Q. How can AMSOIL Universal Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) with a viscosity of 6.8 cSt be recommended for DEXRON VI and MERCON SP with respective maximum viscosities of 6.5 and 6.0 and also be recommended for ATF+4 with a minimum viscosity of 7.3?

A. AMSOIL positioned the viscosity of the AMSOIL Universal Automatic Transmission Fluid in the middle of most of the specifications from many manufacturers.

For years original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) were primarily concerned with efficiencies at cold temperatures. Cold temperature performance of fluidity is measured by the Brookfield viscosity in Centipoises (cP) at -40°C (See chart 1). Chart 1 provides the maximum viscosity allowed at -40°C. This insures proper flow of lubrication to internal components at cold temperature for good lubrication.

As of recent, OEMs have begun to regulate the maximum viscosity of the oil. It is generally accepted that thinner oils improve operating efficiency. By limiting the upper viscosity, such as with DEXRON VI and MERCON SP, OEMs are trying to capture the additional efficiency, no matter how small it may be. The two newest specifications, DEXRON VI and MERCON SP, have a starting viscosity maximum of 6.0 cSt and 6.5 cSt respectively. Although AMSOIL ATF at 6.8 cSt has a slightly higher viscosity than MERCON SP and DEXRON VI and a slightly lower viscosity than ATF+4 (7.3 cSt), it does not negatively affect performance in any of those applications. With respect to MERCON SP and DEXRON VI, AMSOIL ATF fulfills the cold temperature requirements so the marginally higher viscosity of 0.3 to 0.8 cSt will only provide better protection. With respect to DEXRON III, MERCON V and ATF+4, our experience has shown that conventional oils may shear down to below 5 cSt during use. Additionally, DEXRON VI is recommended as a replacement for DEXRON III so the lighter viscosity for AMSOIL ATF is immaterial.

For outstanding performance in transmissions, power steering and hydraulic applications.

Resists Oxidation and Thermal Degradation:
AMSOIL ATF resists thermal and oxidation degradation better than conventional transmission fluids, protecting clutches, planetary gears, valves, pumps and seals from damaging sludge and varnish deposits. AMSOIL ATF helps prevent component overheating and ensures cooler, smoother transmission operation.

Provides Low Temperature Protection:
AMSOIL ATF outperforms petroleum fluids in low temperature fluidity. In fact, AMSOIL ATF offers twice the cold temperature fluidity required by current automatic transmission fluid specifications. AMSOIL ATF provides easier starting, faster warm-ups, smoother shifting and improved fuel economy.

Anti-Wear Protection:
AMSOIL ATF provides smooth shifting and long, trouble-free transmission life. In addition, the antiwear additive package makes AMSOIL ATF an excellent lubricant in other hydraulic systems. In tests designed to measure wear characteristics under severe service and high pressure operating conditions, AMSOIL ATF far exceeds the requirements of hydraulic equipment manufacturers.

Extended Drain Intervals:
AMSOIL ATF is a stable formulation that lasts longer in service than conventional ATFs. It maintains its viscosity, friction and lubricating properties for extended periods of time, even under severe conditions. AMSOIL ATF maximizes transmission performance and service life while reducing maintenance costs through longer drain intervals.


 

Applications:
AMSOIL Synthetic Universal Automatic Transmission Fluid is completely compatible with other synthetic and petroleum automatic transmission fluids. AMSOIL ATF is a universal, multifunctionalfluid and greatly reduces the need for specialized fluid inventories and the possibilities of misapplication.

Problem: AMSOIL INC. has been informed that some AMSOIL Dealers and their customers have experienced problems with their local Ford Dealership service department when bringing in the new AMSOIL Universal ATF for installation in their Ford vehicle transmission.
They have been told that:
A) You cannot put a Mercon V labeled transmission fluid in a Mercon application.
B) That you cannot put a Mercon labeled transmission fluid in a Mercon V application (this is true).
C) That you cannot put a dual usage labeled ATF product in the Mercon application or the Mercon V application. Since the new AMSOIL Universal Transmission Fluid is labeled dual usage, recommended for both Mercon and Mercon V applications, some Ford Dealership service managers are telling their customers that if they put the AMSOIL Universal ATF product in their transmission it will void their transmission warranty.

Answer: At least one oil companys ATF product with a Mercon V rating does not also meet Mercon performance requirements. This has apparently caused a great deal of confusion about allowing Mercon V ATF to be back serviceable in Mercon applications. The AMSOIL Universal ATF has been formulated to meet or exceed both the Mercon and Mercon V specification, as well as G.M. Dexron III and Chrysler ATF+4. It is fully supported through documented testing.

It is recommended for and can be used in ALL of the applications listed on the label. PERIOD. If someone is misinformed on this issue and actually denies a manufacturers warranty coverage because of the use of AMSOIL Universal ATF Fluid in one of the applications for which it is recommended by AMSOIL INC., the AMSOIL Warranty coverage would apply. The consumers transmission would be repaired under the AMSOIL Warranty. AMSOIL INC. and our insurance company will legally pursue the dealership or the manufacturer to recover our costs. AMSOIL INC. would not make the recommendations on our label, or issue this statement, if we were not completely confident of our position on this matter. While we cannot control what individuals say about this subject, we can and do insure that consumers can use our product with complete confidence and without risk.

Service Life:
AMSOIL Synthetic Universal Automatic Transmission Fluid is recommended for use up to 60,000 miles under severe service* and up to 100,000 miles under normal service* or according to the vehicle manufacturer recommended intervals, whichever is longer. AMSOIL recommends thoroughly draining the transmission and flushing with new AMSOIL ATF to achieve a minimum 90% purity of new transmission fluid. Drain intervals may be extended further with oil analysis.

* As defined by the vehicle or transmission manufacturer.
