This AMSOIL automatic trans fluids brings us great testimonials. Even from a partial drain and add.. See the reviews. Enjoy low temperatures, smooth shifting, more power and longer life.
• Withstands the rigors of heavy towing, elevated temperatures and challenging terrain
• Remains fluid in sub-zero temperatures
• Provides reserve protection during heavy use and abuse
Amsoil Dealer note: The AMSOIL automatic trans fluids bring us the greatest impressions, testimonials than all others. Especially in older vehicles (20 to 65 years old) the driver never experienced the transmission the way it should have been operating in the first place. Plus as a bonus the parts remain cleaner and able to transfer power more readily. You don’t even need to do an entire flush – just drain out what you can and top off. (Change Filter if needed)
AMSOIL Signature Series Multi-Vehicle Synthetic ATF is engineered to outperform conventional automatic transmission fluids and exceed the performance requirements of most North American, European and Asian vehicles. This sophisticated formulation provides outstanding performance and protection in the severe operating conditions of today’s most advanced transmission designs.
Transmissions in commercial vehicles, SUVs, trucks and vans particularly those used for hauling or towing are subjected to severe service operation and increased heat. These elevated temperatures cause fluids to break down, allowing damaging metal-to-metal contact and the formation of sludge and deposits. You know the deal..
The problem is worse in modern transmissions with more gears, clutch packs and narrow oil passages that require clean, high-quality fluid to achieve maximum performance
and life. AMSOIL Signature Series Synthetic Automatic Transmission Fluid is specifically formulated to withstand the rigors of heavy towing, elevated temperatures and challenging terrain. It remains fluid in sub-zero temperatures and provides reserve protection during heavy use and abuse.
To demonstrate its effectiveness in severe service, Signature Series Multi-Vehicle Synthetic ATF was installed in vehicles owned by a Las Vegas cab company. The vehicles routinely encountered demanding stop-and-go driving loaded with passengers and cargo, while the desert environment presented extremely hot ambient temperatures, placing enormous strain on the fluid. Following 100,000 miles, a transmission was selected for analysis. The Aluminum Beaker Oxidation Test (ABOT) is one industry-accepted method used to determine a transmission fluid’s oxidation resistance, which is a good indicator of its service life. Testing by an independent, third-party lab reveals that after 100,000 miles in severe service, Signature Series Multi-Vehicle Synthetic ATF resisted oxidation longer than required for new fluid to meet the Chrysler ATF+4 specification (see graph). Internal components, including the valve body and clutch plates (pictured), were virtually free of damaging sludge, deposits and wear, confirming the lubricant’s high level of protection for severe-service applications.
The transmission’s valve body is clean and virtually sludge-free following 180,000 severe-service miles. The clutch plates demonstrated only trace discoloration and earned a rating of “good,” the highest possible, for deterioration/wear. These were NOT cleaned before the photos..
Signature Series Synthetic ATF is formulated with high concentrations of antioxidants, making it naturally heat resistant. It provides outstanding protection against sludge and varnish deposits that clog narrow oil passages and contribute to clutch glazing. After 180,000 miles in severe service, fluid analysis revealed Signature Series Multi-Vehicle Synthetic ATF contained 83 percent of its original oxidation inhibitors, proving its long-lasting resistance to thermal breakdown.
The results are uncanny. Even for racing teams switching. The advantages were not expected!
Varying speeds and loads causes torque multiplication and extreme stress on gears and bearings. AMSOIL formulated Signature Series Synthetic ATF with high film strength and premium anti-wear/extreme-pressure additives to help prevent wear during severe service. In the industry-standard FZG Gear Wear Test, Signature Series Multi-Vehicle Synthetic ATF that had been used for 180,000 severe-service miles achieved a “Pass” at stage 12 – the highest stage. The results exceeded the Ford MERCON V and Chrysler ATF+4 specifications for new fluid, demonstrating the lubricant’s long-lasting wear protection.
Cold, thick energy robbing automatic transmission fluid lengthens shift times and reduces fuel economy. This one is wax-free and delivers extraordinary cold-flow properties (< -60°F pour point). It helps improve shift response, energy efficiency and warm-up times. If you live in a cold climate you need this! Relieve the stress on these units pushing them down the road when the fluid is unwilling to cooperate.. This fuel efficient ATF will solve that major issue and you can smile at the other drivers knowing your car is the one getting the break from the cold.
Today’s transmissions are smaller (and lighter) so they must withstand higher horsepower and torque while delivering smoother shifts, all with longer fluid life recommendations. The Signature Series Synthetic ATF is formulated with friction modifier additives that deliver outstanding clutch-holding capacity (static friction), torque-transfer ability (dynamic friction) and the anti-shudder properties (slipping torque-converter clutches). Analysis reveals that after 100,000 miles in severe service, Signature Series Multi-Vehicle Synthetic ATF provides nearly identical friction properties as new fluid for smooth, reliable shifts. I mean you can’t lose!

Transmissions in commercial vehicles, SUVs, trucks and vans – particularly those used for hauling or towing – are subjected to severe-service operation and increased heat. Elevated temperatures cause fluids to break down, allowing damaging metal-to-metal contact and the formation of sludge and deposits. The problem is worse in modern transmissions with more gears, clutch packs and narrow oil passages that require clean, high-quality fluid to achieve maximum performance and life.
AMSOIL Signature Series Synthetic Automatic Transmission Fluid is specifically formulated to withstand the rigors of heavy towing, elevated temperatures and challenging terrain. It remains fluid in sub-zero temperatures and provides reserve protection during heavy use and even abuse.
OBJECTIVE: Provide AMSOIL Dealers with proper automatic transmission fluid and filter change procedures.
ISSUES: The use of automatic transmission flushing machines alone does not address the important tasks of changing the filter and cleaning the bottom of the transmission pan and magnet. TECHNICAL DISCUSSION: Flushing machines provide quick and convenient trans- mission fluid changes, but do not address transmission pan cleanliness or dirty filters. Removing the transmission pan allows the pan and magnet to be cleaned and the filter to be changed. AMSOIL recommends the filter always be changed with the fluid change to ensure the proper removal of contaminates.
