AMSOIL Torque-Drive® 100% Synthetic Automatic Transmission Fluid Review by Dave Mann

AMSOIL Torque-Drive® 100% Synthetic Automatic Transmission Fluid Description

AMSOIL Torque-Drive® 100% Synthetic Automatic Transmission Fluid is a high-performance transmission fluid designed to meet the demanding requirements of heavy-duty and high-stress applications. It is formulated with premium synthetic base oils and advanced additives to provide exceptional thermal stability, wear protection, and performance.

AMSOIL Torque-Drive® 100% Synthetic Heavy-Duty Automatic Transmission Fluid

For use in Allison, MAN, Voith, ZF and other heavy-duty transmissions.

Torque-Drive is a multi-functional fluid ideal for mixed fleets. It meets the most stringent heavy-duty transmission specifications, helping eliminate compatibility concerns and misapplication. Its advanced synthetic formulation delivers superior performance compared to its standard conventional counterparts.

AMSOIL Torque-Drive®️ Heavy-Duty ATF
  • Fights thermal & oxidative degradation
  • Combats sludge & varnish formation
  • Protects against viscosity shear down
  • Flows quickly in extreme cold
  • Delivers excellent friction stability
  • Provides long oil life

Wear Protection

Transmissions operating under severe-service conditions can cause transmission fluid to break down and allow damaging metal-to-metal contact and increased wear. Torque-Drive is formulated to exceed industry requirements. Its top-of-the-line synthetic base oils and premium additives deliver superior viscosity retention and high film strength to help prevent wear and reduce operating temperatures during severe-service operating conditions.

Friction Durability

Oxidation byproducts destroy the sensitive friction characteristics of automatic transmission fluids, resulting in the rapid degradation of shift quality. The thermal and oxidative stability inherent in AMSOIL Torque-Drive helps ensure consistent, smooth clutch engagement in heavy-duty applications throughout the life of the fluid. Torque-Drive maintains proper coefficients of friction, and helps prevent clutch glazing and elongated shift times.

Extreme-Temperature Performance

Hot operating conditions are no excuse for poor transmission reliability. By delivering a slower-than-normal oxidation rate, Torque-Drive helps prevent sludge that blocks small valves and varnish that restricts component movement, and reduces oil thickening that slows shift times.

In cold temperatures, Torque-Drive flows easily, as it does not contain the wax found in conventional ATFs. Cold-temperature fluidity allows for the proper operation of small, delicate, electronically controlled solenoids that affect gear changes. Transmissions using Torque-Drive have quick response times during cold operation.

Much better shifting

Changed about a third of my 03 f150's transmission fluid when changing the filter, saw much smoother shifting afterwards

Amazing in my Allison

2013 Chevy Silverado 2500HD Duramax Allison 1000 6 sp. 43,000 miles. 2nd owner. Shifts much smoother, seems quieter, and runs about 10 degrees cooler. Not sure if the original owner ever had the fluid changed on his baby but it’s a great peace of mind running Torque Drive in my Allison.
