As manual transmissions become more complex there’s a need for more technologically advanced fluids to ensure vehicle reliability. Getting the right oil for your car is key to ensuring your gearbox operates as designed and maintain performance throughout the lifetime of the vehicle.
Castrol, with over 100 years of experience in developing transmission fluids, and being the choice of many leading truck and transmissions manufacturers for factory-fill products, offers a range of manual transmission fluids for your vehicle requirements; providing you the peace of mind that you are getting the right oil for your vehicle and keeping your vehicle on the road longer.
As part of a global simplification program, Castrol’s entire driveline range is now unified under the Castrol TRANSMAX brand.
The advanced Castrol TRANSMAX range features Smooth Drive Technology™ with active control molecules that automatically adjust their friction level with changing pressures and speed. This ensures the transmission is constantly served the right level of friction at any given moment – protecting the parts and delivering a smoother drive for longer. That’s why, 2 out of every 3 major vehicle manufacturers** choose Castrol transmission fluids as part of their factory fill.
