Today’s Complex Transmissions Require Premium Fluids

Now that I am retired I spend a lot of time out. In theses Covid times I mean either social distancing out on the water fishing for Walleye on the Columbia, or maybe I will make a run up the Snake. Chances are I could go for a rip through the sand dunes in my Polaris XPT and distance myself there. Sometimes for an escape from the house it could be just a drive in the Honda CRV to no place special.
The point I am making is it’s not just one Motor I have to Maintain. My work horse the heart of my fleet Chevrolet Silverado with is Duramax diesel is always towing. If not towing the Skeeter Walleye boat to the river. I am towing the Polaris XPT on the car hauler to the desert.  Then there is the Voltage toy hauler fully loaded to the Oregon Coast and it has an Onan generator. All of these vehicles and trailers need maintenance. Whether it be oil changes, oil filters, air filters, gear oil, or just grease for the bearings. My one stop shop for all of these items is here.

Transmissions Require Premium Fluids

The complexity of today’s automatic transmissions can baffle even seasoned technicians. Modern transmissions feature more gears, clutch packs and narrow oil passageways that require a steady supply of high-quality fluid. Without it, performance suffers and failure can ensue, leading to thousands of dollars in repairs.

To make matters worse, towing and hauling capacities continue to increase despite transmissions often using less fluid than their predecessors. Maximizing transmission performance and longevity requires using premium synthetic fluids.

“The fluid doesn’t just lubricate, it acts as a hydraulic fluid to enable shifting,” said Matt Erickson, AMSOIL Product Manager, Passenger Car. “Fluids that oxidize can result in damaging sludge that clogs fluid passages and results in poor performance. Transmission fluid is also exposed to high levels of shearing as it is forced between gear teeth. This can quickly break down an inferior fluid, causing viscosity loss and reduced wear protection.”

To demonstrate its robust nature in extreme environments, AMSOIL Signature Series Synthetic ATF was installed in a Las Vegas taxi cab that was operated for more than 180,000 miles on a single fluid change. Signature Series ATF delivered outstanding resistance to sludge and wear despite the intense desert heat and severity of operation. It helps motorists safely harness their vehicle’s full potential and delivers reserve protection against the devastating effects of heat.
