Description / Abstract:


This publication describes API automotive gear lubricant service designations. It is designed to assist manufacturers and users of automotive equipment in the selection of transmission, trans axle, and axle lubricants based on gear design and operating conditions. Where special performance requirements apply, the descriptions in the publication conform to the automotive lubricants test language developed by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM).

API standards are published as an aid to procurement of standardized equipment and materials. These standards are not intended to in hibit purchasers or producers from purchasing or producing products made to specifications other than those of API.

API publications may be used by anyone desiring to do so. Every effort has been made by the Institute to assure the accuracy and reliability of the data contained in them; however the Institute makes no representation, warranty, or guarantee in connection with this publication and hereby expressly disclaims any liability or responsibility for loss or damage resulting from its use or for the violation of any federal, state, or municipal regulation with which this publication may conflict.

Suggested revisions are invited and should be submitted to the director of the Manufacturing, Distribution and Marketing Department, American Petroleum Institute, 1220 L Street, N.W., Washington, D.C. 20005.
