Product Applications
AMSOIL SEVERE GEAR® Synthetic EP Lubricants are excellent for severe applications, such as towing, hauling, steep hill driving, commercial use, plowing, racing, off-road use, rapid acceleration, frequent stop-and-go operation and high ambient temperatures.

Higher horsepower, towing and hauling capabilities of modern vehicles make turbo diesel pick-ups, SUVs, vans and delivery/utility vehicles especially prone to severe service. Other severe duty vehicles include light, medium and heavy-duty trucks, buses, heavy equipment, 4X4s, tow trucks, race cars, tractors, and motorhomes.

Product Description
AMSOIL SEVERE GEAR® Synthetic Extreme Pressure (EP) Lubricants are premium grade gear oils specifically engineered for maximum performance in severe duty applications. These state-of-the-art AMSOIL formulations feature an exclusive blend of high viscosity, shear stable synthetic base oils and an extra treatment of high-performance additives. AMSOIL SEVERE GEAR® Synthetic EP Lubricants maintain their viscosity for long-lasting protection against metal-to-metal contact. The proprietary AMSOIL additives form an iron-sulfide barrier coating on gear surfaces, providing the ultimate line of defense against wear, pitting and scoring. AMSOIL SEVERE GEAR® lubricants help prevent “thermal runaway” — a phenomenon caused by a lubricant’s inability to control friction and increased heat under high-stress conditions. By controlling thermal runaway, AMSOIL SEVERE GEAR® Synthetic EP Lubricants inhibit rapid lubricant degradation and component damage. Equipment runs better and lasts longer with AMSOIL SEVERE GEAR® Synthetic EP Lubricants.

Performance
AMSOIL SEVERE GEAR® provides performance beyond that possible with conventional gear oil. These AMSOIL custom products offer superior gear and bearing protection, better friction and heat reduction, increased efficiency and extended service life.

* Superior Film Strength
* Controls Thermal Runaway
* Rust and Corrosion protection
* Reduced Operating Temperatures
* Improved Efficiency
* Longer Oil, Seal, & Equipment Life

Temperature Extremes
AMSOIL SEVERE GEAR® EP lubricants excel in hot and cold temperature extremes. By design, they resist breakdown from high heat, preventing acids and carbon/varnish formation. Their waxfree construction also improves cold flow properties, improving fuel economy and cold weather shifting.

Service Life

For product service life in differentials, consult your owner’s manual or the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) to establish the application, NORMAL or SEVERE.

.
NORMAL
SEVERE
Cars, SUV, Light & Medium Duty Trucks Drain at 100,000 miles of service or according to the owner’s manual, whichever is longer Drain at 50,000 miles of service or according to the owner’s manual, whichever is longer
Heavy Duty Class 8 Line Haul Follow the OEM drain interval (miles or hours) for synthetic oil up to 250,000 miles or 3 years, whichever comes first. Otherwise, drain at twice the OEM interval for conventional oil.
Heavy Duty Off-Road Vocational Follow the OEM drain interval (miles or hours) for synthetic oil up to 120,000 miles or 1 year, whichever comes first. Otherwise, drain at twice the OEM interval for conventional oil.

For product service life in non-differential applications, consult owner’s manual or the OEM for either normal or severe synthetic oil service intervals. Where service intervals are unavailable, drain at twice the interval for conventional oil.

Gear oils should be changed more frequently when operating vehicles or equipment in dusty or dirty conditions unless the gear system is properly sealed and equipped with membrane type breathers.

Note: AMSOIL does not support extended drain intervals where water contamination occurs. Check and service the gear oil frequently when water contamination is possible.

Recommended for use in differentials, manual transmissions and other gear applications requiring any of the following specifications: API GL-5, MT-1, MIL-PRF-2105E, Dana SHAES 234 (Formerly Eaton PS-037), Mack GO-J, or the differential (hypoid) gear oil specifications from all domestic and foreign manufacturers such as GM, Ford and Daimler Chrysler. Can also be used in axles where an API GL-4 lubricant is recommended.

AMSOIL SEVERE GEAR® (75W-140) provides superior performance and replaces competitors’ 75W-140, 80W- 140 and 85W-140 gear oils. Use where these viscosities are required by OEMs and where maximum viscosity protection is needed for extreme severe-duty applications.

AMSOIL SEVERE GEAR® is compatible with conventional and synthetic gear oils. Mixing AMSOIL gear oils with other oils, however, will shorten the oil life expectancy and reduce the performance benefits. AMSOIL does not support extended drain intervals where oils have been mixed. Aftermarket oil additives, other than those specified by AMSOIL, are not recommended for use with AMSOIL gear oils.

AMSOIL SEVERE GEAR® is compatible with most limited slip differentials. If limited slip differential chatter occurs, add AMSOIL Slip-Lock™ friction modifier additive.

HEALTH & SAFETY
This product is not expected to cause health concerns when used for the intended application and according to the recommendations in the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS).

Saw AMSOIL on Next Bite fishing show

I have a Ford F-150 that had a chattering problem. Would take place after taking 10 corners. Spoke to my mechanic about the chattering, and there were two choices: replace the differential or try installing a high quality diff oil. After seeing AMSOIL on TV, decided to talk to my mechanic about using AMSOIL in the differential. Mechanic has good things to say about AMSOIL, so I decided to find a local dealer. Purchased 4 quarts of 75W-140 and the Slip Lock Additive and had my mechanic install. The chattering still existed, but not as bad as before the fluid change. By 2,500 km the chattering was gone. Thank you to AMSOIL and the AMSOIL dealer.

Durable and resilient

It was time to change the differential fluid in my RV tow vehicle. So I got a nice new differential cover from magtec and 4 qts. of Amsoil severe gear 75/ 140 and what a difference that made, unbelievably smoother and I can notice what seems to be less resistance when accelerating.
Time will tell, but I've got a good feeling that choice will make a world of difference on the open Highway pulling my heavy rig.

Impressed with Amsoil Products

I use this in my 2014 Harley-Davidson Motorcycle. The transmission shifts smoother and runs quieter. I also use the 20-50 Synthetic in the crankcase, where I notice smoother operation and lower temperatures.

Reduces gear whine!

I've been having issues with my 3.73 gears, after taking my car to the track the gears whine and it can become annoying. Since I've been using Amsoil's 75W-140 for the diff, the gear whine has gone down a bit. The car feels great and my Torsen Limited Slip Diff seems to be behaving very well with the new oil. I recommend this product.

Grear Gear Oil

Run this in 3 trucks in both the front and rear diffs. One of those also runs it in the transfer case (NP205). Have had zero issues and have noticed less wear during yearly inspections. No fault of the gear oil at all but you need to make sure all your seals are in good working condition as this will let you know if it they are not, much more so then normal conventional gear lube, at least in my experience. Via an external temp reading (infared gun) of the diff cover after same trips with same load have noticed a drop in temperatures as well. Basically it works, and is the only thing I will run in high abuse applications.

Amsoil 75w-140 synthetic gear oil.

Use in a ford f150 as required. Change around every 60, 000 miles. May not be necessary, but can't hurt to have clean oil. Decided to use Amsoil after reading an independent test/study on gear lubes by a major oil company. Many oils were good. But Amsoil outperformed the other oils in nearly all of the tests performed. In 1998 when I first changed the oil Amsoil was all I could get in synthetic 75w-140. Ford dealers didn't carry it and the service manager recommended using 90w, stated, "We use 90w". I said, "the diff. Tag states 75w-140! You don't sell the oil you recommend?". Wonder how may diff's ford burned up? Have used Amsoil since then.
