Product Description

Engineered to eliminate deficiencies common to conventional petroleum ATFs, AMSOIL Torque-Drive provides superior performance and protection against thermal and oxidative degradation, sludge and varnish formation, viscosity shear down, cold-temperature oil thickening, poor friction stability, high component wear and shortened oil life. Automatic transmission operating expenses can be directly linked to transmission fluid quality. Immediate financial benefits are possible upon the installation of AMSOIL Torque-Drive. Vehicles stay on the road longer, unnecessary labor and maintenance costs are reduced, and the return on costly transmission investments is maximized. AMSOIL Torque-Drive is a multi-functional fluid ideal for mixed fleets of vehicles, meeting the most stringent heavy-duty transmission specifications and helping eliminate compatibility concerns and misapplication.

Wear Protection

Transmissions operating under severe-service conditions can cause transmission fluid to break down and allow damaging metal-to-metal contact and increased wear. AMSOIL Torque-Drive is formulated to exceed industry requirements. Its top-of-the-line synthetic base oils and premium additives deliver superior viscosity retention and high film strength to help prevent wear and reduce operating temperatures during severe-service operating conditions.

Friction Durability

Oxidation by-products destroy the sensitive friction characteristics of transmission fluids, resulting in the rapid degradation of shift quality. The thermal and oxidative stability inherent in AMSOIL Torque-Drive helps ensure consistent, smooth clutch engagement in heavy-duty applications throughout the life of the fluid. AMSOIL Torque-Drive maintains proper coefficients of friction, and helps prevent clutch glazing and elongated shift times.

EXTREME TEMPERATURE PERFORMANCE

Hot operating conditions are no excuse for poor transmission reliability. By delivering a slower-than-normal oxidation rate, AMSOIL Torque-Drive helps prevent sludge that blocks small valves and varnish that restricts component movement, and reduces oil thickening that slows shift times.

In cold temperatures, AMSOIL Torque-Drive easily flows, as it does not contain the wax found in conventional ATFs. Cold-temperature fluidity allows for the proper operation of small, delicate, electronically controlled solenoids that affect gear changes. Transmissions using AMSOIL Torque-Drive have quick response times during cold operation and can be used immediately upon startup.

SERVICE INTERVAL

Torque-Drive is recommended for use according to the extended service interval established by the original equipment manufacturer for the performance specifications identified above under Product Applications.

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).

Great high temp product.

I use this trans fluid for street and track use. During track use in Florida I see temps hovering around 250 F on my transmission.
During inspection of the fluid after the track day... it looks like new. I've been using Amsoil products for 25 years now and would NEVER use anything else on the track!

Used this in my allison transmission and it actually runs smoother. The best part about it is transmission runs about 20 degrees cooler than it did before.

Saved a transmission rebuild

I own a 1989 ford Thunderbird. The transmission was slipping I tried a chemical mechanic approach....nothing. Then a friend suggested a filter and fluid change with amsoil. It's totally different positive and smooth shifts. I even wrote to ford and suggested going with amsoil. Thanks for saving me a tranny rebuild.
