Transmission systems are critical for the performance of a car, and for the wallet of the owner! Especially automatic transmissions are revolutionising both your budget and driving experience, as these systems went through an amazing evolution to become the highly fuel-efficient systems we know today.
The benefits offered by automatic transmissions are conquering our roads, and your workshop.

. This specific fluid combines astonishing thermal stability, wear reduction and fuel economy with an extremely broad material compatibility, enabling you to offer optimal maintenance to cars from different manufacturers. But, don’t be too hasty when taking a transmission fluid off your shelf. Even the most advanced fluids can’t cover all applications. Let’s use the WOLF OFFICIALTECH ATF 9G

So, what does the WOLF ECOTECH MULTI VEHICLE ATF FE cover? In broad terms we can claim that it covers most passenger cars, small off-road vehicles, vans and SUVs. In practice this is shown by the fluid’s specifications, which cover some of the major car and transmission manufacturers, such as: Aisin-Warner, BMW, Ford, Volkswagen, Toyota…
