Automatic Transmission Fluids

Heavy stop-and-go traffic, frequent short trips, trailer towing; they all put your engine to the supreme test and can take a toll on your transmission. To help protect your transmission against these tough conditions, Chevron offers a complete line of high-quality Automatic Transmission Fluids (ATF) specifically engineered for your vehicle.

MD-3

Chevron Automatic Transmission Fluid MD-3 is a passenger car and light truck automatic transmission fluid for most pre-2006 automatic transmissions built by General Motors, Ford Motor Company and other makes requiring a high-performance, multi-purpose, power transmission fluid. It is recommended for all applications that call for the former DEXRON® III and MERCON® fluids and for Allison C-4 fluids.

Benefits:

  • Maintains friction control for smooth shift action
  • Specially formulated to prevent shudder
  • Retains low temperature fluidity and high temperature stability for long operating periods
  • Protects automatic transmission fluid coolers from corrosion
  • Practically eliminates transmission overhauls due to sludge, corrosion, and wear

ATF+4®

Chevron ATF+4® Automatic Transmission Fluid is formulated with high purity synthetic base stocks. It is designed to maintain its viscosity through excellent oxidation stability and the use of long lasting viscosity modifiers. Chevron ATF+4 is specially formulated to give full protection in all critical areas for Chrysler Group transmissions.

Benefits:

  • Lubricates and prevents wear in gears, clutches, and bearings
  • Smooth, shudder-free shifting
  • Operates well over a wide temperature range
  • Protects seals, gaskets, and other nonferrous components
  • Prevents sludge and varnish formation

DEXRON®

Chevron Automatic Transmission Fluid DEXRON® -VI is designed to maintain its viscosity through excellent oxidation stability and the use of long lasting viscosity modifiers. DEXRON® -VI is designed specifically for use in all General Motors HydraMatic transmissions produced for model year 2006 and beyond. It is the latest generation technology approved for use by General Motors in automatic transmissions and automatic transaxles where a DEXRON® -VI fluid is specified.

Benefits:

  • Maintains friction control for smooth, consistent shifting
  • Improves fuel economy relative to previous DEXRON fluids
  • Practically eliminates transmission overhauls due to sludge, corrosion, and wear
  • Operates well over a wide temperature range
  • Protects gears, bearings, clutch plates, seals, bushings from wear and degradation

Multi-Vehicle

Chevron Multi-Vehicle ATF (MERCON® V) is fully approved and licensed under the MERCON® V and Allison C-4 specifications. In addition, it is suitable for service fill of many transmissions manufactured by North American, Asian and European OEMs. It provides excellent performance at all temperatures and is formulated to resist viscosity breakdown for long fluid life.

Benefits:

  • Maintains friction control for smooth shift action
  • Retains high temperature viscosity for better wear protection
  • Protects gears, bearings, clutch plates, seals, bushings from wear and degradation

Type F

Type F is specifically designed for most pre-1977 Ford vehicles and some makes between 1977 and 1981. Effective March 1997, Ford discontinued administration of approvals for Type F fluids. However, there are still many vehicles on the road that use Type F. Type F and MERCON fluids are not interchangeable.

Chevron ATF Type F is a high friction ATF for older Fords that specifically call for a Type F fluid.

Benefits:

  • Protects against formation of lacquers and other harmful deposits
  • Quiet performance — Especially effective in assuring proper action in Ford, Lincoln, and Mercury transmissions at all speeds.
  • Fast circulation during cold weather and excellent lubricating body when hot.
