PREMIUM ATF SERIES
May 18, 2021
Motor oil is for your vehicle's engine. A couple of differences are the following: Motor oil is designed to deal with the products of combustion, whereas automatic transmission fluid (ATF) does not see contaminants from fuel burning. An ATF is basically a closed system and the lubricant must last for a long period of time. Motor oil must be drained to remove contaminants after a relatively short time and/or mileage compared to an ATF. Similar additive component types are used, but at different levels and different chemistries. In an ATF, clutch friction is a very important consideration. Transmission fluid is also used by your steering system to keep its parts moving smoothly.
