Product Description

Engineered to eliminate deficiencies common to all 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. Poor-quality oils need frequent changes and reduce the effective service life of transmissions. Delivering maximum oxidation resistance, wear control and friction performance, AMSOIL Torque-Drive extends lubricant life and provides protection beyond that possible from conventional ATFs. 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.

THERMAL AND OXIDATIVE STABILITY

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. AMSOIL Torque-Drive lasts longer than conventional ATFs, protects better than conventional ATFs and extends transmission life beyond that possible with conventional ATFs.

SHEAR STABLE

Conventional automatic transmission fluids use petroleum oils with viscosity index (VI) improvers added to increase the oil's operational temperature range. Over time, VI improvers shear down, promoting premature wear by leaving only a thin base oil to protect vital transmission components. AMSOIL Torque-Drive does not contain VI improvers, which means no VI improver shear-down regardless of the operating environment. The exceptional film strength of AMSOIL Torque-Drive greatly reduces wear, promoting longer transmission service life.

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 with no harsh shifting 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

Transmissions operate in temperature extremes. In hot temperatures, the synthetic construction of AMSOIL Torque-Drive virtually eliminates oil evaporation and delivers a better lubricating film than conventional oils for better overall protection of vital components. Oil consumption is reduced and transmissions require less maintenance.

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. Unlike conventional ATFs, 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).

Not as good as it used to be.

I put this in my Tremec 6060 and it made it shift like a tractor. Put my regular fluid back in it and it works fine now.

Only gonna use this from now on

I have an 03 GMC 3500 dually will a zf6 transmission. Was using everything from OEM to other recommend brands. Then a friend recommended to use torque drive. I have 16k miles on it and still haven't boiled the oil yet from hauling 23k+

Reliable and long lasting transmission fluid

Use in my ZF S6-650 6 speed manual Transmission that gets worked pulling small equipment and dumptrailer loads, over passes and in mountainous terrain. So far so good. Switched over at 70,000 miles and just changed at 150,000 to freshin up fluids.

I will only buy Amsoil

There is so much time spent on testing this product,That's why I feel that I can completely rely on the Amsoil line of products.

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!
