Z-ROD® 10W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil



AMSOIL Z-ROD Synthetic Motor Oil is specially engineered for classic and high-performance vehicles. It features a high-zinc formulation to prevent wear on flat-tappet camshafts and other critical engine components, along with a proprietary blend of rust and corrosion inhibitors for added protection during long-term storage. Z-ROD Synthetic Motor Oil is designed to perform on the street and protect during storage.

Protects Flat-Tappet Cams
The lifters and cam lobes on flat-tappet camshafts common to classic and high-performance vehicles slide rapidly against one another, producing high friction and heat. The friction between the two components can eventually wear down the cam and affect valve operation, ultimately resulting in lost engine power and reduced efficiency. In addition, these areas are splash-lubricated rather than pressure-lubricated like other areas of the engine, which adds extra strain on anti-wear additives such as the zinc and phosphorus in zinc dialkyldithiophosphate (ZDDP).

AMSOIL Z-ROD Synthetic Motor Oil is formulated with high levels of ZDDP to protect flat-tappet cams, lifters, rockers and other areas susceptible to wear. Its high-zinc, high-phosphorus formulation provides the extra wear protection these critical splash-lubricated components require.

  • Engineered for classic vehicles
  • High-zinc formula
  • Protects against rust during storage

Provides Long-Term Protection from Rust & Corrosion
Z-ROD Synthetic Motor Oil is formulated with a unique blend of rust and corrosion inhibitors to ensure maximum protection during long-term storage. To prove its effectiveness, AMSOIL submitted Z-ROD Synthetic Motor Oil to the Standard Test Method for Rust Protection by Metal Preservatives in the Humidity Cabinet (ASTM D1748-10). This test evaluates the rust-preventive properties of oil under high-humidity conditions, similar to those faced by a covered hot rod in a damp garage. The metal coupon treated with AMSOIL Z-ROD Synthetic Motor Oil showed no signs of rust.

Rust
Based upon in-house testing of AMSOIL Z-ROD 10W-40 and a leading competitor obtained on 7/25/2019 in ASTM D1748-10.

*All trademarked names are the property of their respective owners and may be registered marks in some countries. No affiliation or endorsement claim, express or implied, is made by their use. All products advertised here are developed by AMSOIL for use in the applications shown.

APPLICATIONS
Use Z-ROD Synthetic Motor Oil in engines requiring either 10W-30, 10W-40 or 20W-50 motor oil. Z-ROD Synthetic Motor Oil meets API SL and earlier specifications, allowing for increased levels of anti-wear additives. ZDDP levels in Z-ROD Synthetic Motor Oil exceed the limits of API SM and newer specifications.

COMPATIBILITY
AMSOIL Z-ROD Synthetic Motor Oil is compatible with conventional and other synthetic motor oils. Mixing AMSOIL Z-ROD Synthetic Motor Oil with other oils, however, will shorten the oil's life expectancy and reduce its performance benefits.

Z-ROD Synthetic Motor Oil is safe for automotive seals. Aftermarket oil additives are not recommended for use with Z-ROD.

SERVICE LIFE
Because engines in classic cars, hot rods and other performance vehicles are generally modified, a universal oil drain interval recommendation for these applications cannot be given. Responsibility for determining the drain interval duration rests with the owner. As a general service guideline, the maximum drain interval for Z-ROD Synthetic Motor Oil should not exceed 5,000 miles or two years, whichever comes first.

    Excelent
    By  Piece of Mind,  a  Verified Buyer  from  Madison, WI  on  October 15, 2020

    Describe the issue

    Ever since I first used Amsoil I will not use anything else. I had a tired 1999 Jeep Cherokee and changed the 2 axles, transfer case, manual trans and engine over. Not only did it run a ton better I picked up 2mpg with just that change!!! That was back in 2005ish. Ever since my motorcycles and all cars/trucks run it. This particular formula is used in a 1972 Plymouth Satellite Sebring Plus restomod. It had a 408 magnum stroker and A518 overdrive trans. Living in WI it's usually parked from late October to late April. Having extra rust prevention properties really does give piece of mind the engine will be good when in hibernation. Wonderful product! Thank you, Jeffrey

    Z-Rod Oil
    By  Ratillac,  a  Verified Buyer  from  New Mexico  on  September 25, 2020

    Describe the issue

    The Z-Rod oil save from having to mix additives to modern motor oil for all our old cars. Not knowing the exact concentration of the additive (not listed on the bottles) getting the correct amount of zinc was always a guess. Z-Rod eliminates the guess work. Don't know if Z-Rod is really necessary but I have over 200,000 miles on several old flat tappet from the 50's and 60's with no wear and no oil usage.
    Bottom Line
    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
