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).

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!

I would buy it again

I greatly appreciate having a quality product like yours available, I have used it in my 2002 F250 Trans tucked behind a 7.3 diesel. It now has 217 300 plus miles on it , when I had Tri-Star Ford change my fluid and filter in 01 of 17 , when I went to pick it up the mechanic told me that there was no visible wear nor any metal particles on the magnet. he and I attribute that to Amzoil trans fluid, thank you ; Richard

Highly recommend.

Great fluid for the Allison 1000. 300k km on my '05 Duramax & hasn't slipped yet.

Cool Runner.

I be installing this trans fluid in a 2001 Silverado 8.1 that has an allison . This is a 1ton
Dually that pulls a fifth wheel travel trailer. Looking forward to it running cooler and smoother. I have watched several you tube videos on how to change it So as soon as it's not cold outside I'll give it a try.

Amsoil fluids and filters

I became an Amsoil preferred customer after first finding a dealer and buying the product for a year for all my 3 vehicles. I liked it so much i recommended it to my friends and family. My three sons all use Amsoil and they contact me in AZ. I place the order for them on line, have it shipped to them and they pay dear old dad for his experience. I have been successful teaching my sons and grandsons the value of preventative maintenance and using Amsoil products.

Used this in my allison transmission and it actually runs smoother. The best part about it is transmission runs about 20 degrees cooler than it did before.

Saved a transmission rebuild

I own a 1989 ford Thunderbird. The transmission was slipping I tried a chemical mechanic approach....nothing. Then a friend suggested a filter and fluid change with amsoil. It's totally different positive and smooth shifts. I even wrote to ford and suggested going with amsoil. Thanks for saving me a tranny rebuild.
