Transmission oil

What is transmission oil?

Transmission oil lubricates the gear systems in vehicles, such as the automatic transmission, manual transmission and differential. Transmission oil helps a transmission run smoothly.

What is transmission oil used for?

Transmission oil is a lubricant designed for use in transmissions, manual transmissions, differentials, transmission shafts and gearboxes a vehicle is equipped with.

In a vehicle’s gear systems, there is a lot of metal-to-metal contact, causing heat and wear. Transmission oil helps protect these moving parts from wear and heat damage by reducing friction and dissipating generated heat.

Why use transmission oil?

Inadequate lubrication can lead to abrasion, corrosion, scuffing and erosion of major drivetrain components. Such wear can compromise a vehicle’s performance, and ultimately lead to costly repairs.

It is important to use the transmission oil recommended by the vehicle manufacturer. In fact, using the wrong transmission oil can lead to poor performance or even damage to internal components.

What happens when transmission oil is not changed?

Transmission oil loses its key beneficial properties over time. A lot of metal-to-metal contact occurs in manual transmissions and other gear systems. Natural friction slowly wears down these moving parts and small metal particles gradually contaminate the transmission oil. These contaminants eventually affect the lubricating properties of the transmission oil, so if the transmission oil is not drained and replaced with some regularity, it shortens the life of the transmission.
