Product Description

AMSOIL Synthetic Synchromesh Transmission Fluid (MTF) is a premium quality synthetic lubricant designed to surpass the most demanding lubrication requirements of manual transmissions and transaxles where non-extreme pressure fluids are used.

MTF protects gears and bearings in extreme temperatures. It outperforms conventional oils and delivers outstanding performance from -40°F to 300°F. It maximizes energy efficiency and resists the effects of heat, oxidation, sludge and varnish deposits.

Unlike its mineral oil counterparts, MTF prevents the thinning effects of mechanical shear for stable viscosity, superior film strength and anti-wear performance. It protects against rust, keeps seals soft for long life, and is compatible with brass synchros for smooth synchromesh shift quality.

IDEAL FOR MANY GENERAL MOTORS, CHRYSLER, HONDA and OTHER VEHICLES

AMSOIL Manual Synchromesh Transmission Fluid is a higher quality, lower cost replacement for multiple vehicle manufacturer branded products. This premium synthetic formulation provides enhanced anti-wear protection and lasts longer in service. MTF exceeds the performance requirements of both manual transmissions and transaxles.

EXCELLENT FOR SERVICE CENTERS

AMSOIL Manual Synchromesh Transmission fluid is a versatile transmission lubricant. It reduces inventory needs, is readily available and is cost effective compared to vehicle manufacturer branded products.

Performance Features

• Reduces friction, heat and wear
• Superior high temperature stability
• Resists heat, oxidation, acid buildup and varnish
• Improves cold weather shifting

SERVICE LIFE

Recommended for 50,000-mile service intervals or longer (up to 150,000 miles) as indicated in the owner's manual.

HEALTH & SAFETY

Great product!

Purchesd 8qrts to go in my NV5600 behind my 03 HO cummins (got 8 because I added two FAST oil coolers and wanted a one quart over fill) I can't say exactly how much the fluid helped because I installed a new southbend clutch at the same time but it was a NIGHT AND DAY difference i used to FIGHT reverse SO HARD trying every trick in the book but read some forums saying the 5w30 syncromesh was the cure and it was!!!! Reverse is still stiff but that's just how those NV5600 are but now it actually goes into gear and all the forward gears go in like warm butter, worth the money hands down

Great product, high quality, proven performance

Great replacement product that falls under guidelines for hard to find factory fluids, improved shifting performance and smoothness, reduced temps in high heat and massively improved startup shifts in minus 20-30c weather
