Synthetic Transmission Fluid
In years past, some OEM’s stated the transmission were a “fill-for-life” and some still do. Today this statement no longer generally accepted, simply because every vehicle operated in different environments and climate conditions. The gradual decrease in transmission performance is caused by the fluid’s depleting additives and oxidation, the fluid’s colour turns dark. The “fill-for-life” was dismissed as motorist no longer accepted these deficiencies choosing to changed the fluid. It is still often overlooked by many, but those who choose their transmission fluid with AMSOIL find a big difference in shifting and hot/ cold weather performance.
Modern automatic transmissions are more complicated than their predecessors. Today’s designs feature more gears, clutch packs and narrow oil passageways that require a steady supply of high-quality fluid. Without a high quality fluid, these transmissions will encounter unnecessary wear and fluid sludge formation. Performance slowly decreases, or mechanical failure results in thousands of dollars in repairs.
Customers who choose AMSOIL for their transmission fluid change, quickly realize better fuel economy and performance. Typical transmission service begins after the first 30,000 miles/ 50,000 kms.,but different transmission and driving conditions warrants different service intervals. When using AMSOIL Transmission fluids and gear lubes, motorist can our extended drain interval for a longer lasting experience of better fuel economy and performance.
