Signature Series Multi-Vehicle Synthetic Automatic Transmission Fluid

Product Highlights

AMSOIL Signature Series Multi-Vehicle Synthetic ATF is engineered to outperform conventional automatic transmission fluids and exceed the performance requirements of most North American, European and Asian vehicles. This sophisticated formulation provides outstanding performance and protection in the severe operating conditions of today’s most advanced transmission designs.

This product and the individuals at AMSOIL who keep advancing the formulation define AMSOIL more than anything else. Not using AMSOIL in your Auto-trans? Then you’re not getting the full capabilities from your transmission. The fluid knowledge base out there misses the technology thus we can say there is a LOT of lost performance and built-in protection that is not being utilized. Another reason people switch to products made by AMSOIIL’s amazing staff…

Fluid Power Philosophy

Transmissions in commercial vehicles, SUVs, trucks and vans – particularly those used for hauling or towing – are subjected to severe-service operation and increased heat. Elevated temperatures cause fluids to break down, allowing damaging metal-to-metal contact and the formation of sludge and deposits. The problem is worse in modern transmissions with more gears, clutch packs and narrow oil passages that require clean, high-quality fluid to achieve maximum performance and life.

AMSOIL Signature Series Synthetic Automatic Transmission Fluid is specifically formulated to withstand the rigors of heavy towing, elevated temperatures and challenging terrain. It remains fluid in sub-zero temperatures and provides reserve protection during heavy use and even abuse. (see – I told you so)

Proven in 180,000-mile, Severe-Service Taxi Fleet Field Trial

To demonstrate its effectiveness in severe service, Signature Series Multi-Vehicle Synthetic ATF was installed in Las Vegas taxi cabs. The vehicles routinely encountered demanding stop-and-go driving loaded with passengers and cargo, while the desert environment presented extremely hot ambient temperatures, placing enormous strain on the fluid. Following 180,000 miles, a transmission was selected for analysis. The Aluminum Beaker Oxidation Test (ABOT) is an industry standardized test used to determine a transmission fluid’s oxidation resistance, which is a good indicator of its service life. Testing by an independent, third-party lab revealed that after 180,000 miles in severe service, Signature Series Multi-Vehicle Synthetic ATF resisted oxidation longer than required for new fluid to meet the Chrysler ATF+4 specification (see graph). Internal components, including the valve body and clutch plates (pictured), were virtually free of damaging sludge, deposits and wear, confirming the lubricant’s high level of protection for severe-service applications.

Protects Against Thermal Breakdown

Signature Series Synthetic ATF is formulated with high concentrations of antioxidants, making it naturally heat resistant. It provides outstanding protection against sludge and varnish deposits that clog narrow oil passages and contribute to clutch glazing. After 180,000 miles in severe service, fluid analysis revealed Signature Series Multi-Vehicle Synthetic ATF contained 83 percent of its original oxidation inhibitors, proving its long-lasting resistance to thermal breakdown.

Outstanding Wear Protection

Varying speeds and loads causes torque multiplication and extreme stress on gears and bearings. AMSOIL formulated Signature Series Synthetic ATF with high film strength and premium anti-wear/extreme-pressure additives to help prevent wear during severe service. In the industry-standard FZG Gear Wear Test, Signature Series Multi-Vehicle Synthetic ATF that had been used for 180,000 severe-service miles achieved a “Pass” at stage 12 – the highest stage. The results exceeded the Ford MERCON V and Chrysler ATF+4 specifications for new fluid, demonstrating the lubricant’s long-lasting wear protection.

Cold-Temperature Fluidity

Cold, thick automatic transmission fluid lengthens shift times and reduces fuel economy. Signature Series Synthetic ATF is wax-free and delivers extraordinary cold-flow properties. It helps improve shift response, energy efficiency and warm-up times.

Friction Durability

Today’s transmissions are smaller and must withstand higher horsepower and torque while delivering smoother shifts, all with longer fluid life recommendations. AMSOIL Signature Series Synthetic ATF is formulated with friction modifier additives that deliver outstanding clutch-holding capacity (static friction), torque-transfer ability (dynamic friction) and anti-shudder properties (slipping torque-converter clutches). Analysis reveals that after 180,000 miles in severe service, Signature Series Multi-Vehicle Synthetic ATF provides nearly identical friction properties as new fluid for smooth, reliable shifts.

AMSOIL ATF Maximizes Automatic Transmission Efficiency and Life

Over 40 percent of total energy loss in an automatic transmission can be attributed to the act of pumping automatic transmission fluid to the transmission’s working components during transfer of power. The mechanical efficiency of an automatic transmission is directly affected by the viscosity of the transmission fluid. When temperatures drop and cause ATF to thicken, transmission efficiency and power decline. Industry tests on torque loss demonstrate that a temperature increase of 150 degrees F increases transmission efficiency by up to 37.5 percent. In other words, as viscosity decreases, transmission efficiency increases.
Higher quality automatic transmission fluids can have a profound impact on transmission efficiency. Automatic transmission fluids with lower cold temperature pump ability properties effectively keep transmissions running efficiently during cold weather, maximizing both transmission power and fuel economy.
AMSOIL ATF offers instant cold weather performance.The Brookfield Viscosity Test gauges a transmission fluid’s viscosity in cold temperature conditions. Current industry specifications dictate that Brookfield Viscosity not exceed 20,000 cP. While the average conventional transmission fluid has a Brookfield Viscosity of 15,000 cP, AMSOIL Synthetic Automatic Transmission Fluid far exceeds the minimum standard with a Brookfield Viscosity of 7,454 cP, ensuring maximum transmission efficiency and power even in the coldest winter temperatures.

AMSOIL ATF is ideal for all fleets.AMSOIL Synthetic Automatic Transmission Fluid exhibits outstanding oxidation stability, preventing viscosity increase that leads to reduced transmission efficiency and cold temperature performance. While the use of AMSOIL ATF ensures maximum transmission efficiency, its shear stability and premium antiwear additives also ensure superior wear protection, exceeding industry
standards in the Four-Ball Wear Test, FZG Test, Vickers Wear Test and Falex Extreme Pressure Test.

Also meets specifications for these heavy duty units: HT754CR, HT750DRD, HT740, MT654CR, MT644, MT653, MT643 and most others.

AMSOIL ATF is popular with hundreds of city and state fleets as it reduces heat related transmission failures, improves winter performance, and because it lasts three times longer and is universal, it drastically reduces inventories. This saves taxpayers tens of thousands of dollars!

AMSOIL ATF Saves COST OF New Tranny

 

Amsoil ATF cost less than a new transmission!Preferred Customer Baxter (Dale) Rogers of Heyworth, Ill. saved himself the cost of a new transmission by using AMSOIL Automatic Transmission Fluid.

Rogers owns a 2004 Saturn Vue that sat idle for several months last year. When he began driving it again, he noticed a fluctuation in the rpm at lower speeds.

He took the vehicle to a Chevy dealership, where he was told he needed a new transmission. “The cost would have been around $2,800,” Rogers said. “I went for a second opinion at a transmission shop, and they told me the same thing except I also needed a torque converter, which would be an additional $500 to $800.”

A third opinion, from a friend who does Rogers’ automotive work, was that the fluid needed changing. The Vue has a Honda transmission. The mechanic checked with a Honda representative, who recommended Honda transmission fluid or AMSOIL Automatic Transmission Fluid, Rogers said.

“I told my friend I would get the fluid because I am an AMSOIL Preferred Customer. I bought the AMSOIL Multi-Vehicle Transmission Fluid and he installed it,” Rogers said. “I have saved so much money using AMSOIL products, I am overwhelmed.”

Trouble-Free Performance

“The Vue now has more than 124,000 miles and is running fine,” Rogers said. “AMSOIL ATF saved the day and saved me more than $2,700. AMSOIL products are great. I’m a happy customer and enjoy reading the Magazine to keep up-to-date on AMSOIL products and the company.”

Rogers installed AMSOIL lubricants in his other vehicles, as well.

“I’ve been a Preferred Customer for about two years now, and I have three of my vehicles using AMSOIL products,” he said. ”They run so much better and cooler than I could have believed.”

In addition to the Saturn Vue, Rogers owns a 2010 Dodge Caravan and a motorhome. He uses AMSOIL synthetic motor oil along with AMSOIL ATF in those vehicles.

“When I go to Texas for the winter in my motorhome, and flat tow my Vue, I have no worry about the proper lubrication of my engines.”
