Volvo’s I-Shift transmission fluid is a fully synthetic SAE 75W-80 transmission lubricant engineered specifically for the Volvo I-Shift automated manual transmission.

Depending on vehicle and application, the fluid is approved for drain intervals up to 500,000 miles and has been developed to deliver the correct frictional responses, material compatibility and viscosity grade needed for optimized fuel economy and fluid durability for the I-Shift.

The fluid is formulated to offer added thermal durability and oxidation resistance, which helps protect against deposit formation and contributes to long seal life and extended oil drain and service intervals.

It is available in both five-gallon pails and four one-gallon jugs. For more information, go to
