Product Details

Product Applications

AMSOIL SEVERE GEAR® Synthetic EP Lubricants are excellent for severe applications, such as towing, hauling, steep hill driving, commercial use, plowing, racing, off-road use, rapid acceleration, frequent stop-and-go operation and high ambient temperatures.

Higher horsepower, towing and hauling capabilities of modern vehicles make turbo diesel pick-ups, SUVs, vans and delivery/utility vehicles especially prone to severe service. Other severe duty vehicles include light, medium and heavy-duty trucks, buses, heavy equipment, 4X4s, tow trucks, race cars, tractors, and motorhomes.

Product Description

AMSOIL SEVERE GEAR® Synthetic Extreme Pressure (EP) Lubricants are premium grade gear oils specifically engineered for maximum performance in severe duty applications. These state-of-the-art AMSOIL formulations feature an exclusive blend of high viscosity, shear stable synthetic base oils and an extra treatment of high-performance additives. AMSOIL SEVERE GEAR® Synthetic EP Lubricants maintain their viscosity for long-lasting protection against metal-to-metal contact. The proprietary AMSOIL additives form an iron-sulfide barrier coating on gear surfaces, providing the ultimate line of defense against wear, pitting and scoring. AMSOIL SEVERE GEAR® lubricants help prevent "thermal runaway" - a phenomenon caused by a lubricant's inability to control friction and increased heat under high-stress conditions. By controlling thermal runaway, AMSOIL SEVERE GEAR® Synthetic EP Lubricants inhibit rapid lubricant degradation and component damage. Equipment runs better and lasts longer with AMSOIL SEVERE GEAR® Synthetic EP Lubricants.

Advantages in Using AMSOIL's Easy Pack

Performance

AMSOIL SEVERE GEAR® provides performance beyond that possible with conventional gear oil. These AMSOIL custom products offer superior gear and bearing protection, better friction and heat reduction, increased efficiency and extended service life.

* Superior Film Strength
* Controls Thermal Runaway
* Rust and Corrosion protection
* Reduced Operating Temperatures
* Improved Efficiency
* Longer Oil, Seal, & Equipment Life

Temperature Extremes

AMSOIL SEVERE GEAR® EP lubricants excel in hot and cold temperature extremes. By design, they resist breakdown from high heat, preventing acids and carbon/varnish formation. Their waxfree construction also improves cold flow properties, improving fuel economy and cold weather shifting.

Service Life

For product service life in differentials, consult your owner’s manual or the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) to establish the application, NORMAL or SEVERE.

.
NORMAL
SEVERE
Cars, SUV, Light & Medium Duty Trucks Drain at 100,000 miles of service or according to the owner’s manual, whichever is longer Drain at 50,000 miles of service or according to the owner’s manual, whichever is longer
Heavy Duty Class 8 Line Haul Follow the OEM drain interval (miles or hours) for synthetic oil up to 250,000 miles or 3 years, whichever comes first. Otherwise, drain at twice the OEM interval for conventional oil.
Heavy Duty Off-Road Vocational Follow the OEM drain interval (miles or hours) for synthetic oil up to 120,000 miles or 1 year, whichever comes first. Otherwise, drain at twice the OEM interval for conventional oil.

For product service life in non-differential applications, consult owner’s manual or the OEM for either normal or severe synthetic oil service intervals. Where service intervals are unavailable, drain at twice the interval for conventional oil.

Gear oils should be changed more frequently when operating vehicles or equipment in dusty or dirty conditions unless the gear system is properly sealed and equipped with membrane type breathers.

Note: AMSOIL does not support extended drain intervals where water contamination occurs. Check and service the gear oil frequently when water contamination is possible.

Recommended for use in differentials, manual transmissions and other gear applications requiring any of the following specifications: API GL-5, MT-1, MIL-PRF-2105E, Dana SHAES 234 (Formerly Eaton PS-037), Mack GO-J, or the differential (hypoid) gear oil specifications from all domestic and foreign manufacturers such as GM, Ford and Daimler Chrysler. Can also be used in axles where an API GL-4 lubricant is recommended.

AMSOIL SEVERE GEAR® (75W-140) provides superior performance and replaces competitors’ 75W-140, 80W- 140 and 85W-140 gear oils. Use where these viscosities are required by OEMs and where maximum viscosity protection is needed for extreme severe-duty applications.

AMSOIL SEVERE GEAR® is compatible with conventional and synthetic gear oils. Mixing AMSOIL gear oils with other oils, however, will shorten the oil life expectancy and reduce the performance benefits. AMSOIL does not support extended drain intervals where oils have been mixed. Aftermarket oil additives, other than those specified by AMSOIL, are not recommended for use with AMSOIL gear oils.

AMSOIL SEVERE GEAR® is compatible with most limited slip differentials. If limited slip differential chatter occurs, add AMSOIL Slip-Lock™ friction modifier additive.

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 product

I have run this in my 2006 ram 1500 hemi 9:25 diff for 5 months in combination with the Amsoil anti slip with zero complaints.
Works great in cold weather(-30F), will be using this on all differentials in the future.

Signature products

Since 2005 I've been a dedicated user of Amsoil products in all of our autos and high performance BMW motorcycles (S1000RR and K1600GT).
Never have I had any issues using these products.

Great

Ive been running this in both axles for 112,000 miles. I dont have issues with kicking it in 4WD in extreme cold (no 4WD button/knob in this rig). The rear locking Eaton differential works reliably with zero noise. I tow consistently and I tap shift 97% of the time I drive to avoid using my service brakes which puts extreme stress on my drivetrain (bought truck new, truck has 125K hard miles, original factory installed rotors & pads are still on it and only the pads have worn by 2mm max). I drain & fill the diffs every 45K and I only get metal dust at the plugs, no flakes. So, I would say its working well.
