Automatic Transmission Overheating
Automatic transmission overheating problems can lead to an expensive repair situation if not address. In many cases damage to the transmission can be happening without the drivers knowledge. Many of these problems occur while towing, transmission temperature can increase quite quickly, friction reduces and transmission fluid begins to break down.
AW10 Antiwear is formulated to deliver massive increases in lubricant load carrying ability, wear reduction and friction reduction. Cut internal friction, and you minimize heat build up & component stresses…so things last much longer.
Controlled engineering type tests on 3 different oils confirmed AW10’s ability to increase load carrying ability between 46% and 470%, before seizure occurred on the test rig. The test rig bearing temperature was reduced by 69C under stable load conditions. The torque required to drive the test rig was reduced by between 34% and 44% on two engine oils, indicating reduced machine frictional losses and efficiency potential.
Automatic transmissions overheating problems can be avoided
We have had several customers report automatic transmissions overheating in Mitsubishi Pajero 4×4’s, and equally good reports of rectifying the problem, by simply adding a little AW10 to the oil.
Pajero 2004 NP 3.2L DiD Auto. (John Tasker).While towing my 1500kg caravan I noticed that under load the transmission tunnel was becoming extremely hot. At 45,000km, I added a dose of AW10 at the rate of 1% to the auto transmission. Problem solved! I have now been using AW10 in my auto transmission for 45000km with no problems whatsoever. No more excessive heat and changes appear to be smoother. It had all its oils and fluids changed at the 90,000 km service, with AW10 again added to the AUTO TRANSMISSION. AW10 has been used in the diffs, transfer case, engine and power steering since new.
AW10 Antiwear is also suitable for manual transmissions, final drives, hydraulics and engines.
Freightliner FLC112. (Phil Riseley, Riseley’s Bulk Haulage).This prime mover is powered by a Series 60 Detroit with 18 speed Roadranger and Eaton diffs. Use of AW10 resulted in smoother gear shifts esp when cold. No click on fast changes. A slight engine rattle has also disappeared. Temperature reductions going up the Toowoomba range were 25F for the gearbox, 15F front diff and 20F rear diff!!
