Oils and Oil Change Kits
Everything you need for an original-quality oil change

Oils and Oil Change Kits

Less wear – longer service life

The demands on modern cars have increased as well as the demands on automatic transmissions and transmission oil. Oil is an important factor in assuring the performance of transmission components. Choosing the wrong oil can have serious consequences. Higher fuel consumption, shifting problems or long-term problems such as damaged friction disks are only a few examples. That's why ZF as a transmission manufacturer develops transmission oils as a component in conjunction with the individual transmission and customizes the oils specifically to the transmission's requirements.

Electromobility –

Prepared for the future

The signs are pointing to electricity. Electromobility is the hot topic in the automotive industry, and service operations can no longer be imagined without it.

Because during work on a hybrid transmission, voltage peaks of up to 1,000 volts can occur, this work must only be performed by experts with a special high voltage qualification. For this reason, we offer high voltage training, in addition to a broad range of electric mobility trainings. Within this innovative training concept, we offer expert job-specific knowledge with maximum flexibility.

The trainings are modularly structured: Optimally coordinated e-learnings are supplemented by practical exercises.

FAQ

about oil and oil change kits

  • Why has ZF developed ZF LifeguardFluid?

    Modern generations of vehicles and transmissions are subject to ever more demanding requirements. Ultimately, the same is true of transmission oils. Also, certain oil properties are now essential for certain transmission components to perform at their best (“oil as a component”). ZF LifeguardFluid is optimized for transmissions and therefore guarantees maximum performance and shifting comfort.

Also, certain oil properties are now essential for certain transmission components to perform at their best (“oil as a component”). ZF LifeguardFluid is optimized for transmissions and therefore guarantees maximum performance and shifting comfort.

  • Why should I use ZF LifeguardFluid?

    In modern transmissions, the oil is a “component” that needs to match the various transmission functions and materials as precisely as possible. ZF transmission oils are developed in conjunction with the individual transmissions and adapted to their specific requirements. Commercially available products usually have to meet the specifications of more than one unit. The compromises involved prevent your ZF transmission from reaching its full potential. ZF oils benefit from ZF's OEM expertise and always meet the requirements of the vehicle manufacturers.

    ZF transmission oils contain a matched combination of high-quality base oils and special additive packages. This guarantees excellent lubrication and friction properties even under extreme operating conditions and maximizes the service life of ZF units, often significantly reducing fuel consumption at the same time.

    ZF transmission oils are especially recommended for applications with high thermal stress (e.g., demanding topography, sporty driving style, transmissions with retarders/intarders).

  • How can I recognize a genuine oil like ZF LifeguardFluid?

    Pay attention to the original packaging and the exact specification. If in doubt, contact a ZF Aftermarket Service Center for an oil sample analysis.

  • How can I find the right transmission oil for my transmission?

    The lubricants approved for ZF units are detailed in the ZF Lists of Lubricants (TE-ML ...) which are updated every three months. The Lists of Lubricants can be viewed on the following page.

  • What should I bear in mind when purchasing a transmission oil?

    The oil must be approved by the manufacturer. The relevant recommendations are usually provided in the vehicle's operating instructions. Every three months, ZF Aftermarket publishes up-to-date online Lists of Lubricants, which you can obtain by going to www.zf.com/schmierstoffe. Product descriptions provided by lubricant manufacturers should clearly state that an approval has been issued.

Product descriptions provided by lubricant manufacturers should clearly state that an approval has been issued.

  • How often should the transmission oil be changed?

    ZF Aftermarket recommends a transmission oil change for ZF transmissions every 100,000 kilometers or after eight years at the latest.

    Important! Service intervals can vary with other transmission manufacturers. For example, for the Mercedes G5 or the Volkswagen DCT (DQ250), maintenance is scheduled after 60,000 kilometers.

    At very high operating temperatures, oil ages faster than under normal conditions. Depending on driving style and individual driving profiles (e.g., a lot of high-speed driving, trailer operation or sporty driving), shorter change intervals are advisable.

  • Will the use of high-quality oils result in longer oil change intervals?

    Yes, high-quality oils like ZF LifeguardFluid do not need to be changed as frequently. The intervals specified in the vehicle's operating instructions and generally also in the ZF Aftermarket List of Lubricants are binding.

  • What do I need to take into account if I want to switch over to a higher-quality oil?

    Switching over to an oil approved by ZF for the unit in question is always possible. However, residual quantities of the lower cost oil may have an adverse effect on quality. This is why some ZF units require more frequent oil changes after the initial switchover. The relevant List of Lubricants provides more information on this topic.

  • What do I need to take into account if I want to switch over to a lower cost oil?

    As a rule, any lubricant approved by ZF may be used. We recommend checking this based on the relevant List of Lubricants (see page with the Lists of Lubricants). Information such as "suitable for," "meets the requirements" or the like in the data sheets does not constitute approval.

    During the running-in phase, it generally makes sense to use higher-quality lubricants. The lubricants provided by ZF ex works should therefore not be replaced ahead of time. Generally speaking, oils added at the ZF plant are carefully filtered during a test run, so there is no need to change the oil during running-in.
