Premium-Quality, Cost-Saving Alternative to Conventional ATFs
AMSOIL Torque-Drive Full Synthetic Automatic Transmission Fluid (Product Code: ATD) is engineered for outstanding performance in heavy-duty transmissions manufactured by Allison, Ford, GM, Mercedes-Benz, Voith, Volvo, ZF and others. It is recommended for use in on- and off-highway automatic heavy-duty transmissions requiring Allison TES-295, TES-389, C-4; Ford MERCON V; GM DEXRON III-H; Volvo 97340, 97341; various ZF TE-ML fluids and more. As a multi-functional fluid, AMSOIL Torque-Drive is ideal for mixed fleets of vehicles, meeting the most stringent heavy-duty transmission specifications and helping to eliminate compatibility concerns and misapplication. For a complete list of these specifications, please see our Product Details section below. AMSOIL Torque-Drive is Warranty Secure™ – it will not void your factory warranty – and is also backed by the AMSOIL guarantee.
AMSOIL Torque Drive eliminates the deficiencies common to all conventional petroleum ATFs, providing superior performance and protection against thermal and oxidative degradation, sludge and varnish formation, viscosity shear down, cold-temperature oil thickening and poor friction stability. Conventional petroleum ATFs also require frequent oil changes and reduce the effective service life of transmissions; AMSOIL Torque-Drive Synthetic ATF extends lubricant life and provides wear protection superior to conventional ATFs.
With its top-of-the-line synthetic base oils and premium additives, AMSOIL Torque-Drive ATF is formulated to exceed industry requirements. It offers excellent protection in temperature extremes, reduces operating temperatures during severe-service operating conditions, ensures consistent, smooth clutch engagement over the life of the fluid and controls clutch glazing and elongated shift times. With AMSOIL Torque-Drive ATF, vehicles stay on the road longer and unnecessary labor and maintenance costs are reduced.

Immediate Cost Savings
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 Full Synthetic Automatic Transmission Fluid extends lubricant life and provides protection beyond that possible from conventional ATFs. Immediate financial benefits are realized upon the installation of AMSOIL Torque-Drive ATF. Vehicles stay on the road longer, unnecessary labor and maintenance costs are reduced, and the return on costly transmission investments is maximized.
Prevents Sludge and Oil Thickening That Slows Down Shift Times
Hot operating temperatures are no excuse for poor transmission reliability. By delivering a slower-than-normal oxidation rate, AMSOIL Torque-Drive Synthetic Automatic Transmission Fluid helps prevent sludge that blocks small valves and varnish that restricts component movement, and reduces oil thickening that slows down shift times. AMSOIL Torque-Drive lasts longer and protects better than conventional ATFs, extending transmission life beyond that which is possible with conventional ATFs.
Prevents Transmission Wear
Transmissions operating under severe-service conditions can cause transmission fluid to break down, allowing damaging metal-to-metal contact and increased wear. 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, leaving only a thin base oil to protect vital transmission components, which promotes premature wear. AMSOIL Torque-Drive Synthetic Automatic Transmission Fluid does not contain VI improvers, which means no VI shear down, regardless of the operating environment. The exceptional film strength of AMSOIL Torque-Drive helps prevent wear and reduces operating temperatures during severe-service operating conditions, significantly increasing the transmission service life.
Smooth Clutch Engagement, No Rough Shifting, Prevents Clutch Glazing
Oxidation by-products destroy the sensitive friction characteristics of transmission fluids, resulting in the rapid degradation of shift quality. Because of its thermal (heat) and oxidative (oxygen) stability, AMSOIL Torque-Drive Synthetic Automatic Transmission Fluid ensures consistent, smooth clutch engagement with no rough shifting in heavy-duty applications throughout the life of the fluid. AMSOIL Torque-Drive ATF prevents clutch glazing and prevents elongated shift times.
Excellent Performance in Hot- and Cold-Temperature Extremes
Transmissions operate in temperature extremes. Because of its synthetic construction, AMSOIL Torque-Drive Automatic Transmission Fluid virtually eliminates oil evaporation in hot temperatures, delivering a better lubricating film than conventional oils for better overall protection of vital components. Oil consumption is also reduced and transmissions require less maintenance.
In cold temperatures, AMSOIL Torque-Drive ATF flows easily because it does not contain the wax that causes conventional ATFs to thicken. Cold-temperature fluidity allows for the proper operation of small, delicate, electronically controlled solenoids that affect gear changes. Unlike with conventional ATFs, transmissions using AMSOIL Torque-Drive have quick response times during cold operations and can be used immediately upon start-up.
AMSOIL Torque-Drive ATF is formulated to exceed industry requirements. It contains top-of-the-line synthetic base oils and premium additives, therefore you can feel confident using it for the extended service interval established by the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) for the performance specifications identified below.
AMSOIL Torque-Drive Full Synthetic Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATD) is recommended for use in 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.
