AMSOIL recommends Torque-Drive® for use in all automatic transmissions requiring any of the
following specifications: Allison® TES 295, TES 389, C-4; Voith® 55.6336.XX; ZF® TE-ML 14C; GM Dexron®
III; Ford Mercon®; Mercedes-Benz® 236.10
Engineered to eliminate deficiencies common to all conventional petroleum ATFs, AMSOIL Torque-Drive
provides superior performance and protection against thermal and oxidative degradation, sludge and
varnish formation, viscosity shear down, cold-temperature oil thickening, poor friction stability, high
component wear and shortened oil life. Automatic transmission operating expenses can be directly linked
to transmission fluid quality. Poor-quality oils need frequent changes and reduce the effective service
life of transmissions. Delivering maximum oxidation resistance, wear control and friction performance,
AMSOIL Torque-Drive extends lubricant life and provides protection beyond that possible from
conventional ATFs. Immediate financial benefits are possible upon the installation of AMSOIL
Torque-Drive. Vehicles stay on the road longer, unnecessary labor and maintenance costs are reduced,
and the return on costly transmission investments is maximized.
THERMAL AND OXIDATIVE STABILITY
Hot operating conditions are no excuse for poor transmission reliability. By delivering a
slower-than-normal oxidation rate, AMSOIL Torque-Drive helps prevent sludge that blocks small valves
and varnish that restricts component movement, and reduces oil thickening that slows shift times.
AMSOIL Torque-Drive lasts longer than conventional ATFs, protects better than conventional ATFs and
extends transmission life beyond that possible with conventional ATFs.
Conventional automatic transmission fluids use petroleum oils with viscosity index (VI) improvers added
to increase the oil's operational temperature range. Over time, VI improvers shear down, promoting
premature wear by leaving only a thin base oil to protect vital transmission components. AMSOIL
Torque-Drive does not contain VI improvers, which means no VI improver shear-down regardless of the
operating environment. The exceptional film strength of AMSOIL Torque-Drive greatly reduces wear,
promoting longer transmission service life.
Oxidation by-products destroy the sensitive friction characteristics of transmission fluids, resulting
in the rapid degradation of shift quality. The thermal and oxidative stability inherent in AMSOIL
Torque-Drive helps ensure consistent, smooth clutch engagement with no harsh shifting throughout the
life of the fluid. AMSOIL Torque-Drive maintains proper coefficients of friction, and helps prevent
clutch glazing and elongated shift times.
EXTREME TEMPERATURE PERFORMANCE
Transmissions operate in temperature extremes. In hot temperatures, the synthetic construction of
AMSOIL Torque-Drive virtually eliminates oil evaporation and delivers a better lubricating film than
conventional oils for better overall protection of vital components. Oil consumption is reduced and
transmissions require less maintenance.
In cold temperatures, AMSOIL Torque-Drive easily flows, as it does not contain the wax found in
conventional ATFs. Cold-temperature fluidity allows for the proper operation of small, delicate,
electronically controlled solenoids that affect gear changes. Unlike conventional ATFs, transmissions
using AMSOIL Torque-Drive have quick response times during cold operation and can be used immediately
AMSOIL recommends Torque-Drive for use in heavy-duty, on- and off-highway automatic transmissions
requiring any of the following specifications: Allison® TES 295, TES 389, C-4; Voith® 55.6336.XX; ZF®
TE-ML 14C; GM Dexron® III; Ford Mercon®; Mercedes-Benz® 236.10. Examples of operations that benefit
from using AMSOIL Torque-Drive include municipal or transit buses, motor coaches, garbage haulers,
motor homes, delivery vans, emergency vehicles, school buses, dump trucks, utility vehicles, cement
trucks, line haul trucks and tow trucks. Torque-Drive is designed to replace TranSynd® brand synthetic
automatic transmission fluid for use in Allison® transmissions.
Torque-Drive is recommended for use according to the extended service interval established by the
original equipment manufacturer for the performance specifications identified above under Product
