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.)

Product Description
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.

Proven in 100,000-mile, Severe-Service Taxi Fleet Field Trial
To demonstrate its effectiveness in severe service, Signature Series Multi-Vehicle Synthetic ATF was installed in vehicles owned by a Las Vegas cab company. 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 100,000 miles, a transmission was selected for analysis. The Aluminum Beaker Oxidation Test (ABOT) is one industry-accepted method 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 reveals that after 100,000 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. As a result, it provides outstanding protection against sludge and varnish deposits that clog narrow oil passages and contribute to clutch glazing. After 100,000 miles in severe service, fluid analysis revealed Signature Series Multi-Vehicle Synthetic ATF contained 41 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 100,000 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 (< -60°F pour point). 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 100,000 miles in severe service, Signature Series Multi-Vehicle Synthetic ATF provides nearly identical friction properties as new fluid for smooth, reliable shifts.

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.

HEALTH & SAFETY
This product is not expected to cause health concerns when used for the intended application and according to the recommendations in the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS).

Hyundai Elentra

I finally installed the tranny cooler on the Elantra and flushed the old fluid out with lots of crap, no filter to change, yes, odd, and installed your stupidly simple awesome AMSOIL product. I noticed the quicker shifts and higher rpms, and the girls are noticing better gas mileage on the highway. I know, it should make no difference, but it does, they are getting 45mpg or better, on their trips to London and back..

So, another big thank you from a HAPPY HAPPY customer..

Re: Hyundai Elentra

Actually David, with the switch to AMSOIL ATL, customers often experience better fuel economy. It is not uncommon. However, based on your description of old fluid that was drained, it definitely sounds as though it was beyond its useful life. Replied by Tech Admin

Drain and filled

I own a 2011 Honda Accord V6. I decided to drain and fill ATF as part of annual maintenance.

A total transmission flush & fill can get very expensive. Since Amsoil ATF is compatible with Honda fluids, I decided to drain the ATF from the transmission drain plug (about 1 gallon came out) and fill it up with Amsoil.

I will do this every year when I do my oil change to keep the ATF fresh. This time when I drained the oil, it had a dark tint to it but as Amsoil concentration increases, the oil should look more red than black.

After the ATF drain and fill, I noticed the shifts to be crisp.
