Synthetic CVT Fluid

Product code : CVTQT-EA

CVTs require a unique transmission fluid with specialized frictional characteristics designed to ensure the belt or chain remains in contact with the pulleys without slipping. AMSOIL Synthetic CVT Fluid provides outstanding metal-to-metal frictional properties and excellent protection and performance for CVTs throughout vehicle manufacturer-recommended drain intervals.

Synthetic CVT Fluid



Continuously variable transmissions (CVTs) create unlimited gear ratios using a belt or chain running between two variable diameter pulleys. CVTs require a unique transmission fluid with specialized frictional characteristics designed to ensure the belt or chain remains in contact with the pulleys without slipping. AMSOIL Synthetic CVT Fluid provides outstanding metal-to-metal frictional properties and excellent protection and performance. It is Warranty Secure and is a cost-effective, high-performance alternative to vehicle manufacturer fluids.

Excellent Frictional Properties
The metal-to-metal frictional properties between the CVT's belt/chain interface and the pulleys are important, relying on the CVT fluid to prevent slipping. AMSOIL Synthetic CVT Fluid provides exceptional metal-to-metal frictional properties to help prevent belt and chain slipping and help extend transmission life.

Outstanding Wear Protection
AMSOIL Synthetic CVT Fluid is durable. In normal and severe service, it effectively resists wear to the transmission's vital parts, helping achieve long life.

Resists Heat
In elevated heat, Synthetic CVT Fluid's thermally stable formulation guards against the harmful effects of thermal breakdown. It resists the formation of varnish that can threaten transmission performance and life.

Superior Wet-Clutch Performance
AMSOIL Synthetic CVT Fluid provides superior wet-clutch performance for outstanding anti-shudder durability and reduced noise, vibration and harshness.

Field Proven
Field testing was conducted to compare AMSOIL Synthetic CVT Fluid and Nissan NS-2 CVT Fluid. Four vehicles (two equipped with AMSOIL CVT Fluid and two with Nissan NS-2 CVT Fluid) were driven 100,000 miles before the transmissions were torn down and inspected.

As indicated by the lack of wear in the belt and pulley photos below, AMSOIL CVT Fluid provided outstanding protection throughout the duration of the field trial, proving it is a high-quality replacement for Nissan NS-2 CVT Fluid.

Lab Tested
AMSOIL lab testing also reveals AMSOIL CVT Fluid met, and in some cases surpassed, the protection and performance of Nissan NS-2 CVT Fluid:

  • In FZG wear testing (ASTM D5182), Nissan NS-2 achieved a 7 stage pass, while AMSOIL CVT Fluid significantly surpassed it with an 11 stage pass.
  • In the JASO LVFA Anti-Shudder Durability Test, AMSOIL CVT Fluid lasted six times longer, translating into improved anti-shudder durability and reduced noise, vibration and harshness.

    Only the best for my CVT
    By  ADAM,  a  Verified Buyer  on  October 12, 2021

    Describe the issue

    This cvt fluid was used in a brand new 2021 Kia Forte LXS. I drained the cvt pan out at 1,600 miles and added approx 3.25 qts of Amsoil cvt fluid. My best mpg prior to was 51 mpg, now it's upwards of 58 mpg. This is verified with my ScanGauge ll. I have two more cvt pan drains which will yield close to 100% Amsoil in my new car. Thank you Amsoil for producing the best products at a reasonable price!
    Bottom Line
    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

    Superior fluid
    By  WILLIAM,  a  Verified Buyer  from  Oklahoma  on  September 20, 2021

    Describe the issue

    From my Honda to my Nissan, amsoil cvt transmission fluid is far superior to any cvt transmission fluid available! From experience, I’ve use this fluid at recommended change intervals; fluid remains same color with zero shavings. Belt slippage stops with amsoil!!!! Honda fluid is probably worst fluid you could use for you’re Honda cvt transmission, save wear on you’re transmission by switching. Currently have 121,000 miles on my accord with zero issues at 30,000 mile interval changes. Currently have 161,000 on my Altima v6, no problems at all! I don’t recommend extending any fluid change intervals recommended by manufacturer, and amsoil will preserve performance long past typical life of transmission. Also consider other transmission fluid’s by amsoil, would bet they are equally superior to any on market.
    Bottom Line
    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

    Best Transmission Fluid for silky smooth shifts
    By  LUIS,  a  Verified Buyer  from  Texas  on  September 03, 2021

    Describe the issue

    My cousin’s 2017 Sentra was due for a transmission was due for service at 30k miles and I offered to do the work for her. I have had great experience with Amsoil and thus recommend that she use the CVT Amsoil fluid for the job. After replacing the fluid and filters, the transmission underwent what seemed to be a transformation; the car accelerated slightly faster and the shifts were buttery smooth. And considering that this car uses Jatco transmissions that are finicky if not maintained properly, I know I just doubled the life of the transmission by using Amsoil’s fluid. This stuff is recommended for everybody if they want the best for their transmission!
    Bottom Line
    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

    Amsoil CVT Excellent in Honda Fit
    By  RICHARD,  a  Verified Buyer  from  MN  on  September 01, 2021

    Describe the issue

    Excellent product. Amsoil needs to update their formulation quickly to the latest Subaru CVTF III fluid specs. Redline has already done so. Amsoil needs to quicker to change in today’s rapidly changing fluid needs.
    Bottom Line
    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

    A definite MUST for Nissan CVT vehicles
    By  JEFF,  a  Verified Buyer  from  Owen Sound  on  August 22, 2021

    Describe the issue

    After reading reviews, I went ahead and changed the trans fluid in our 2014 Nissan Versa Note that we recently acquired . It was developing a slight slippage during the warm up on light grades. Also slipping on a steep downhill grade. WELL! All symptoms completely gone with just the 2.5L Amsoil CVT fluid that I was able to replace,( a full fluid change is a real pain on these particular cars, and I am a licensed Auto Tech!) Anyway, do yourself a BIG favour and use Amsoil CVT fluid in your Nissan, and all other CVT equipped vehicles. I am totally amazed with this product.
    Bottom Line
    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
