CASTROL MANUAL VMX 80W

Castrol Manual Vmx 80w

A manual transmission fluid of advanced design especially developed to provide easier gear changes over a wide temperature range.

 

It is particularly versatile in cold weather as it reduces shift effort at start-up, as well as controlling transmission noise and idle rattle at operating temperatures.


Application


It should be used in manual transmissions of most car and light commercial vehicles (LCV’s) requiring GL-4 performance, where improved low temperature shift performance is required.


Features & Benefits

 

  • Quieter transmission operation and easier low temperature gear shifting improves driving experience.
  • Improved gear tooth and bearing durability reduces the risk of breakdown and extended component life.
  • Effective lubrication over a wide temperature range.
  • It can be used as a low drag gearbox oil in 2-stroke motorcycles with separate gearboxes.

CASTROL SYNTRANS 75W-85

Castrol Syntrans 75w-85

Full synthetic manual transmission lubricant with outstanding low temperature fluidity, oxidation stability and synchroniser performance.

 


Application


Eaton has approved Castrol Syntrans 75W-85 for extended service intervals in mid-range transmissions. Also recommended for passenger car and light commercial vehicle transmissions, transaxles and transfer cases where API GL-3 or GL-4 and SAE 75W-85 or SAE 80 viscosity is specified.

 

It has proved to provide excellent synchroniser performance in a range of Mitsubishi passenger car and 4 Wheel drive manual transmissions. It is also effective in Holden Jackaroo and Rodeo manual transmissions for best cold shift performance and competition applications. It is also approved for Tremec TR3650 manual transmissions as found in the Ford Tickford TE, TS 50 and FPV models.


Features & Benefits

 

  • Excellent oxidation stability makes it suitable for high temperature and extended drain service.
  • Proven synchroniser performance makes gear shifting easier and transmission operation quieter.
  • Very fluid at low temperatures for easier cold start gear shifting in synchronised transmissions.
  • Good wear and EP performance ensures component protection under high load conditions reducing downtime and service costs.
  • Compatible with normal mineral oil, hence no special flushing procedure is needed when changing from mineral to synthetic oil.
  • Long drain performance – potentially lower maintenance costs and greater vehicle availability.
  • Specially selected synthetic base fluids and additive system – very stable viscosity in service.


industry Specifications

 

Castrol Syntrans 75W-85 is suitable where the following performance levels are specified:

  • API GL-4
  • Volvo Transmission Oil 97307: 006
  • MB-Approval 235.4
  • Selected Eaton Transmissions
CASTROL SYNTRANS FE 75W

Castrol SYNTRANS FE 75W

Fully synthetic transmission fluid recommended for most passenger car conventional manual and “dry clutch” transmissions where API GL 4 lubricants are required. It is approved for use where Ford WSS-M2C200-D2 is specified.

 

Suitable in most manual transmissions where an automatic transmission fluid is recommended. It has much stronger wear performance than virtually all automatic transmission fluids and also retains viscosity in service exceptionally well.

 

Features & Benefits

 

  • Low viscosity synthetic formulation offers the potential for fuel economy benefits while maintaining excellent wear protection.
  • Extremely good cold flow properties provides added protection on start up and improves shift quality.
  • Excellent frictional characteristics extends synchroniser life and improves shift comfort.
  • High shear stability maintains performance over the lifetime of the lubricant.
  • Excellent high temperature stability maintains transmission cleanliness prolonging the life of transmission and lubricant.
  • Excellent wear protection alternative to automatic transmission fluid in manual transmissions.

  • Ford WSS-M2C200-D2
  • MB-Approval 235.73
CASTROL UNIVERSAL 80W-90

Castrol UNIVERSAL 80W-90

Castrol Universal 80W-90 is a manual transmission and rear axle lubricant. The product is recommended for Holden VN V6 and V8 manual transmissions. It is also Castrol’s prime recommendation for all transaxles that include both helical and hypoid type gears. Vehicles with combined transmission and hypoid differentials where Castrol Universal 80W-90 is recommended include the following:

 

Castrol Universal 80W-90 is recommended in place of SAE 80W-90 GL-4 or 5 gear oil where improved cold shift is desired.

 


Features & Benefits

 

  • Excellent gearshift capability.
  • Quiet transmission operation – driver comfort.
  • Single product for transmission and final drive.
  • High load carrying capability ensures gears operating under high loads are protected prolonging component life.
