AMSOIL Products for the LLY Dmax

AMSOIL Recommended Products For The LLY Model Duramax

These AMSOIL products are recommended for the LLY model Duramax equipped GM trucks.

ENGINE OIL:

Synthetic 5W-40 Premium Diesel Oil (DEOQT)
Below 0F......5W-40 [1]
Synthetic 15W-40 Diesel and Marine Oil (AMEQT)
Above 0F......15W-40

The LLY requires 10.1 quarts. With any AMSOIL diesel oil listed above, and the use of an Ea Oil filter, the recommended drain interval is 3XOEM (About 22.3k miles) or 1 year whichever comes first.


TRANSMISSIONS:

Automatic Transmission,1000......AF6
Low Viscosity Synthetic ATF (ATLQT)
Torque-Drive Synthetic Transmission Fluid (ATD1G)

Automatic Transmission,6L90......AF6
Low Viscosity Synthetic ATF (ATLQT)

Below are the transmission fluid capacities:

Automatic Transmission, 6L90 Initial Fill..........6.4 quarts
Automatic Transmission, 1000 Initial Fill..........7.4 quarts [2]
Automatic Transmission, Total Fill
6 speed 6L90..........12.4 quarts
6 speed 1000..........12.7 quarts

For the 2004-2005 Dmax, GM recommends either Fuel Efficient ATF or Torque Drive. For the 2006 Dmax, GM recommends Fuel Efficient ATF. That said, Allison Inc. recommends using a TES-295 equivalent fluid for use with extended service intervals.

AMSOIL Torque Drive is not listed in their product lookup guide for 2006 or newer becuase that guide is based on OEM recommendations. Those being from GM. Even though Allison still recommends a TES-295 fluid.

Please not that what Allison warrants or recommends, does not effect your GM warranty on the transmission. Not only that but, the warranty on non-upgraded transmissions cannot be voided by GM unless they can PROVE that the fluid that you put in it caused a malfunction should one occur.
