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

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).

Best fluid for Dodge Ram With Nv5600

Been Mechanic last 10 years and I tow commercially part time, pull 8-16k lb campers, over quarter million miles on my nv5600 and looks brand new inside..I run 9 qts Amsoil synchromesh 5w-30 with pto coolers. I hated how truck shifted with factory fluid/pennzoil, so switched to Amsoil, about 400 miles getting amsoil worked in all gears and bearings, all my gears smoothed out, no notchy shifting, no double click like shift feeling,no issues going from 6th to 5th,much easier to speed shift it. Put 80k miles on fluid rated for 150k miles and I wanted to change it just to see how it looked after towing 8-16k lb travel trailers, went to drain fluid, came out looking brand new like I poured it out of a sealed new bottle of amsoil. Was more then pleased and happy to put 9 qts back in.

High quality

I have a 2008 Acura TL Type S with a 6 speed manual. It has a helical type limited slip diff built into the transaxle, which presents a challenge to transmission fluid. Other fluids tend to break down and cause bad synchro performance, but Amsoil synchro shift is up to the task!

Tremec Magic

I have been in motorsports for over 40 years, have never seen this much improvement in a fluid change alone. Removed Dex. III and applied Amsoil synchromesh unbelievable difference in the way my new (less than 200 miles on 450 HP street car) Temec 6 speed magnum shifts.

Improved/smoother shifting

I own a 2011 Civic Si Sedan, which all came with a 6 speed manual gearbox + Limited Slip Differential transmission.
Amsoil is one of the only synthetic products out there (apart from Honda's MTF) to offer an oil that's safe for the soft metals within a Limited Slip transmission.
On top of that, it made shifting even smoother than before, a noticeable difference.
I am very happy with this product and will definitely be buying again

Much better than OE

Changed the fluid in my wife's 2008 Honda Fit. Manual transmission has only 50,000 miles, but it's been in there for 10+ years. Transmission shifts easier and is quieter. This is the best product to replace your manual transmission fluid with.

Great Product for Manual Transmission

My 1994 Mustang uses Mercon ATF in the T5 5 speed. I was not happy with how notchy the transmission felt while shifting gears, a common complaint on this trans. I changed out the ATF and started using the Manual Synchromesh fluid. I had immediate results with quieter operation and smoother shifts. This product conforms to the specification by Tremec and since Tremec took over the T5 from B Borg Warner, it was a no brainer.
