Torque-Drive® Synthetic Automatic Transmission Fluid



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.

Wear Protection
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 operating conditions.

Friction Durability
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.

PRODUCT APPLICATIONS
AMSOIL recommends Torque-Drive for use in heavy-duty, on-and off-highway automatic transmissions requiring any of the following specifications: Allison TES-295, TES-389, C-4; Ford MERCON V; GM DEXRON III-H; Isuzu SCS; MAN 339 Type V-1, 339 Type V-2, 339 Type Z-1, 339 Type Z-2, 339 Type Z-3, 339F; MB 236.91, 236.10; Voith 55.6335, 55.6336; Volvo 97340, 97341; ZF TE-ML 03D, TE-ML 04D, TE-ML 14A, TE-ML 14B, TEML 14C, TE-ML 17C, TE-ML 20B, TE-ML 20C.

Examples of operations that benefit from using AMSOIL Torque-Drive include municipal or transit buses, motor coaches, garbage haulers, motor homes, delivery vans, emergency vehicles, school buses, dump trucks, utility vehicles, cement trucks, line haul trucks, tow trucks and more.

SERVICE INTERVAL
Torque-Drive is recommended for use according to the extended service interval established by the original equipment manufacturer for the performance specifications identified above under Product Applications.

    Amazing in my Allison
    By  JEREMIAH,  a  Verified Buyer  from  SE PA  on  October 13, 2022
    2013 Chevy Silverado 2500HD Duramax Allison 1000 6 sp. 43,000 miles. 2nd owner. Shifts much smoother, seems quieter, and runs about 10 degrees cooler. Not sure if the original owner ever had the fluid changed on his baby but it’s a great peace of mind running Torque Drive in my Allison.
    Bottom Line
    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

    Torque Drive
    By  THOMAS,  a  Verified Buyer  on  July 23, 2022
    I run both my trucks on Amsoil products. I recently purchased a used Duramax to pull my fifth wheel camper. Not knowing recent maintenance intervals, I decided to do a full Amsoil change over. Reading blogs about what fluid to run in an Allison transmission is quite entertaining and controversial. Amsoil has always done me well, so I decided to go with the Torque Drive. My transmission shifts are unnoticeable when not pulling and firm and crisp while pulling my trailer in tow/haul mode. I was really considering having my transmission rebuilt, but now it is working so flawlessly, I’m going to keep running it as is.
    Bottom Line
    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

    Great for T56 manual 6 speeds
    By  BRUCE,  a  Verified Buyer  on  May 04, 2022
    I’ve used this for years in my CTSV manual transmission and especially works great for a slightly worn transmission. Made it shift like new. Great protection for the track and strip never had an issue. 10 years strong.
    Bottom Line
    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

    Torque-Drive in my Allison Transmission
    By  GIOVANNI,  a  Verified Buyer  from  Alberta   on  April 17, 2022
    The dealership had serviced my Allison Transmission at about the 100K km mark. They had used Dextron VI GM transmission oil. That oil was in service for about 90K km. I was noticing that the transmission operating temp was running much higher than I was accustomed to. Even after cleaning the transmission oil cooler. When towing it got up to 93° C or higher. Not towing it would get up to 75°C. With Torque- Drive, which is the correct oil for the Allison. The oil temperature barely gets over 30°C when not towing. Which is how it operated when the transmission was new. I’m looking forward the pulling my large fifth wheel. The transmission should be worry free.
    Bottom Line
    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

    Best there is.
    By  JOHN,  a  Verified Buyer  from  Southern Louisiana   on  March 29, 2022
    I bought my 2008 gmc 2500 duramax z71 new. While i waited for it to come it, i researched every oil there was and amsoil was far above everything else. At 2500 miles, i changed every fluid it had. I have 400,000 miles on the truck now, not one component has been opened or needed work from wear. Including the transmission. Its all i run in everything i own. There website is second to known. You put in what you have, from four wheelers, to motorcycles to trucks, and they have the exact amount and type you need from front to back. I can't imagine ever not using their products.
    Bottom Line
    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

    Smooth Shifting
    By  JACOB,  a  Verified Buyer  from  Texas  on  March 24, 2022
    I installed an upgraded 4r100 transmission in my f250 and changed the fluid for the first time after the builder's recommended service interval. After flushing all the fluid from the system and replacing with amsoil fluid, the truck shifts smooth and firm. I am a buy once cry once sort of person and I look forward to a long transmission life thanks to amsoil.
    Bottom Line
    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

    Allison Transmission
    By  Isaac,  a  Verified Buyer  from  Colorado  on  February 25, 2022
    Amsoil has been recommended by many people and I decided to give it a try on our company vehicles. So far the transmissions are running about 40 degrees cooler.
    Bottom Line
    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
