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
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.
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 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.
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
AMSOIL Synthetic CVT Fluid is recommended for belt- and
chain-type continuously variable transmissions requiring the
