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.
Quick Shifts & Excellent Protection in Hot Rods and Muscle Cars
Synthetic Manual Transmission Gear Lube's friction-modified formula and excellent
cold-flow properties promote smooth, fast engagement of synchronizers and gears.
It protects against wear caused by the high-horsepower, large-displacement engines
common to hot rods and muscle cars. It is formulated with seal conditioners to
Promotes Longevity in Front-Wheel-Drive Transaxles
Synthetic Manual Transmission Gear Lube meets 75W/80W-90 viscosity requirements
and exceeds API GL-4 performance requirements for many front-wheel-drive vehicles.
Its excellent gear protection, extreme-temperature performance and durability promote
maximum longevity and reduced maintenance costs.
- Protects against increased heat and pressure
- Outstanding cold-flow properties
- Protects brass synchronizers
- Excellent seal compatibility
- Inhibits rust and corrosion
- Long service life
Synthetic Manual Transmission & Transaxle Gear Lube is
recommended for applications requiring a 75W-85, 75W-90 or
80W-90 viscosity gear oil with any of the listed specifications:
- API GL-4
- Chrysler MS-9070
- ZF TE-ML 02b, 17a
- MAN 341-Z2 (formerly MAN 341 ML)
- MB 235.5
Replaces GM part #12346190 and Chrysler part #4874459.
Examples of transmissions and transaxles requiring a 75W-90,
API GL-4 lubricant include certain models of Hyundai, Infiniti,
Kia, Lexus, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Suzuki, Toyota,
Volkswagen and Hino.
Examples of street rod and muscle car transmissions include
Muncie, Borg Warner, Saginaw, Ford Toploader, Dearborn and
Under normal operating conditions AMSOIL Synthetic Manual
Transmission & Transaxle Gear Lube last two times longer
than conventional petroleum GL-4 gear oils. Where the original
equipment manufacturer (OEM) recommends synthetic oils,
follow the OEM drain interval (such as NV-4500).
