Product Description

AMSOIL Synthetic Synchromesh Transmission Fluid (MTF) is a premium quality synthetic lubricant designed to surpass the most demanding lubrication requirements of manual transmissions and transaxles where non-extreme pressure fluids are used.

MTF protects gears and bearings in extreme temperatures. It outperforms conventional oils and delivers outstanding performance from -40°F to 300°F. It maximizes energy efficiency and resists the effects of heat, oxidation, sludge and varnish deposits.

Unlike its mineral oil counterparts, MTF prevents the thinning effects of mechanical shear for stable viscosity, superior film strength and anti-wear performance. It protects against rust, keeps seals soft for long life, and is compatible with brass synchros for smooth synchromesh shift quality.

IDEAL FOR MANY GENERAL MOTORS, CHRYSLER, HONDA and OTHER VEHICLES

AMSOIL Manual Synchromesh Transmission Fluid is a higher quality, lower cost replacement for multiple vehicle manufacturer branded products. This premium synthetic formulation provides enhanced anti-wear protection and lasts longer in service. MTF exceeds the performance requirements of both manual transmissions and transaxles.

EXCELLENT FOR SERVICE CENTERS

AMSOIL Manual Synchromesh Transmission fluid is a versatile transmission lubricant. It reduces inventory needs, is readily available and is cost effective compared to vehicle manufacturer branded products.

Performance Features

• Reduces friction, heat and wear
• Superior high temperature stability
• Resists heat, oxidation, acid buildup and varnish
• Improves cold weather shifting

SERVICE LIFE

Recommended for 50,000-mile service intervals or longer (up to 150,000 miles) as indicated in the owner's manual.

HEALTH & SAFETY

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).

Great product

I have always used synthetics in my vehicles. When I started having problems with my trans in my Jeep Wrangler. I looked at a lot of fluids and found that more people had the problem fix/solved by adding Amsoil.

Best fluid for my Jeep JK -NSG 370 manual trans

I have 44k miles on my 2013 Jeep Wrangler, have changed the manual trans fluid every 15k or so and was not happy with how notchy and would ocationally grind. After installing this fluid. Smooth sailing.

Great Product

I bought my RSX with about 83,000 miles on it. It had no maintenance records for when the transmission fluid had been previously changed. I changed it with Honda MTF about 3,000 miles later after it had developed a sticky third gear( basically it would catch when trying to put it into third gear). This seemed to work for a bit but it started to catch and stick after a while. I had been using Amsoil Motor Oil for my previous and current car and I had no complaints so I figured with no maintenance schedule for when previous fluids had been changed, it would be a good idea to replace all the fluids with Amsoil fluids, (which I did, except for the Power Steering Fluid which Honda/Acura are very specific about using their own brand... or else). Anyways, after replacing all fluids, the biggest noticeable difference was my clutch fluid(replaced with Amsoil Dot3 Brake Fluid) which came out a nasty brown color and looked like it had been there for the life of the car, that brought the spring back into the clutch, and my transmission. I had a hard time believing that changing the fluid would make that much of a difference. It felt like little robots had gone into the transmission and lubed up the necessary gears because third gear became buttery smooth. And I was scared that this was something that would last for only a little while, a placebo effect even, but I've put on approximately another 3,000 miles and the third gear grind has become a distant memory. Now this might not be your exact experience but Amsoil has changed my car, it has given me a reason to shift. So yeah, you should try it.

Bearing noise seems to be gone with this oil. Will not know for sure tell summer heat and heavy load, but I'm a believer now.

Smooth shifting ahead

I replaced the OEM fluid in my Honda Civic Si for Amsoil Syncromesh as a precautionary measure.
If you own one of these you might know how the transmission is sensitive, this fluid totally smooths out shifts and keeps the action slick even in cold weather. Totally worth it.

tiny bit disappointed willing to give it time

I am slightly disappointed with the performance of my transmission in my 2012 Acura TL with manual transmission since I switched from the factory product to Amsoil. I have noticed a very slight hesitation in the second gear syncromesh, especially when cold. I am thinking that perhaps this fluid is not fully compatible with the factory stuff, and there is probably a little residual fluid from the manufacturer in the gearbox. Or maybe this stuff is so slick that the synchros can't get a bite. I am a maintenance fanatic, so I change the fluid every 15k, so perhaps the next service will render a better result.

Premium gear oil for 1995 Corvette ZF 6-speed manual trans.

This is one of the few synthetic oils recommended for the ZF 6-speed manual transmission in my 1995 Corvette. Lasts much longer and protects better than conventional fluids so the added cost is definitely worth it in the long run.

Better than OE Ford fluid for MT-82

I used this fluid in my 2014 Mustang GT (MT-82 Transmission). I was looking for a fluid that would perform better in cold temperatures than the OE Ford "DCT" fluid. Works great! Shifts are chunky and smooth instead of feeling harsh and overly snappy. In extreme cold (0 Fahrenheit) the MT-82 synchros can be grindy, but I haven't had as much bad synchronization since changing.

AMSOIL Synchromesh Transmission Fluid

The product I ordered was exactly as I ordered, once I added the fluid into my car I could notice a difference immediately with a lot smoother shifting. I have also noticed grinding has stopped when going through the gears at high RPM'S (2nd gear grinding was the main reason for me switching the fluid). Product also arrived very quick to my house. Overall great product!
