Low Viscosity Synthetic Multi-Vehicle Automatic Transmission Fluid

Today, the automatic transmission fluid market is very complicated. It was not that many years ago that it was hard to go wrong either changing your ATF or topping it off. The chances were, that your vehicle’s owner’s manual specified either General Motor’s Dexron or Ford’s Mercon ATF and most transmission fluids on the shelf of your local auto parts store met both specifications. Today, there are literally dozens of specifications and OEM recommendations, leaving drivers confused about what to use, which is why Lucas Oil developed Multi-Vehicle ATF, to simplify the process.

Most modern transmission fluids have a few things in common: better heat and oxidation resistance, better shear stability so that the fluid doesn’t lose viscosity over time, and a lower coefficient of friction needed for locking torque converters on modern cars. Lucas Multi-Vehicle ATF satisfies all these requirements; however, many cars and pickup trucks now use ATF that has a lower viscosity than traditional fluid, complicating the picture again. Lower viscosity fluids generally provide marginally better fuel economy. For this reason, we now have two multi-vehicle fluids. One standard (or high-viscosity), the other for vehicles that specify the use of low viscosity ATF.

Lucas Oil Low Viscosity Multi-Vehicle ATF is blended from premium API Group III synthetic base oils, combined with shear-stable viscosity modifiers and a high-quality additive package that includes anti-wear, anti-oxidants and corrosion inhibitors.

Primary Application

Recommended by Lucas Oil for any automatic transmission application where the vehicle owner’s manual specifies a low viscosity fluid, either foreign or domestic, such as: Dexron VI, Mercon LV (& SP), Honda DW-1, Nissan Matic S (and W), Mitsubishi Dia Queen ATF J-3 and ATF-PA and many more*. Drive with confidence knowing that Lucas Low-Viscosity Multi-Vehicle ATF is suitable for use in your car or truck.

Wade Hendrickson uses Lucas Heavy Duty Oil Stabilizer for 1990 Chevy Blazer

Dear Sirs:

Earlier this year I attended a tractor pull while I was visiting family in Florida. I noticed a lot of Lucas decals on trucks and tractors. I have a 1990 Chevy Blazer with a 350 CI engine that seems to have smoke since the day it was new. When I got home I tried your oil stabilizer. After the second oil change with using your oil stabilizer there was a significant improvement in the smoking. For good measure I have been using your oil stabilizer in my 1996 Harley. My son is a junior expert road racer and runs a Suzuki GSXR 600 at Loudon Speedway in New Hampshire, he was having some shifting problems and was going to have to pull the engine and split the case to check the transmission. I told him before he went through all of that to try some of your oil additive. Well, the transmission stopped making noise and the thing shifts o.k. now and that was two weekends of racing, six races, warm ups, and practice races. We both thank you and your product, it has saved us both time and money.

Thanks again,

Wade and Ed (Fast Eddie) Hendrickson
