Appreciate your consideration of AMSOIL. If you aren't aware of it, AMSOIL has a Preferred Customer program that will save you about 20-25%. :cheersXman said:That's my plan at 5,000 miles. I used Valvoline brake fluid already. Will use Amsoil in the engine and tranny. I haven't chosen a synthetic solution for the rear differential yet.
Whatever brand you chose, I would recommend a good synthetic in the tranny and diff. AMSOIL recently released a tech bulletin to its dealers that described a change in thought on what is considered "severe" service. Old train of thought was that open road trucking was severe. Newer train of thought is that passenger cars are actually more severe due to the lower fluid volume, tighter clearances, higher RPM, heat imparted due to limited airflow, heat imparted due to closer exhaust pipes. I personally run AMSOIL ATF in my Vette tranny and AMSOIL synthetic gear lube in my diff.should all the fluids, ie: brake, tranny rear diff be swithched to synthetic?
If it is AMSOIL you are looking for at the store, you probably won't find it.badtmpdgoat said:thanks for the info,,,running to the store,,,
Welcome aboard. :cheers04m6_ca said:I just performed my first oil change at 3.5K . The car will get nothing but Amsoil XL 7500 5-30 from now on. I would like to change the lubricant in the transmission and the differential with Amsoil too. I am hesitant to change the lubricant in the transmission for fear of poor shift feel( warm and cold weather). Has anyone done this, did shift feel, improve \ stay the same \ decrease?
IT SHOULD HAVE SYN IN IT NOW.IN REAR END .USES DIFF BR FLUID ALSObadtmpdgoat said:should all the fluids, ie: brake, tranny rear diff be swithched to synthetic?
