ZF LIFEGUARDFLUID: MAXIMISING TRANSMISSION PERFORMANCE
There’s nothing fluid about lubricants
Careful consideration of the right oil for cars, SUVs, 4x4s, utes and light trucks can prove highly valuable in the long run, with the right oil offering a number of vehicle operational benefits including reduced fuel consumption, lower CO2 emissions and greater reliability over a vehicle’s life.
ZF warns that unapproved oils can also result in warranties being voided and potentially even lead to premature transmission failure.
Modern transmissions, one of ZF’s primary areas of expertise, are incredibly complex and require more than just any old oil.
Made specifically for ZF transmissions, ZF LifeguardFluid is a premium grade lubricant that headlines the ZF Aftermarket range of transmission oils.
ZF LifeguardFluid was developed to guarantee maximum transmission performance in all ways, so that passengers enjoy smoother gearshifts and the vehicle enjoys optimised fuel economy and reduced wear on components, thus decreasing maintenance and operating costs.
While ZF LifeguardFluid is the flagship of its lubricants offering in Australia, ZF Aftermarket additionally markets a range of premium quality oils suited to the broad spectrum of vehicles on our roads.
These specialised ZF Aftermarket transmission lubricants contain a matched combination of high-quality base oils and special additives, which guarantees excellent lubrication and friction properties even under the most extreme of operating conditions.
The special additives work to provide a longer service life for all transmission components, delivering maximum fuel economy based on optimised viscosity as well as lower CO2 emissions.
ZF says its LifeguardFluid oils support perfect shifting behaviour, comparable to the level of a new car, and vibration-free operation.
ZF automatic transmissions* are generally filled with lifetime oil. However, due to the many factors influencing the service life of transmissions in individual operation, ZF recommends an oil change after 150,000 km for its transmissions.
In operating conditions with high temperatures and loads, or with unknown vehicle use in the past, it can make sense to change the transmission oil at shorter intervals.
Transmission oils form the cornerstone of the service offering for ZF Aftermarket customers which includes everything you need for the maintenance and repair of your passenger car, SUV, 4×4, ute and light truck gearbox.
From new and exchange transmissions to clutches, components, oil change kits, genuine transmission spare parts and repair kits, ZF Aftermarket has the right solution.
ZF LifeguardFluid oils are available for 4, 5, 6, 8 and 9 speed applications in a variety of sizes, depending on the application.

*For Non-ZF transmissions of course the service specification of the vehicle manufacturer should also be considered.
