AMSOIL has introduced a new synthetic fluid for dual-clutch transmissions (DCTs). AMSOIL Synthetic DCT Fluid’s superior frictional properties protect against shudder and gear clashing to consistently produce fast, smooth shifts. Its exceptional durability provides stability in stop-and-go traffic and excels under intense, high-heat conditions. AMSOIL DCT Fluid’s built-in oxidation resistance helps prevent sludge formation in vital transmission parts.    

While DCTs are capable of seamless shifts, they can suffer from shudder or lurching at slow speeds. Transmission fluid with specific frictional properties is required to prevent shudder. DCT fluid must also maintain the proper viscosity to provide protection during the high-heat operation native to high-performance sports sedans and supercars.    

The concept of two transmissions working in tandem within one vehicle dates back to the 1930s. The dual-clutch transmission (DCT) made its first practical appearance decades later in several 1980s-era race cars. In 2003, Volkswagen’s Golf* Mk4 R32 was the first production vehicle to feature the technology. Today the spectrum of vehicles with DCTs has widened, from the Hyundai Sonata* to the Nissan GT-R*.
