Product Description

AMSOIL Synthetic Manual Transmission and Transaxle Gear Lube (MTG) is a premium blend of the finest synthetic base oils and advanced, high-performance additives. It is formulated specifically for maximum protection in the most demanding manual transmission and transaxle applications where an extreme pressure GL-4 gear lube is specified, including those where high horsepower/high torque engines and towing or heavy loads increase transmission stress.

AMSOIL MTG prevents the thinning effects of mechanical shear. It maintains its viscosity and superior film strength for consistent, long-lasting wear protection. MTG excels in hot and cold temperature extremes that exceed the limits of conventional mineral oils. It protects against rust, keeps seals soft for long life, and is compatible with brass synchros for smooth synchromesh shift quality.

Ideal for NV-4500 Transmissions

MTG is a thermally stable, extreme pressure formulation that resists heat, oxidation, acid build-up and varnish. It is the ideal gear lube for high temperature applications, including the New Venture NV-4500 transmission, which retains heat due to its cast iron housing and is often subjected to heavy loads and high torque from turbo-diesel engines.

AMSOIL MTG is the replacement fluid for GM part #12346190 and Chrysler part #4874459 (Chrysler specification #MS-9070).

Ideal for Muscle Car Transmissions

The extreme pressure design of MTG reduces friction, heat and wear. It withstands the high horsepower and quick shifts common to muscle cars equipped with large displacement engines.

Ideal for Front Wheel Drive Transaxles

The advanced synthetic formulation provides ultimate protection for gears and bearings in front wheel drive transaxles.

Excellent for Service Centers

MTG is a versatile transmission and transaxle lubricant. It reduces inventory needs, is readily available and is cost effective compared to vehicle OEM-branded products.

Performance Features

• Reduces friction, heat and wear
• Superior high temperature stability
• Resists heat, oxidation, acid build-up and varnish
• Lasts two times longer than conventional petroleum oils
• Improves cold weather shifting

Service Life

Under normal operating conditions AMSOIL MTG will last two times longer than conventional petroleum GL-4 gear oils. Where the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) recommends synthetic oils, follow the OEM drain interval (such as NV 4500).

HEALTH & SAFETY

This product is not expected to cause health concerns when used for the intended application and according to the recommendations in the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS).

Smooth shift.

I used this product in my 95 Geo Tracker, it shifts so smooth I can shift without using the clutch. Also the counter shaft bearings quite whining.

Good Stuff So Far

Bought this to replace the fluid in my 95 Jetta. I haven't changed the gear fluid in a very long time and it has over 200k miles.;. My friend suggested I do it and go with this stuff. Job was real easy to do and everything seems to be running great so far!

Like New Again!

I just finished a clutch job on a shop truck (97 Dodge 2500) that has been through more than one over the last few years due to a number of different drivers. Owner said this time was different and the truck was shifting like the day he drove it off the lot, the only thing I did that I hadn't done before this time was use Amsoil. That simple.

The best!

I know to always use Amsoil products. Don't know why ATF is recommended for my 2000 Mustang GT manual transmission. I want to put this in it instead.

My VW and my Cummins are shifting smooth as butter.

Currently using it in my 94 ram with the nv4500 and in my 04 VW TDI. It meets the specs for both vehicles manual transmissions, smooth shifting all around. Recommended to my friends and family.

Fixed shifting issues

Solved a common 1-2 shift grind in my 2012 chevy cruze. A lot of people with the 6 speed manual complain about grinding shifting between 1st and 2nd no matter how they shift. This product took care of that problem. No more grinding in any gear
