For a longer transmission life: new entry-level unit from MAHLE providing an efficient oil service for automatic transmissions
Stuttgart, March 11, 2019 – The global production of vehicles with automatic transmissions has increased by around 40 percent in the last five years. Due to this rising popularity, demand for automatic transmission service is also increasing at a rapid pace. With the ATX 150, MAHLE Aftermarket now offers workshops a new entry-level model in the proven FluidPRO® line.
Just like all operating media in the vehicle, the transmission oil ages over time. “Changing the oil regularly means you can enjoy driving with an automatic transmission for longer,” says Olaf Henning, Corporate Executive Vice President and General Manager MAHLE Aftermarket. “With the new ATX 150, we offer workshops a fast, low-cost, and precise service for automatic transmissions in passenger cars and delivery vans.” This new model in the proven FluidPRO® line allows workshops to carry out the oil service in accordance with MAHLE Aftermarket’s E³ principle: environmentally sound, economical, and efficient.
Zero Cross guarantees purity when changing oil type
“The Zero Cross concept is requested by numerous vehicle manufacturers and has already proven itself in our ATX 180. So the ATX 150 also has a unique service concept: guaranteed purity when changing the transmission oil type,” emphasizes Olaf Henning. Oil types are changed by means of easily replaceable oil tanks. Using a specially developed hydraulic circuit linked to the software, the workshop can safely transfer the ATX 150 with minimal fresh oil to a new transmission and thus a new type of oil. This prevents mixing of different oil types.
All you need for automatic transmission service from a single source
MAHLE Aftermarket recently expanded its range of oil filters to include a number of additional filter products for automatic transmissions. The transmission oil filters remove abrasions from the transmission and provide effective protection against damage. With these products and the ATX 150 and ATX 180 service units, MAHLE Aftermarket is able to offer a comprehensive automatic transmission service from a single source.
