement in transmission engineering. AMSOIL Synthetic Fuel Efficient Automatic Transmission Fluid is formulated with the highest quality components to exceed the most industry standards.

Exceptional Hot and Cold Temperature Performance

Thermal Stability - Hot temperatures are no excuse for poor reliability. Naturally heat-resistant and heavily fortified with antioxidants, AMSOIL Fuel Efficient Automatic Transmission fluid exceeds the most demanding oxidation requirements. It delivers outstanding protection against sludge and varnish deposits that clog narrow oil passages and contribute to clutch glazing. AMSOIL Synthetic Fuel Efficient ATF protects hot-running transmissions.

Cold-temperature Fluidity - Cold, thick automatic transmission fluid lengthens shift times and reduces energy efficiency (fuel economy). AMSOIL Synthetic Fuel Efficient Automatic Transmission Fluid is was-free and delivers extraordinary cold-flow performance (<-60°F pour point). It helps improve shifting response and energy efficiency while reducing warm up times.

Outstanding Wear Protection

Varying speeds and loads causes torque multiplication and extreme stress on gears and bearings. To prevent wear damage resulting from insufficient fluid film, AMSOIL Synthetic Fuel Efficient ATF is formulated with high film strength (shear stability) and a select anti-wear/extreme-pressure additive that develops a boundary layer of protection between metal surfaces. Even though AMSOIL Synthetic Fuel Efficient Automatic Transmission fluid is a low viscosity, fuel-efficient fluid, it has demonstrated its ability to protect as well as or better than higher-viscosity fluids in the most severe industry tests.

Friction Durability

Modern transmissions are smaller in design, yet are called upon to deliver smoother shifts and longer fluid-life capabilities in higher-horsepower and higher-torque conditions. AMSOIL placed great emphasis on developing a fluid to effectively address the complex demands related to friction. AMSOIL Synthetic Fuel Efficient Automatic Transmission Fluid delivers outstanding clutch-holding capacity (static friction), torque transfer ability (dynamic friction) and anti-shudder properties (slipping torque converter clutches)

Extended Fluid Service Life

Most drivers are unaware that transmissions commonly operate under severe service and require shorter fluid drain intervals. AMSOIL Synthetic Fuel Efficient ATF is a long life fluid capable of extended service intervals. It provides an extra margin of protection, especially when fluid change intervals are missed or during heavy use, even during abuse. Drivers can count on AMSOIL Synthetic Fuel Efficient Automatic Transmission Fluid to provide protection beyond conventional fluids.

Applications

As Vehicle manufacturers continue the trend toward lighter-bodied fluids in the name of fuel efficiency, formulating a universal transmission fluid that meets these low viscosity requirements and the requirements of previous specifications, without sacrificing performance, has become increasingly difficult. With the addition of AMSOIL Fuel Efficient Automatic Transmission Fluid, AMSIOL now offers a transmission fluid for virtually every application.

The addition of this high quality transmission fluid that meets the low viscosity requirements of GM DEXRON®VI, Ford MERCON® LV & SP and Toyota WS has allowed AMSOIL to increase the viscosity of AMSOIL ATF slightly, thereby meeting the initial viscosity requirements of several additional OEM specifications.

AMSOIL Synthetic Fuel Efficient Automatic Transmission Fluid is recommended for automatic transmissions and other applications requiring DEXRON VI, MERCON LV, SP or Toyota WS.

AMSOIL Synthetic Fuel Efficient Automatic Transmission Fluid is backward-compatible and replaces DEXRON III fluids in older GM automatic transmissions. (DEXRON VI specification supersedes the obsolete DEXRON III in GM vehicles)
