Product Description

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 for CVTs throughout vehicle manufacturer-recommended drain intervals. It is Warranty Secure and will not void your vehicle's warranty. AMSOIL Synthetic CVT Fluid is a cost-effective, high-performance alternative to original equipment manufacturer (OEM) fluids.

Field Proven to outperform OEM oil's

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.

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.

Service Life

AMSOIL Synthetic CVT Fluid should be changed according to your vehicle manufacturer's recommendations.

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).

Amsoil cvt over Nissan

This is $5 cheaper than Nissan cvt fluid. I replaced my cvt fluid cooler with an aftermarket and started using this fluid. Very happy with it!

Excellent value

Could definitely tell a difference for the good and the shifting of my CRV and also the fuel mileage went up 1 mile per gallon Which means less drag on a transmission and great savings over the life of my vehicle.

cvt fluid

My dealer said I was wasting my money changing my CVT fluid on my 2010 Nissan Sentra as the fluid had long life with 166,000 kms on it, nine years of use. I told them I see a change in the fluid turning brown and gritty. I'm glad I did change it because what a difference, much smoother, no shutter , better response and I'm sure there will be a gas mileage difference. Thank goodness I listened to my son( Amsoil Dealer) not the dealership as I'm sure that it would have lead to a transmission failure in the future.
With my car I use only Amsoil products and should have known it was much better than Nissan NS-2 from the factory . My only regret was I didn't do it sooner.

CVT Fluid

I used this CVT fluid in a 2015,Nissan Sentra with 60k miles on it. I by dropping about 2.6 quarts at a time measured in a graduated paint bucket I was able to drain out the old fluid and add this CVT fluid till I was able to get 12 quarts into it at 2.6 quarts in each drop. till I had diluted the old fluid with new.
After just the first 2.6 quarts, the shifting had noticeably changed for the better and by the time I was done it was a dramatic improvement. Great product

Typical Amsoil

As is typical with Amsoil, this product is superb. Put it in my Jeep Patriot with a CVT, and the whine that they have almost disappeared.

Purchased this in lieu of the OEM Dealer Branded CVT oil, excellent alternative, car runs great, have about 5k miles on it now and no negative experience so far. About half of what the dealer cost.
