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.
To demonstrate its effectiveness in severe service, Signature Series Multi-Vehicle Synthetic ATF was installed in Las Vegas taxi cabs. 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 180,000 miles, a transmission was selected for analysis. The Aluminum Beaker Oxidation Test (ABOT) is an industry standardized test 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 revealed that after 180,000 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.
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.
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 automatic transmission fluid lengthens shift times and reduces fuel economy. Signature Series Synthetic ATF is wax-free and delivers extraordinary cold-flow properties. It helps improve shift response, energy efficiency and warm-up times.
Today's transmissions are smaller and must withstand higher horsepower and torque while delivering smoother shifts, all with longer fluid life recommendations. AMSOIL Signature Series Synthetic ATF is formulated with friction modifier additives that deliver outstanding clutch-holding capacity (static friction), torque-transfer ability (dynamic friction) and anti-shudder properties (slipping torque-converter clutches). Analysis reveals that after 180,000 miles in severe service, Signature Series Multi-Vehicle Synthetic ATF provides nearly identical friction properties as new fluid for smooth, reliable shifts.
Normal Service: Follow the vehicle manufacturer's normal-service drain

I was using Mr. Transmission synthetic ATF before. Immediately after the switch over, I noticed way smoother shifts, quieter operation and even save 5% gas. Since this is the signature series ATF, I plan to keep it running longer. So, it is actually cheaper in the long run.
Re: Best ATF money can buy
Atam has expressed a valid point. The reserve protection and double severe service drain interval of AMSOIL Signature Series ATF actually makes the product less expensive to use. There have been reports from other enthusiasts on fuel savings experienced, which can be greater when AMSOIL synthetic motor oil is used as well.Replied by Tech Admin
Thank you Atam.

A while back it came time to change the fluid in the transmission of my Buick. I dropped into Parts Source and purchased Mobil 1 semi-synthetic trans fluid, and soon changed the fluid and filter. About a year later on a very hot summer day, I was taking my son to a camp in Dorchester. In the stop and go traffic, the transmission began missing shifts, making harsh shifts, slipping. I thought it was a goner. Changing fluid and filter is inexpensive when compared to replacing a transmission, so I searched and researched, and came across AMSOIL ATF. I was very impressed with the proposed performance and longevity. These features convinced me to give it a try. Well it's four years later, and still have the same AMSOIL ATF in the transmission. No issues, shifts and performs as one would expect. Thank you AMSOIL.

Hauled 6 beef this morning - 14,000lbs incl trailer - about 3 hwy hours in 26C/80F - transmission temp gauge in the '92 D250 was

This, folks is what I'm talking about when I say I have stuck with AMSOIL premium ATF for a couple decades :-)

This is the only ATF I run in 2 torqueflites and 3 NP series transfer cases.
Shifting into 4 low has never been better cold or hot.

Thanks as always Haldimand Synthetics !

The Best, So Far.
For the first time, I used 5w30 OE in my 2004 Corvette ZO6,. This is the most wear-resistant oil, EVER! This isn't even Amsoil's best motor oil product. In 1995, I saw an analysis printout (Hewlett-Packard Gas Chromatograph) of Amsoil 15w40 Synthetic. The sample was taken from a Dodge/Cummins engine that had 88,000 mi. on it. After 5,000 mi., the oil had broken down by 2%!!! 98% of its lubricating properties were still present. The analysis din not determine viscosity of suspension. Forget about it! 98% after 5,ooo mi!? That's Amsoil!
