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.

    Used in a Subaru forester
    By  WESLEY,  a  Verified Buyer  from  West Virginia  on  January 07, 2023
    Subaru does not list a service interval for the CVT transmission. For North America cars. These transmissions must have the CVT fluid changed about every 40k miles. I have found that the amsoil fluid performs better and maintains its integrity much better that the Subaru branded product. I highly recommend it to get more service and less wear out of the transmission. The cost of a new transmission is over 6k. The cvt is almost impossible to rebuild unless you have a complete service shop and even then it will never be as good as new. Servicing the transmission is easy and far more cost effective than doing nothing as Subaru recommended.
    Bottom Line
    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

    AMSOIL CVT Fluid
    By  MICHAEL,  a  Verified Buyer  from  PA  on  December 09, 2022
    I heard a lot of good things about AMSOIL CVT Fluid on-line so I decided to try it in my 2019 Rogue Sport. Since changing the fluid the trans seems to shift smoother. Unprompted, my son who is the primary driver made the same observation. Looking forward to trying it in my other son's Subaru.
    Bottom Line
    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

    Great Company With Great Products!!
    By  WALT,  a  Verified Buyer  from  Upstate, NY  on  December 06, 2022
    Changed out the CVT Fluid on my Honda Civic at 27,500 miles and noticed a huge difference right away. There can be a big difference between what they call full synthetics and 100% synthetic fluids. Amsoil is a great company with some great products, and I've been using them for many years.
    Bottom Line
    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

    Best CVT fluid out there!
    By  CHAD,  a  Verified Buyer  from  Oregon   on  November 30, 2022
    I switched from the OEM CVT fluid to the Valvoline brand when I first got my AWD Nissan Rogue. It did okay but decided to try the Amsoil CVT oil. It made my car shifting much better. It ran smoothly and seems to run better than before. Definitely recommend it for any CVT drivers out there.
    Bottom Line
    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

    CVT Fluid - Amsoil vs. Honda
    By  RICHARD,  a  Verified Buyer  from  Tennessee  on  November 22, 2022
    The Honda CVT fluid is easy to change, and I have experienced no problems after using Amsoil for the last 3 service intervals (every 30k miles). The car has 160,000 miles at present and is running strong.
    Bottom Line
    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
