AMSOIL Synthetic Manual Transmission and Transaxle Gear Lube (MTG) is a premium blend of the finest synthetic base oils and advanced, high-performance additives. It is formulated specifically
for maximum protection in the most demanding manual transmission and transaxle applications where an extreme pressure GL-4 gear lube is specified, including those where high horsepower/high torque engines and towing or heavy loads increase transmission stress.
Package sizes include:
1-Quart Bottles (case of 12)
Synthetic Manual Transmission & Transaxle Gear Lube is recommended for applications requiring a 75W-85, 75W-90 or 80W-90 viscosity gear oil with any of the listed specifications:
• API GL-4
• Chrysler MS-9070
• ZF TE-ML 02b, 17a
• MAN 341-Z2 (formerly MAN 341 ML)
• MB 235.5
Replaces GM part #12346190 and Chrysler part #4874459. Examples of transmissions and transaxles requiring a 75W-90, API GL-4 lubricant include certain models of Hyundai, Infiniti, Kia, Lexus, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Suzuki, Toyota, Volkswagen and Hino.
Examples of street rod and muscle car transmissions include Muncie, Borg Warner, Saginaw, Ford Toploader, Dearborn and New Process.
Towing, heavy hauling and performance driving create shock-loading conditions and elevated heat that threaten the performance and life of manual transmissions and transaxles. Making matters worse, horsepower, torque and towing capacities seem to increase with each new vehicle model year, increasing severity. AMSOIL Synthetic Manual Transmission & Transaxle Gear Lube is specifically formulated to reduce friction and maintain viscosity for long component and fluid life. It is designed to excel in severe-service conditions that exceed the limitations of conventional fluids.
Synthetic Manual Transmission & Transaxle Gear Lube is shear-stable and maintains its viscosity despite rigorous mechanical action. It provides a thick lubricating film and contains extreme-pressure additives to protect against wear in severe-service and shock-loading conditions common when towing or hauling. It resists thermal degradation and oxidation for excellent performance in high-temperature applications, such as the New Venture NV-4500 transmission, which retains heat due to its cast-iron housing and is often subject to increased torque from turbodiesel engines.
Synthetic Manual Transmission Gear Lube's friction-modified formula and excellent cold-flow properties promote smooth, fast engagement of synchronizers and gears. It protects against wear caused by the high-horsepower, large-displacement engines common to hot rods and muscle cars. It is formulated with seal conditioners to reduce leaks.
Synthetic Manual Transmission Gear Lube meets 75W/80W-90 viscosity requirements and exceeds API GL-4 performance requirements for many front-wheel-drive vehicles. Its excellent gear protection, extreme-temperature performance and durability promote maximum longevity and reduced maintenance costs.
• Protects against increased heat and pressure
• Outstanding cold-flow properties
• Protects brass synchronizers
• Excellent seal compatibility
• Inhibits rust and corrosion
• Long service life
Under normal operating conditions AMSOIL Synthetic Manual Transmission & Transaxle Gear Lube last two times longer than conventional petroleum GL-4 gear oils. Where the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) recommends synthetic oils, follow the OEM drain interval (such as NV-4500).
This product is not expected to cause health concerns when used for the intended application and according to the recommendations in the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS).

I bought this product for my 2014 smart fortwo and all I can say is wow.. This product is the best you can get, I never thought oil could make such a difference in a car performance. Although it is just common sense.

I have used this product sense 2008, when doing fluid change this past year in a 3500 Dodge 6-speed with lots of hauling miles it still looked like the day I put it in. I believe in Amsoil products, I wouldn't trust any other brands to keep things running longer an being able to perform 100% without worrying about mechanical breakdowns. Original transmission has over 250,000 miles now with no issues. Don't hesitate to buy a great product!

I have used this in my transaxles for years, smooth shifting with protection good enough for track duty. Recently added a limited slip diff to my transaxle and it performs beautifully with the amsoil gear lube. I will not run anything else.

replaced my 6 speed manual trans with this fluid. It shifts good and no noise.
