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).

Great products

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.

Amsoil CVT fluid is like magic in my Mitsubishi

2017 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 Sedan. My first 30,000 mile CVT service and the original trans fluid was already brown in color. CVT was acting strange....jerking and slow reaction.
After reading reports about Amsoil CVT I decided to try it instead of factory Mitsubishi CVT fluid. It took 3.7 quarts for a service. All I can say is wow....anazing! It's like I have a brand new trans. In fact, my CVT works better now than when it had zero miles on it. I am SOLD on this CVT fluid. Absolutely amazing.

Great product!

I changed the CVT fluid at 100,000 miles with the Nissan CVT fluid. Now at 232,000 miles and out of warranty, I decided to try the Amsoil CVT fluid. It immediately got rid of a slight shudder on acceleration that had been there for a while. I'm very impressed with this noticeable, positive change!

never a doubt with AMSOIL

Hard to know exactly how this will perform long-term, but since I have 100Ks of miles using all manner of AMSOIL products in cars, motorcycles, ATVs, tractors, and small equipment, I also have no doubt this is a top notch oil and I'll likely never have to replace this oil in my Outback again, well maybe once more with only 100K on the clock. Oddly the 2011s had no recommended drain interval, which is funny since the drain and fill plugs are absolutely easy to get to. Not sure how/why you would never recommend replacing a fluid. Just under 6L is the amount you can replace in an Outback CVT. The peace of mind I get with AMSOIL products and the ability to have extended drain intervals is second to none.

No Surprises

With over 220,000 mi. on the original CVT fluid in our '04 Prius & no recommended change interval from the manufacturer, I thought it might be soon time for a fluid change. I was starting to notice a little slippage now & then. Drained & refilled with Amsoil & the CVT returned to smooth, quiet operation with no slippage. Not surprised, since I'v gotten the best results with all kinds of Amsoil lubricants for over 20 years.
