  1. Spirax             S5 ATF X cannot be used in transmissions for which are recommended            Type F transmission fluids. Carefully check the operating instructions if your vehicle brand is listed: Datsun / Nissan until 1971,             Lincoln until 1978, Ford / Mercury until 1981        release, Toyota until 1983 release, Volvo until 1985 release, Mazda until 1986            release, Saab until 1993 issue
  2. Spirax             S5 ATF X is not suitable for CVT transmissions and dual clutch transmissions (DCT).
  3. The Spirax      S5 ATF X does not meet requirements        GM 2006             requiring DEXRON®VI,vehicles     Ford requiring Ford MERCON® LV or Mercon® SP, Shell 1375.4, the latest transmissions           Daimler(ATF 134FE) and 6- and 7- stepped transmissions of       some other manufacturers, as        well as other special transmissions where fluid for recommended automatic transmissions with low viscosity is. Where the application allows the use of an alternative        fluid with a higher viscosity (for example, Nissan Matic-J when Nissan Matic-S is not available) for these specifications, Shell Spirax S5 ATF X is an excellent      recommendation.
