Product Highlights View Full Description

A fuel efficient automatic transmission fluid recommended for GM, Ford and Toyota transmissions where lighter viscosity oil is required. Provides the same excellent protection and performance as AMSOIL Signature Series Multi-Vehicle ATF. Recommended for vehicles requiring GM DEXRON® VI, Ford MERCON® LV and SP, Honda DW-1, Nissan Matic-S and Toyota WS fluid specifications.

Bulletin From Filter Manufacturers Council (16k PDF)

Transmissions in commercial vehicles, SUVs, trucks and vans – particularly those used for hauling or towing – are subjected to severe-service operation and increased heat. Elevated temperatures cause fluids to break down, allowing damaging metal-to-metal contact and the formation of sludge and deposits. The problem is worse in modern transmissions with more gears, clutch packs and narrow oil passages that require clean, high-quality fluid to achieve maximum performance and life.

AMSOIL Signature Series Synthetic Automatic Transmission Fluid is specifically formulated to withstand the rigors of heavy towing, elevated temperatures and challenging terrain. It remains fluid in sub-zero temperatures and provides reserve protection during heavy use and even abuse.

AMSOIL Tech Tip: Transmission Fluid


Proven in 180,000-mile, Severe-Service Taxi Fleet Field Trial
To demonstrate its effectiveness in severe service, Signature Series Multi-Vehicle Synthetic ATF was installed in Las Vegas taxi cabs. The vehicles routinely encountered demanding stop-and-go driving loaded with passengers and cargo, while the desert environment presented extremely hot ambient temperatures, placing enormous strain on the fluid. Following 180,000 miles, a transmission was selected for analysis. The Aluminum Beaker Oxidation Test (ABOT) is an industry standardized test used to determine a transmission fluid's oxidation resistance, which is a good indicator of its service life. Testing by an independent, third-party lab revealed that after 180,000 miles in severe service, Signature Series Multi-Vehicle Synthetic ATF resisted oxidation longer than required for new fluid to meet the Chrysler ATF+4 specification (see graph). Internal components, including the valve body and clutch plates (pictured), were virtually free of damaging sludge, deposits and wear, confirming the lubricant's high level of protection for severe-service applications.

Protects Against Thermal Breakdown
Signature Series Synthetic ATF is formulated with high concentrations of antioxidants, making it naturally heat resistant. It provides outstanding protection against sludge and varnish deposits that clog narrow oil passages and contribute to clutch glazing. After 180,000 miles in severe service, fluid analysis revealed Signature Series Multi-Vehicle Synthetic ATF contained 83 percent of its original oxidation inhibitors, proving its long-lasting resistance to thermal breakdown.

Outstanding Wear Protection
Varying speeds and loads causes torque multiplication and extreme stress on gears and bearings. AMSOIL formulated Signature Series Synthetic ATF with high film strength and premium anti-wear/extreme-pressure additives to help prevent wear during severe service. In the industry-standard FZG Gear Wear Test, Signature Series Multi-Vehicle Synthetic ATF that had been used for 180,000 severe-service miles achieved a “Pass” at stage 12 – the highest stage. The results exceeded the Ford MERCON V and Chrysler ATF+4 specifications for new fluid, demonstrating the lubricant's long-lasting wear protection.

Cold-Temperature Fluidity
Cold, thick automatic transmission fluid lengthens shift times and reduces fuel economy. Signature Series Synthetic ATF is wax-free and delivers extraordinary cold-flow properties. It helps improve shift response, energy efficiency and warm-up times.

Friction Durability
Today's transmissions are smaller and must withstand higher horsepower and torque while delivering smoother shifts, all with longer fluid life recommendations. AMSOIL Signature Series Synthetic ATF is formulated with friction modifier additives that deliver outstanding clutch-holding capacity (static friction), torque-transfer ability (dynamic friction) and anti-shudder properties (slipping torque-converter clutches). Analysis reveals that after 180,000 miles in severe service, Signature Series Multi-Vehicle Synthetic ATF provides nearly identical friction properties as new fluid for smooth, reliable shifts.

APPLICATIONS
AMSOIL Signature Series Fuel-Efficient Synthetic ATF is recommended for transmissions and other applications that require any of the following specifications:

Ford MERCON* LV, SP; GM DEXRON* VI, DEXRON* HP; Aisin-Warner AW-1; BMW 83 22 0 142 516, 83 22 2 152 426, Dsih 6p805; Honda DW-1*; Hyundai/Kia SP-IV, SPH-IV, SP-IV-RR, NSW-9638, SP4-M; JASO 1A-LV; JWS 3324; Chrysler Mopar* P/N 68157995A, SP-IV; Mercedes-Benz 236.12, 236.14, 236.15, 236.41; Mitsubishi SP-IV, ATF J3, ATF-PA; Nissan Matic-S, Matic-W; Saab 93 165 147; Shell M-1375.4, M-1375.5, M-1375.6, M-L 12108; Toyota WS; Volkswagen/Audi G 055 005, G 055 162, G 060 162 ,G 052 540; Volvo 31256774, ZF S671 090 255

AMSOIL Signature Series Fuel-Efficient Synthetic ATF is backward compatible and replaces DEXRON III fluids in older GM automatic transmissions. (DEXRON VI specification supersedes the obsolete DEXRON III in GM vehicles.)

SERVICE LIFE
Normal Service: Follow the vehicle manufacturer's normal-service drain interval.

Severe Service: Double the vehicle manufacturer's severe-service drain interval.

Change at the vehicle manufacturer's recommended drain interval outside U.S. and Canada.

I drive a 2002 Honda Odyssey. This is a heavy van that's actually classed as a light truck. However, it has only a car-type transmission. My mechanic recommended that I switch to Amsoil Multi-Vehicle ATF which would better tolerate the high heat in this hard-working transmission. He also recounted knowledge of premature failures in transmissions similar to mine.

I switched to Amsoil ATF at 127,000 km (79,000 miles). I immediately noticed that the shifts were crisper and quicker. I now have 226,000 km (140,000 miles) on my van. The transmission continues to work like new. It has never needed any repair. The ATF always looks fresh: bright pink color and sweet smell.

I recommend AMSOIL ATF for its excellent service even in demanding applications.

I've never had any issues with Amsoil products and I've used them for a long time, nor have I had any issues with this Amsoil ATF fluid. Can Amsoil inform their customers of what constitutes synthetic oil to be considered "Full Synthetic." I was informed by the GoPure Power Company that processes oils and makes billet oil filters that manufacturers who make synthetic oil are only required to have 24% additives in the mix for an oil to be considered "Full Synthetic." That's very illuminating to know. If this is true, then synthetic oil companies save about 70 cents on each quart but double the price of the oil. There's probably a reason this information is kept from the consumer public. The Pennzoil vs Castro and AV1 court cases of the 90's shed some light on this. Anyway, I'll probably switch to a mineral oil in the future.

Comments about Signature Series Multi-Vehicle Synthetic Automatic Transmission Fluid:

I have a 2004 Honda Odyssey. I have been using Signature Multi Vehicle since the 2nd year of ownership with excellent results. I bought it new in 2003. Unfortunately I bought the newer Signature Fuel Efficient (blue cap) version ind installed about 6 months ago. Immediately I noticed a shudder. I switched back to MV (red cap) and have restored flawless operation. 170,000 miles on a Honda auto transmission. I owe that to Amsoil.

Comments about Signature Series Multi-Vehicle Synthetic Automatic Transmission Fluid:

The car has more than 235,000 miles, the shifting is a bit hard but I knew about it since is an old transmission, and it has been like that since I bought it in Feb of 2016, but is noticeable less than the fluid that it had before. I wanted to use Amsoil to protect it as long as I can own the car. Is an 2002 Subaru WRX Wagon, all original, engine, turbo, transmission, everything. And my goal is to go past 300,000 miles with everything original, all with the protection of Amsoil. The color of the fluid still looks cherry red, for the few months that I had put it in my car. Most of the driving has been city driving, stop and go traffic, and I cannot complain. Great product.
