Meets the requirements of most automatic transmissions. Delivers maximum protection and is excellent in demanding environments such as towing, hauling or commercial use. Lasts longer than conventional ATF for extended drain intervals. Superior hot and cold weather performance. Improves efficiency and typically reduces operating temperatures by as much as 50°F.
|By-Pass Oil Filters
The AMSOIL By-Pass Oil Filter provides the best possible filtration protection against wear, oil degradation, rust and corrosion. Working in conjunction with the engine’s full-flow oil filter, the AMSOIL By-Pass Filter operates by filtering oil on a "partial-flow" basis. It draws approximately ten percent of the oil at any one time and traps the extremely small, wear-causing contaminants and water that full-flow filters can’t remove. The AMSOIL By-Pass Filter typically filters all the oil in the system several times an hour, so the engine continuously receives analytically clean oil.
|By-Pass Oil Filter Mounting Kits
Engine wear is caused by dirt particles larger than 5 microns. The AMSOIL By-Pass Oil Filter removes particles as small as 1/10 of a micron, virtually eliminating engine wear. AMSOIL By-Pass Oil Filters filter all the oil in a six-quart system in about five minutes at an average engine speed equivalent to 45 mph.

409,000 Mile Oil Drain Interval Mack Engine Teardown
|After 409,000 miles without an oil change, the AMSOIL protected Mack E7-400 engine in this truck was as wear-free as an engine in comparable service treated to TWENTY TIMES the oil changes.|
“I didn’t see any surprises in there at all. Based on my experience with AMSOIL Motor Oil, it came out the way we expected,” said owner/operator Haywood Gray of his 1990 Mack E7-400 engine.
It came out in good shape, exactly what you’d expect for a well-maintained engine with 630,000 miles. Yet the engine’s oil had not been changed for 409,000 miles!
Gray began using AMSOIL Synthetic Heavy-Duty Diesel and Marine 15W-40 Motor Oil (AME) in the E9-400 V-8 engine of his first truck, a 1984 Mack, after the engine accumulated 45,000 miles. For 280,000 miles, Gray changed his oil at 40,000- to 60,000-mile intervals though his oil analysis reports showed, without exception, that the oil was good for continued use. At 325,000 miles, Gray increased his oil drain interval to 100,000 miles.
The engine was torn down at 600,000 miles when Gray decided to sell the truck. The cylinder liners, bearings, pistons, rings and oil pump, all treated to extended oil drain intervals with AMSOIL, were found to be in excellent condition.
Gray continued using AMSOIL AME in the engine of his new truck, a 1990 Mack with a E7-400 engine. With the new truck, instead of using 100,000 mile drain intervals, Gray began basing his oil drains on the findings of a used oil analysis program. He also installed an AMSOIL By-Pass Oil Filter.
After 630,000 miles total and 409,000 miles without an oil change, the E7-400 engine was torn down by the local Mack dealership in December 1996 and its parts were examined by an engine rater from a major oil additive manufacturer.
The engine showed light to moderate wear throughout, just as an engine in similar service and lubricated with conventional oil changed at 15,000- to 20,000-mile intervals would show. In fact, according to the engine rater the parts he examined – cylinder liners, pistons, rings, bearings, valve train components – could have been put right back in the engine and would have continued to provide the good, dependable service they had provided all along – after 409,000 miles without an oil change!
|"The pins show no wear at all. The piston crowns and lands show a normal amount of carbon. The skirts are very clean with a few fine vertical lines."||"The rings are very, very good. All the rings are free. None are broken. No plugging whatsoever in the oil rings."||"Probably 95 percent of the crosshatching is still in the liners. No scuffing, no cavitation in the liners. The liners could go back in the condition they’re in."|

|"Again, very, very light wear. These could be put right back in and used again. In an extended drain program [with petroleum oil] there’s a possibility you could see maybe half again as much wear."||"Light wear. They compare to [those in] an engine that had 15,000- to 20,000-mile [petroleum] oil and filter changes.”||“Minimal wear. These, too, compare to [those in] an engine that had 15,000- to 20,000-mile [petroleum] oil and filter changes.”|
