Helps Prevent Clutch Slippage

Amsoil Synthetic Powershift Transmission Fluid is compatible with common metallic and non-metallic friction materials. Its stable frictional characteristics help eliminate excessive brake noise and vibration. Its non-slip friction properties are designed to prevent clutch slippage, which can cause glazing or friction-surface deposits and material degradation. Powershift Transmission Fluid is formulated to deliver responsive yet smooth clutch engagements, excellent power transmission through clutches and synchronizers and superior hydraulic fluid performance.

Excellent Wear Protection

Amsoil Synthetic Powershift Transmission Fluid meets the wear and frictional requirements of the Caterpillar* TO-4 specification and is formulated for superior shear stability. Its superior shear stability allows Powershift Transmission Fluid to stay in grade throughout its service life, providing long-term protection against equipment wear, even when equipment is frequently subjected to sustained high torque.

Superior High- and Low-Temperature Performance

In high temperatures, Amsoil Synthetic Powershift Transmission Fluid effectively protects components from wear. Its superior oxidative and thermal stability inhibits the formation of varnish, deposits and sludge so equipment runs clean. Synthetic Powershift Transmission Fluid functions as a heat-transfer fluid and helps cool hot-running equipment. In low temperatures, Synthetic Powershift Transmission Fluid flows readily for dependable startup and post-startup protection.

Copper Corrosion, Rust and Foam Inhibition

Amsoil Synthetic Powershift Transmission Fluid protects equipment from copper corrosion and rust, even during equipment storage. It does not foam in service, protecting equipment from metal-to-metal contact and wear.

  • Helps eliminate clutch glazing and vibration
  • Protects against gear and bearing wear
  • Helps keep components clean
  • Guards against rust and corrosion

Resists Wear

Amsoil Long-Life Synthetic Transmission Oil’s synthetic base oils withstand the pressures of high-load, high-torque applications. As a result, it resists viscosity loss due to mechanical shear to provide a durable lubricating fluid film for increased wear resistance and longer transmission life.

To prove its effectiveness, Amsoil installed SAE 50 Long-Life Synthetic Transmission Oil in line-haul trucks and placed them into real-world service. After more than 500,000 miles, a transmission was disassembled and inspected by a calibrated ASTM rater. Results reveal Long-Life Synthetic Transmission Oil provided outstanding wear protection in all critical components (see images).

The transmission gears and synchro friction material demonstrated minimal wear following 500,000 miles, while the output seal did not leak and still contained 100% of its grease, proving the lubricant’s superior performance.

Year-Round Performance

Amsoil Long-Life Synthetic Transmission Oil’s high viscosity index translates into better high- and low-temperature performance compared to conventional fluids. In cold weather, it provides easier shifts and reduced fluid drag for increased fuel economy. Its exceptional thermal stability inhibits chemical breakdown and sludge formation at high operating temperatures to help transmissions run cleaner.

Inhibits Foam

Churning gears introduce air into the fluid, causing foam. When bubbles between gear surfaces collapse, metal-to-metal contact and increased wear result. Long-Life Synthetic Transmission Oil contains foam inhibitors to ensure formation of a strong lubricating film and excellent wear protection.

Seal Friendly

Long-Life Synthetic Transmission Oil is compatible with seals to help prevent leaks and extend seal life.

Applications

Amsoil SAE 50 Long-Life Synthetic Transmission Oil is excellent for use in manual transmissions requiring an SAE 50 lubricant found in heavy-duty equipment. It is recommended for applications specifying any of the following:

  • Eaton* PS-164 Rev. 7
  • API GL-1 and MT-1
  • Navistar*/International* TMS 6816

Amsoil Transmission & Transaxle Gear Lube 75W-90 (MTG)

Product Highlights View Full Description

Amsoil synthetic manual transmission and transaxle gear lube 75W0-90 is formulated specifically for demanding manual transmission and transaxle applications.

Towing, heavy hauling and performance driving create shock-loading conditions and elevated heat that threaten the performance and life of manual transmissions and transaxles. Making matters worse, horsepower, torque and towing capacities seem to increase with each new vehicle model year, increasing severity. AMSOIL Synthetic Manual Transmission & Transaxle Gear Lube is specifically formulated to reduce friction and maintain viscosity for long component and fluid life. It is designed to excel in severe-service conditions that exceed the limitations of conventional fluids.

Protects Against Wear & Heat in Severe Applications

Synthetic Manual Transmission & Transaxle Gear Lube is shear-stable and maintains its viscosity despite rigorous mechanical action. It provides a thick lubricating film and contains extreme-pressure additives to protect against wear in severe-service and shock-loading conditions common when towing or hauling. It resists thermal degradation and oxidation for excellent performance in high-temperature applications, such as the New Venture NV-4500 transmission, which retains heat due to its cast-iron housing and is often subject to increased torque from turbodiesel engines.
