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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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).

I switched to this oil at 80.000 miles trans temp dropped 20 deg. And at 260.000 miles my pan gasket leaked so i dropped the pan to change gasket and filter the inside of pan was so clean it looked like it was new off the shelf and the fluid was as nice as the day i put it in new simply amazing and still using same fluid to this day almost 300.000 miles i attribute my trucks power and drive train in such great shape to amsoil and thank you
