Continuously variable transmissions (CVTs) utilize a belt or chain to produce an infinite number of gear ratios between two variable diameter pulleys. CVTs require a particular transmission fluid with specific frictional qualities that ensure the belt or chain does not slip between the pulleys. AMSOIL Synthetic CVT Fluid features superior metal-to-metal friction qualities, as well as superior protection and performance. It complies with the manufacturer's warranty and is a premium, high-performance alternative to the manufacturer's fluids.
Excellent Frictional Properties
Because the CVT fluid is used to avoid slipping, the metal-to-metal frictional characteristics between the CVT's belt/chain contact and the pulleys are critical. AMSOIL Synthetic CVT Fluid has excellent metal-to-metal friction properties, which helps to avoid belt and chain slippage and increase transmission life.
Outstanding Wear Protection
AMSOIL CVT Fluid is a long-lasting product. It effectively resists wear to the transmission's key parts in both normal and harsh service, assisting in the transmission's long life.
The thermally stable formulation of AMSOIL CVT Fluid protects against the negative effects of thermal breakdown in high temperatures. It prevents varnish from forming, which can compromise transmission performance and longevity.
Superior Wet-Clutch Performance
AMSOIL Synthetic CVT Fluid has enhanced wet-clutch performance, resulting in increased anti-shudder durability as well as reduced noise, vibration, and harshness.
AMSOIL Synthetic CVT Fluid and Nissan NS-2 CVT Fluid were put through their paces in the field. Before the transmissions were broken down and inspected, four automobiles (two with AMSOIL CVT Fluid and two with Nissan NS-2 CVT Fluid) were driven 100,000 miles.
AMSOIL CVT Fluid offered great protection during the field trial, as evidenced by the lack of wear throughout the belt and pulley photographs below, demonstrating that it is an excellent substitute for Nissan NS-2 CVT Fluid.
AMSOIL lab testing also reveals AMSOIL CVT Fluid met, and in some cases surpassed, the protection and performance of Nissan NS-2 CVT Fluid:
In FZG wear testing (ASTM D5182), Nissan NS-2 achieved a 7 stage pass, while AMSOIL CVT Fluid significantly surpassed it with an 11 stage pass.
In the JASO LVFA Anti-Shudder Durability Test, AMSOIL CVT Fluid lasted six times longer, translating into improved anti-shudder durability and reduced noise, vibration and harshness.

AMSOIL Synthetic CVT Fluid should be changed according to your vehicle manufacturer's recommendations.
To prevent slippage, CVT fluids must be designed with the proper frictional requirements.
Using the incorrect fluid may lower performance and may even cause your transmission to fail.
In order to maximize CVT performance and longevity, solid wear prevention is also required. That's why AMSOIL CVT Fluid was created to combat wear and increase transmission life.
