Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Today there is a wide variety of ATF Fluids available in the lubricant market, but nowadays the most common ATF fluid used in automatic transmission vehicles are Dexeron and Mercon grade ATF Fluids. Dexron Grade ATF Fluid is formulated by General Motors (GM) and Mercon ATF fluid is formulated by Ford Motor Company. Both these ATF fluids can also meet the requirements of automatic transmission systems of a wide range of vehicles from other manufacturers
However, it’s important to keep in mind that there are so many innovations and changes happening in the automobile industry and its also happening for ATF fluid segments. So ATF fluid grade specifications and requirements also will change over time.
No, nowadays there are different types of ATF fluids available in the market, formulated to meet the requirements of different types of automatic transmission systems. Some of the major types of ATF fluids are CVT, DEX III, DEX IIIH, DEX IIID, 4HP, 8HP, DEX IV, DEX VI, DCT, TYPE A etc
ATF Fluid is not universal, it is not possible to use a single grade ATF fluid for different types of automatic transmission systems. Because different automatic transmission systems have different specifications based on their make, model, manufacturer etc. So different automatic transmission systems require different ATF fluids which can satisfy their special specifications. That’s the reason ATF fluid is not universal and today there are different types of ATF fluids available in the market. Some of them are CVT, DEX III, DEX IIIH, DEX IIID, 4HP, 8HP, DEX IV, DEX VI and DCT.
No, you cannot use any ATF in your car. Always better to check the owner's manual guide to understand which ATF fluid is suited for your car. Different vehicle manufacturers use different types of automatic transmission systems so respectively each transmission system uses different ATF fluid. So it is always important to check the owner's manual before using ATF oil in your vehicle otherwise if you use the wrong ATF fluid it can damage your vehicle’s transmission systems and it can affect the warranty of the vehicle.
An automatic transmission car cannot run without ATF fluid. ATF fluid is one of the most important parts of automatic transmission systems which ensure proper lubrication with smooth shifting and prevent it from wear and tear. Without ATF fluid it will affect the functioning of the transmission system and result in complete failure. So it’s always important to keep the optimum level of ATF fluid in transmission systems.
Mixing different types of ATF fluid is not a good practice because each ATF fluid is formulated with different additives to meet the specific requirements of automatic transmission systems. By using mixed ATF fluids can result in affecting the transmission performance, transmission lifespan and warranty. So it's always better to follow the instructions in the owner's manual before using ATF fluid in your vehicle.
Here are some of the problems that can occur if you mix different types of ATF fluids:
- Not able to ensure proper lubrication and affect the overall functioning of transmission system
- May result in severe overheating issues

- Chance of formation of chemical reaction
- Mixed transmission fluid may start to burn due to overheating
- Possibility of leaking Transmission
- Formation of noises
Even though in some situations it is required to mix ATF oils, only do it with ATF fluids with the same characteristics and specifications, such as
- There is no issue with mixing Dexron and Mercon ATF fluids because both has similar specification and properties
- Mixing of Type A ATF fluid with Dexron or Mercon is not recommended because they are formulated with different properties and additives
- Mixing ATF fluids of different brands also recommended only if they have same properties and specifications
By using the wrong ATF Fluid in your vehicle can cause big troubles to the automatic transmission system. Some of the major issues are
- Not able to ensure proper lubrication inside the automatic transmission system which leads to wear and tear
- There is a high chance of overheating issues, this is because ATF fluid with low cooling properties not able to control the temperature inside transmission system
- Frequent incorrect shifting issues
- Using the wrong ATF fluid can increase wear and tear issues
- Lead to the formation of sludge and deposits
- Leading to transmission failures and damage the entire system
- It may affect vehicle warranty due to inappropriate use of ATF fluids
- Chances of accidents due to transmission failures and lead to lose control of the vehicle
No, ATF fluids are designed and formulated only for vehicles with automatic transmission systems and it is not compatible with manual transmission gear boxes. There are different gear oils available in the market specially designed for manual transmission gear systems.
Automatic transmission fluid is not only available in fully synthetic but it is also available with different formulations and properties. ATF fluid does not always come in fully synthetic form, it also comes in conventional and semi synthetic form. Fully synthetic ATF fluids are made from chemically synthesised base oils and conventional ATF fluids are made from refined petroleum base oil and semi synthetic ATF fluids are made by blending conventional and synthetic base oils.
Yes, Today there are different types of ATF fluids available in the market, each one is classified based on their specific formulations and characteristics. Some of them are

ATF fluid and gear oils are used for different occasions. ATF fluid is used in vehicles with automatic transmissions and Gear oils are used in vehicles with manual transmissions. So it’s not possible to judge which one is better than the other.
- Manual Transmission
- Automatic Transmission
- Continuously Variable Transmission
Full Form of ATF is automatic transmission fluid and it is a common name for the fluid or lubricant used in automatic transmission systems. On the other hand, Dexron is a name of ATF fluid which was formulated by General Motors Corporation (GMC) or (GM)
No, ATF fluid does not clean your engine. ATF fluid is normally used in vehicles with automatic transmission systems to ensure proper lubrication and protection for the transmission system and thereby providing a smooth shifting experience. This is the exact use of ATF fluid and it can’t be used in any kind of engines.
Lasting of ATF fluid depends on various factors like fluid type, blending formula, properties and characteristics, driving conditions, timely maintenance etc. Most of the ATF fluids has adequate durability and resistance towards degradation when compared with other types of oils.
It’s always better to follow the oil change time frequency mentioned in the owner's manual. Please check the oil change time interval recommended by the most popular vehicle manufacturers in the world

ATF fluid has a very low impact on fuel consumption. Typically ATF fluids are used in Automatic transmission systems of a vehicle to ensure proper lubrication between moving parts so it will help to reduce friction. If friction increases it will affect shifting and lead to affect fuel economy.
ATF fluid and transmission oil seem to be somewhat similar but there is a small difference. Transmission oil can be considered as a general term or word that represents the oil that is used in all types of transmission systems for lubrication purposes. ATF fluid is also a transmission oil specially formulated to use in automatic transmission systems and not compatible with manual transmission systems.
In this case, viscosity means the thickness of the oil. ATF fluids come with different viscosity grades because each vehicle manufacturer recommends different ATF Fluids based on viscosity level and other chemical properties.
No, ATF fluid is not the same as hydraulic fluid. ATF and hydraulic fluids are used for the same purpose, to transmit power but both are used in different applications. ATF fluid is used in automatic transmissions of vehicles, while hydraulic fluid is used in hydraulic systems of various machines and equipment.
It depends on the situation and condition where your vehicle operates. Vehicles operating in hot weather conditions require thick transmission fluid because in extreme heating conditions it can cause degradation of ATF fluid. On the other hand, vehicles operating in cold weather conditions require thin transmission fluid because under cold conditions there is a chance of oil freezing.
Type F ATF fluid was formulated by Ford Motor Company in 1977. Type F is still manufactured by other lubricant manufacturers but Ford Motor Company stopped manufacturing of Type A ATF fluid
ATF Fluids are specially blended and formulated to be used in vehicles with automatic transmission systems.
