MANUAL TRANSMISSION FLUIDS

Hydraulic Fluids
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.
CASTROL AXLE AP 85W-140

CASTROL AXLE AP 85W-140

 

High quality, mineral oil based, multipurpose gear oil for use in most passenger car, light and heavy duty truck conventional differentials, final drives, non-synchronised manual transmissions, steering gears and other applications where API GL-5, API MT-1 or SAE J2360 performance is required.
