Castrol Transmax

During a typical 10 mile city journey to and from work, on average, a vehicle makes 88,000 GEAR CHANGES AND 18,000 STOP-STARTS EACH YEAR, placing huge demands on the transmission and transmission fluids. Under these conditions, ordinary transmission fluids can simply wear out, leading to shudder, noise and ultimately, damaged parts.

Castrol Transmax with Smooth Drive Technology™ automatically adjusts its friction level in response to changing pressures on critical transmission parts. Providing smoother gear changes for longer and delivering a more relaxing drive.

Castrol Transmax automatic transmission fluids with Smooth Drive Technology™ are chosen by 2 out of every 3 major vehicle manufacturers as part of their factory-fill. These products have been co-engineered and formulated at Castrol’s Technology Centre in Germany, giving you the confidence to choose the right product for your customers’ vehicles.
