Does Your Differential Feel Neglected? Synthetic Gear Oil

Does Your Differential Feel Neglected? Change to synthetic gear oil

Free Amsoil Catalog

Many truck and SUV owners personalize their vehicles with aftermarket products such as lift kits, tires and rims, custom grills, paint, wheel well flairs and engine upgrades. While these upgrades and accessories can increase engine performance and add plenty of visual appeal, they do nothing for extending drivetrain life like synthetic gear oil can do.  Most people perform proper engine maintenance and change their engine oil on a regular basis, but according to one quick lube business, only about two percent of its customers purchase differential gear lube changes. Even fewer change to synthetic gear oil. Sometimes this out of sight, out of mind differential neglect results in costly gear failure, leaving the motorist stranded on the highway.

There are two basic ways to change differential gear lube to synthetic gear oil. The old fluid may be drained or suctioned out and the differential refilled with new gear lube, or the differential cover may be removed to allow more of the old gear lube to drain out and allow access to the magnet inside the differential. Unlike engines, differentials are not equipped with filters. Instead, magnets that are open to the entire gear lube sump are used to catch some of the metal wear particles. When changing differential fluid, the magnet should be cleaned to ensure the new gear lube does not
become contaminated.

After draining the old fluid and cleaning the magnet, the differential cover should be re-installed and the differential filled with the correct viscosity grade of AMSOIL SEVERE GEAR® Synthetic Gear Lube. The use of cleaning solvents is not recommended. Initial differential oil changes are recommended by some manufacturers after the first 500 to
3,000 miles. synthetic gear oil

Even when vehicle manufacturers do not specify to change the factory-fill gear lube to remove wear particles, it is a
good practice to do so. For optimum gear and bearing life, AMSOIL recommends the factory-fill differential gear lube
be changed no later than the first 5,000 miles with new or rebuilt gears, followed by 50,000 mile drain intervals in
severe service or 100,000 mile drain intervals in normal service when using AMSOIL synthetic gear lubes.

AMSOIL recommends any one of three SEVERE GEAR viscosity grades, 75W-90, 75W-110 or 75W-140, for turbo diesel or 4×4 trucks, SUV’s and automobiles.

SEVERE GEAR 75W-90 (SVG) replaces competitive 75W-90 and
80W-90 gear lubricants and delivers the optimum fuel efficiency and cold temperature performance of all the SEVERE GEAR gear lubes.

SEVERE GEAR 75W-110 (SVT) replaces competitive 75W-110, 75W-90 and 80W-90 gear lubricants and delivers increased fluid film wear protection over lighter viscosity fluids and better fuel efficiency than 75W-140 gear lubes.

SEVERE GEAR 75W-140 (SVO) replaces competitive 75W-140, 80W-140 and 85W-140 gear lubes in applications where these viscosities are recommended by equipment manufacturers.

Also don’t forget to look at the RACING gear oil options.

New AMSOIL Engine Assembly Lube (EAL) is formulated to cling to engine parts and provide exceptional wear protection while inhibiting rust and corrosion in newly built or rebuilt four-stroke engines. It is designed to dissolve in oil, helping eliminate oil port clogging and deposit formation, and represents a premium option for performance enthusiasts, engine builders and race teams. It also presents a perfect complement to AMSOIL Break-In Oil (BRK), Dominator® Racing Oil (RD20, RD30, RD50) and Z-ROD™ Motor Oil (ZRT, ZRF).


Clings Tenaciously to Parts
Because building an engine can take from a few days to many months, using an engine assembly lube that clings well to parts for extended periods is critical. AMSOIL Engine Assembly Lube is formulated with a high-viscosity base oil and a unique tackifier for long-lasting, tenacious cling.

Exceptional Wear Protection
During initial startup, engines operate momentarily with little-to-no oil pressure, placing camshaft lobes, lifters, rocker arms, bearings and other critical parts at high risk of wear and failure. In addition to inhibiting wear by clinging to parts, AMSOIL Engine Assembly Lube contains high levels of antiwear additives for further protection.

Inhibits Rust and Corrosion
An engine can sit in a garage partially assembled for long periods, allowing moisture and oxygen to form rust on exposed metal surfaces. Amsoil assembly lube contains rust and corrosion inhibitors that protect engine components during inactivity.

Dissolves in Oil
Grease-based assembly lubes can increase the risk of oil port clogging if the grease is not fully consumed at initial startup, potentially causing engine failure. AMSOIL Engine Assembly Lube is designed to dissolve in oil, helping oil ports remain clean, and helping to eliminate deposit formation under the valve covers and in the oil pan.

Easy and Precise Application
Amsoil assembly lube is packaged in convenient 4-oz. tubes, allowing for cleaner, more precise application compared to other products.
