There are many specialty oil companies that don’t have refineries, but buy their base stock and additives and formulate different lubricants/products. That doesn’t make their products any less important.

Ford doesn’t approve the use of Amsoil in the 6.7L diesel, so there’s that. When I had my four Cummins Rams, Chrysler didn’t approve Amsoil either.

The problem I have with Amsoil is most of there motor oil products are not API certified nor manufacturer certified, but there marketing leads you to believe it is.

Here's a copy and paste of their Signature Series diesel oil:
APPLICATIONS

API CK-4/SN, CJ-4, CI-4+, CF

ExxonMobil and Chevron are two manufactures that sell their base stocks. Infinium, Lubrizol, and Oronite produce and sell additives to be blended with the base stock.

I've had two failures with Amsoil and I won't ever use it again. Their manual synchro lube would only go 6k miles in my nv56oo before shifting problems and their so-wonderful 2k xxx, whatever it was, 75w90 came back with a BAD uoa in my D80 at 12300 miles and the r&p was already singing. I won't go for strike three! Craig

There will always be problems reported no matter what product it is, there is always more to the story!

I have ran the recommended AMZ/OIL lube for many thousands of miles in my 98 2wd RAM with the 4500 no issues.

This is what AMZ/OIL recommend for the NV5600 Manual Synchromesh Transmission Fluid 5W-30.

Did you run their slip lock friction modifier? Was it SevereGear?

They charge insane $$$ for certification. They have certified testing to back up their claims.

Don't like it don't buy it is all I can say.

Didn't say their products were any less important, but they don't make anything, basically as one said ,they stir up a pot of stuff made by someone else. Lots of other brands of oils out there that have went hundreds of thousands of miles, and didn't cost what Amsoil does.
