Continuously variable transmissions (CVTs) create unlimited gear ratios using a belt or chain running between two variable diameter pulleys. CVTs require a unique transmission fluid with specialized frictional characteristics designed to ensure the belt or chain remains in contact with the pulleys without slipping. Amsoil Synthetic CVT Fluid provides outstanding metal-to-metal frictional properties and excellent protection and performance. It is Warranty Secure and is a cost-effective, high-performance alternative to vehicle manufacturer fluids.

Excellent Frictional Properties

The metal-to-metal frictional properties between the CVT's belt/chain interface and the pulleys are important, relying on the CVT fluid to prevent slipping. Amsoil Synthetic CVT Fluid provides exceptional metal-to-metal frictional properties to help prevent belt and chain slipping and help extend trans miss ion life.

Outstanding Wear Protection

Amsoil Synthetic CVT Fluid is durable. In normal and severe service, it effectively resists wear to the transmission's vital parts, helping achieve long life. Resists Heat In elevated heat, Synthetic CVT Fluid's thermally stable formulation guards against the harmful effects oftherma I breakdown. It resists the formation of varnish that can threaten transmission performance and life.

Superior Wet-Clutch Performance

Amsoil Synthetic CVT Fluid provides superior wet-clutch performance for outstanding anti-shudder durability and reduced noise, vibration and harshness.

Field Proven

Field testing was conducted to compare Amsoil Synthetic CVT Fluid and Nissan NS-2 CVT Fluid. Four vehicles (two equipped with AmsoilCVT Fluid and two with Nissan NS-2 CVl Fluid ) were driven 100,000 miles before the transmissions were torn down and inspected.

As indicated by the lack of wear in the belt and pulley photos below, Amsoil CVT Fluid provided outstanding protection throughout the duration of the field trial, proving it is a highquality replacement for Nissan NS-2 CVl Fluid.
