AMSOIL Transmission fluid recommendations for Cars
and Light Duty Trucks
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-extremepressure fluids are used.
AMSOIL Synthetic Synchromesh Transmission Fluid protects gears and bearings in extreme
temperatures. It outperforms conventional oils and delivers outstanding performance from -40°F to 300°F. AMSOIL
MTF maximizes energy efficiency and resists the effects of heat, oxidation, sludge and varnish deposits.
Unlike its mineral oil counterparts, AMSOIL Synthetic Manual Synchromesh Transmission Fluid
prevents the thinning effects of mechanical shear for stable viscosity, superior film strength and excellent
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. AMSOIL Manual Synchromesh Transmission Fluid 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.
• Reduces friction, heat and wear
• Superior high temperature stability
• Resists heat, oxidation, acid buildup and varnish
• Improves cold weather shifting
Recommended for automotive and light-truck applications that
require synchromesh transmission fluid. Applications include manual transmissions and transaxles such as New
Venture NV T350, NV 1500, NV 2550, NV 3500, NV 3550, NV 5600, and Tremec T4, T5, T18, T56, T176, TKO500,
TKO600, TR 3450 and TR 3550. Replaces MTF-94 fluid for Land Rover, MG, and Mini Cooper. Replaces Honda Genuine
MTF fluid for manual transaxles and Texaco MTX fluid.Not for
use in engines, hypoid rear axles, limited-slip or wet clutch applications.
