New AMSOIL Torque-Drive
Synthetic ATF Provides Excellent Protection for Allison® Transmissions
transmission owners are being held hostage.
They are being forced to
purchase a transmission fluid that is costing more money than they should be
spending. They do, however, have options.
Engineering Specification 295 (TES 295) for automatic transmission fluids.
When TES 295 products are used in Allison® transmissions and according to
Allison® recommendations as outlined in Allison® Service Information Letter
10-TR-99, Rev. B, the service life of these oils can be extended several
times that of mineral oils. This extended drain recommendation saves money
for Allison® transmission owners.
The only oil on the market, however, that is formally identified by Allison®
as a TES 295 product is TranSynd® Synthetic Automatic Transmission Fluid,
which happens to be sold by Allison® in partnership with Castrol®. Other
companies seeking TES 295 approval are faced with formidable obstacles.
Allison® has not made its stationary test stand available to the competition
and has not established formalized field trial protocol. Outside companies,
therefore, without unreasonably heavy investments in an ambiguous test
program, are locked out of the market. And Allison®, by positioning itself
as the only player, is able to charge exorbitant prices for their product.
As a result, Allison® transmission owners who want to benefit from the
potential savings realized through extended drain intervals are being taken
In response, AMSOIL® closely examined TranSynd® and developed a
cost-effective replacement product named
Torque-Drive™. Torque-Drive™ is a
premium synthetic transmission fluid based on the same chemical technology
as TranSynd™. This is supported by the infrared (IR) scan and physical data
comparisons included here. Clearly, the testing shows no measurable
differences between Torque-Drive™ and TranSynd®. They do, however, differ in
cost. Allison® transmission owners save money with Torque-Drive™.
The Allison® extended warranty states that Allison® will
only cover repairs in which the transmission had been operated with TranSynd®
or an equivalent fluid which meets the TES 295 specification.
is, in fact, based on the same chemical technology as TranSynd® and is,
therefore, recommended by AMSOIL® as a replacement for TranSynd® and for use
in all TES 295 applications. And because it is not specifically designated
by Allison® as a TES 295 product, the AMSOIL® warranty is in place to cover
all lubricant related failures.
All Allison® transmission owners would be wise to reevaluate their use of
TranSynd®, as well as their investment in the Allison® extended warranty
program. There is no justification for paying the high cost for TranSynd®
when an equivalent product is available for less.
Engineered to eliminate the deficiencies common to all conventional,
AMSOIL Torque-Drive Synthetic ATF 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 they
reduce the effective service life of transmissions. Delivering the ultimate
in oxidation resistance, wear control and friction performance, AMSOIL
Torque-Drive extends lubricant life up to six times* and provides protection
beyond that possible from conventional ATF’s. Vehicles stay on the road
longer, unnecessary labor and maintenance costs are reduced, and the return
on costly transmission investments is maximized. Immediate financial
benefits are realized upon the installation of AMSOIL Torque-Drive.
Thermal and Oxidative
Hot weather and operating conditions are no excuse for poor transmission
reliability. By delivering a slower than normal oxidation rate, AMSOIL
Torque-Drive prevents sludge that blocks small valves, prevents varnish that
restricts component movement and reduces oil thickening that slows down
AMSOIL Torque-Drive lasts longer than conventional ATF’s,
protects better than conventional ATF’s and extends transmission life beyond
that possible with conventional ATF’s.
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 shear
down regardless of the operating environment. The unmatched film strength of
AMSOIL Torque-Drive prevents wear, significantly increasing the transmission
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 assures
consistent, smooth clutch engagement with no harsh shifting throughout the
life of the fluid. AMSOIL Torque-Drive maintains proper coefficients of
friction, prevents clutch glazing and prevents elongated shift times.
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 ATF’s. Cold temperature fluidity
allows for the proper operation of small, delicate, electronically
controlled solenoids that affect gear changes. Unlike conventional ATF’s,
transmissions using AMSOIL Torque-Drive have quick response times during
cold operations and can be used immediately upon start-up.
AMSOIL Torque-Drive is recommended as a direct replacement for Allison® or
Castrol® TranSynd® Synthetic ATF in heavy duty, on and off highway automatic
transmissions manufactured by Allison®, General Motors®, Voith® and Ford® or
wherever the standards TES-295, C-4, Dexron® III or Mercon® are specified.
Examples of operations that benefit from using
AMSOIL Torque-Drive include
municipal or transit buses, garbage haulers, motor homes, delivery vans,
emergency vehicles, school buses, dump trucks, utility vehicles, cement
trucks, line haul trucks and towtrucks.
Where extended drain intervals are not specified by the original equipment
manufacturer (OEM), it is recommended that
AMSOIL Torque-Drive be evaluated
with oil analysis at standard OEM drain intervals or more frequently to
establish proper drain interval. Where extended drain intervals are
recommended by the OEM, follow that recommendation. This includes the
recommendations set by Allison® in document #10-TR-99 Rev. B, January 2002,
for TES-295 quality fluids.
* Depending on duty cycle, local conditions, oil
analysis and/or OEM recommendations.
