Product Description

AMSOIL Synthetic Manual Transmission and Transaxle Gear Lube (MTG) is a premium blend of the finest synthetic base oils and advanced, high-performance additives. It is formulated specifically for maximum protection in the most demanding manual transmission and transaxle applications where an extreme pressure GL-4 gear lube is specified, including those where high horsepower/high torque engines and towing or heavy loads increase transmission stress.

AMSOIL MTG prevents the thinning effects of mechanical shear. It maintains its viscosity and superior film strength for consistent, long-lasting wear protection. MTG excels in hot and cold temperature extremes that exceed the limits of conventional mineral oils. It protects against rust, keeps seals soft for long life, and is compatible with brass synchros for smooth synchromesh shift quality.

Ideal for NV-4500 Transmissions

MTG is a thermally stable, extreme pressure formulation that resists heat, oxidation, acid build-up and varnish. It is the ideal gear lube for high temperature applications, including the New Venture NV-4500 transmission, which retains heat due to its cast iron housing and is often subjected to heavy loads and high torque from turbo-diesel engines.

AMSOIL MTG is the replacement fluid for GM part #12346190 and Chrysler part #4874459 (Chrysler specification #MS-9070).

Ideal for Muscle Car Transmissions

The extreme pressure design of MTG reduces friction, heat and wear. It withstands the high horsepower and quick shifts common to muscle cars equipped with large displacement engines.

Ideal for Front Wheel Drive Transaxles

The advanced synthetic formulation provides ultimate protection for gears and bearings in front wheel drive transaxles.

Excellent for Service Centers

MTG is a versatile transmission and transaxle lubricant. It reduces inventory needs, is readily available and is cost effective compared to vehicle OEM-branded products.

Performance Features

• Reduces friction, heat and wear
• Superior high temperature stability
• Resists heat, oxidation, acid build-up and varnish
• Lasts two times longer than conventional petroleum oils
• Improves cold weather shifting

Service Life

Under normal operating conditions AMSOIL MTG will last two times longer than conventional petroleum GL-4 gear oils. Where the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) recommends synthetic oils, follow the OEM drain interval (such as NV 4500).

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 product and great customer service.

Put 7 quarts in my cummins g56 transmission after reading several good reviews of this fluid and i could not been happier only issue is i should have done it sooner. The truck is quieter and no issues with shifting at all. Dodges atf4 is not what mercedes says is the correct fluid for the transmission as this is one of the easily obtained fluid for consumers in north america to get. I will be swapping this into the axles when the time come for their service as well.

Not for high mileage trans

I've had good luck in the past with this product, but after putting it in my 296k mile trans it is harder to shift and makes more noise. I will have to switch to a synchromesh or try another product.

Not impressed

Put this in a 07 Pontiac vibe (as recommend on amsoil website), it worked great for about 4000 km but then ran into issues with shifting and gears grinding, switched it out to the severe gear oil and never looked back, way better performance now. Now I am sure this product would work great in other manual transmissions.
