Product Highlights View Full Description

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.

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.

I would recommend it because I use it

Comments about Synthetic CVT Fluid:

Whatever I own, I take care of it, oil, tranny, brakes, etc.. and I do my research before using anything. What I have found is that this product not only improved the performance on my 2014 Accord Sport but also increased my average gas mileage by 1-2 mpg and my driving style hasn't changed. No it's not a true performance machine, but it is a great feeling to know that it is protected by a high quality product from Amsoil.

Great stuff to use in a subaru cvt transmission

By 

from Chicagoland area

Verified Buyer

Comments about Synthetic CVT Fluid:

Had a used CVT installed with 10k that developed a shutter at low RPMs. Tried subaru CVT fluid with no change. Instead of replacing CVT decided to try Amsoil. Changed CVT fluid 3 times, four quarts at a time with outstanding results. Shutter disappeared! Any future fluid changes I want to use Amsoil.

Made a big difference in CVT Transmission

By 

from Flagstaff, AZ

Verified Buyer

Comments about Synthetic CVT Fluid:

Used this Synthetic CVT Fluid to replace the OEM fluid in a 2016 Honda HRV and it performed better than I expected, compared to the OEM fluid. First, the Amsoil CVT fluid stopped the annoying "whining" and "over-rev'ing" of the CVT transmission. Second, the transmission shifted smoother, eliminating the jerkiness and delay of shifts that were "normal" with the OEM fluid. Third, transmission ran quieter at highway speeds and especially when shifting through gears to pass on the higway. Finally, the Amsoil CVT fluid resulted in gaining 2-3 MPG , during a 6,000 mile road trip, our average MPG went from 27-28 mpg, up to a surprising 30-31 MPG, for the entire trip. That fact alone was worth the switch to me.

Great fluid for CVT.

By

Comments about Synthetic CVT Fluid:

Seems to last a little longer than OEM Nissan CVT fluid. I can tell when it needs to be changed when it starts to whine at higher RPMs.
