Engineered to eliminate deficiencies common to conventional
petroleum ATFs, AMSOIL Torque-Drive provides superior performance
and protection against thermal and oxidative degradation, sludge and
varnish formation, viscosity shear down, cold-temperature oil thickening,
poor friction stability, high component wear and shortened oil life.
Automatic transmission operating expenses can be directly linked to
transmission fluid quality. Immediate financial benefits are possible
upon the installation of AMSOIL Torque-Drive. Vehicles stay on the road
longer, unnecessary labor and maintenance costs are reduced, and
the return on costly transmission investments is maximized. AMSOIL
Torque-Drive is a multi-functional fluid ideal for mixed fleets of vehicles,
meeting the most stringent heavy-duty transmission specifications and
helping eliminate compatibility concerns and misapplication.
Transmissions operating under severe-service conditions can
cause transmission fluid to break down and allow damaging
metal-to-metal contact and increased wear. AMSOIL Torque-Drive is formulated to exceed industry requirements. Its top-of-the-line synthetic base oils and premium additives deliver
superior viscosity retention and high film strength to help prevent
wear and reduce operating temperatures during severe-service
Oxidation by-products destroy the sensitive friction
characteristics of transmission fluids, resulting in the rapid
degradation of shift quality. The thermal and oxidative stability
inherent in AMSOIL Torque-Drive helps ensure consistent,
smooth clutch engagement in heavy-duty applications
throughout the life of the fluid. AMSOIL Torque-Drive maintains
proper coefficients of friction, and helps prevent clutch glazing
and elongated shift times.
EXTREME TEMPERATURE PERFORMANCE
Hot operating conditions are no excuse for poor transmission
reliability. By delivering a slower-than-normal oxidation rate,
AMSOIL Torque-Drive helps prevent sludge that blocks small
valves and varnish that restricts component movement, and
reduces oil thickening that slows shift times.
In cold temperatures, AMSOIL Torque-Drive easily flows, as
it does not contain the wax found in conventional ATFs. Cold-temperature
fluidity allows for the proper operation of small,
delicate, electronically controlled solenoids that affect gear
changes. Transmissions using AMSOIL Torque-Drive have
quick response times during cold operation and can be used
immediately upon startup.
