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.

    Great Product from Trusted Company

    I have a 2019 Honda CRV 1.5L with supercharger system. At 42K Miles, driving on highway start having a bit of type of noise. I check the tires pressure and the engine oil situation. We open the rear differential and transmission. We find a clean color liquid transmission original from Honda. Because of the little noise I decided to replace that liquid with new AMSOIL CVT. Only after replacing with this AMSOIL the noise is permanently gone.
    Bottom Line
    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

    Transmission Whine
    By  MICHAEL,  a  Verified Buyer  on  April 25, 2022

    I had the cvt transmission completely flushed on our 2015 subaru outback at my local mechanic that we always use. I read mixed reviews about using the oem cvt fluid and aftermarket fluids, but I wanted the best in it. Immediately after replacing the oem fluid with amsoil cvt fluid the transmission makes a loud whining noise while accelerating. I spent a lot of money on the amsoil fluid. Now it looks like I'm going to have pay my mechanic again to replace the amsoil with the oem fluid. Very disappointed. It went from perfectly quiet to annoying.
    Bottom Line
    No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

    This is the second time I've used this product on my 2015 Nissan Sentra. There was approximately 43,000 since the change. The transmission specialist indicated that the previous fluid was still clear. Transmission appears to be in good shape considering the horror stories I've heard about this type of transmission. There is over 115,000 kms on this vehicle and all is well. Will continue to use this fluid in 38,000 km at it's next regular maintenance schedule.
    Bottom Line
    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

    Put in a 2016 Subaru outback 3.6R. Prior to changing it was making a slight whining noise. That is now gone and the shifting is much much smother than OEM fluid. Approximately 36k miles.
    Bottom Line
    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
