Sinclair Automatic Transmission Fluid

Sinclair Passenger Car Transmission Products Automatic Transmission Products

We engineer our Automatic Transmission Fluid to keep your transmission running smoother and longer in Ford and General Motors vehicles where a DEXRON III/MERCON® fluid is specified.

Legendary Performance You'll Notice

As transmission designs have evolved, dramatic changes have demanded highly specialized fluids that can keep pace. Sinclair transmission fluids have also evolved and kept pace with those changes. Our lubricants technology has led us to develop advanced fluids that stand up to the difficult challenges of providing balance in three critical areas:


Get effortless shifting with friction stability that prevents shudder.


Avoid metal-to-metal contact, with a strong film of oil that keeps your rotating parts from undue wear and tear.


Resists thickening due to high operating temperatures.


  • Also recommended for all transmissions requiring DEXRON® II or IIE, or Type A transmission fluids. Do not use this product in General Motors vehicles after model year 2005 and Ford® vehicles after model year 2006. Do not use this product in transmissions that specify Ford Type F, MERCON® V fluids or GM Dexron® VI fluid.
