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.


INDUSTRY Specifications

 

  • SAE 80W viscosity – SAE 75W-80 extrapolated (equivalent to 10W-30)
  • API Service Classification GL-4
