Amsoil ATF available for 5R110!
Amsoil has just revamped the ATF line to include the Mercron SP spec, allowing Amsoil ATF to be used in Ford Torqueshift applications! Here is part of the release from Amsoil's internal magazine -
AMSOIL Synthetic ATF is recommended for the latest manufacturer specifications.
Automatic transmission technology has been quickly evolving over the past few years.
Six-speed transmissions are becoming more common, and automakers are demanding
higher quality, longer lasting transmission fluids to protect these transmissions.
General Motors, for example, recently introduced its DEXRON® VI specification.
Established to provide extra protection for 2006 vehicles equipped with six-speed Hydra-
Matic transmissions, DEXRON VI fluids are also recommended for transmissions built
before the 2006 model year. DEXRON VI represents a significant upgrade over previous
specifications. In order to minimize fluid degradation and ensure improved performance
in extreme conditions, DEXRON VI fluids require greater oxidative and shear stability,
foam performance and protection against pitting. According to GM, DEXRON VI
fluids provide more than twice the durability and stability in friction tests than fluids
meeting previous specifications.
Ford Motor Company, on the other hand, recently announced the retirement of its MERCON
® automatic transmission fluid specification, opting to promote its more stringent
MERCON® V specification that requires improved anti-oxidation, antiwear and antishudder
properties. Ford also introduced its MERCON® SP specification in 2004.
Designed for high torque six-speed transmissions, MERCON SP fluids have lower viscosity
requirements and more stringent cold-temperature Brookfield viscosity requirements.
AMSOIL Synthetic Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) exceeds the performance
requirements for domestic and foreign automatic transmission fluid applications, and is
now recommended for cars and trucks calling for DEXRON VI, MERCON V & SP,
NAG 1 & 2 and Nissan Matic J & K transmission fluids. AMSOIL ATF provides automatic
transmissions, power steering units and hydraulic equipment with excellent
lubricating protection and better performance over a wider temperature range than conventional
automatic transmission fluids.
Resists thermal and oxidative degradation
Ensures cool transmission operation
Provides outstanding low temperature protection
Improves fuel economy
Provides smooth shifting
Maximizes transmission performance and service life
Reduces maintenance costs
Offers extended drain intervals
AMSOIL Synthetic Automatic
Transmission Fluid is recommended for use up to 60,000 miles in severe service
and up to 100,000 miles in normal service, or according to the vehicle manufacturer
recommended intervals, whichever is longer. Drain intervals may be extended
further with oil analysis.
