A reader asks: I’ve got a 2020 Ford Mustang (5.0L) with the Getrag 6-speed manual transmission. I need a transmission fluid that substitutes Ford/Motorcraft XT-11-QDC Dual-Clutch Transmission Fluid or meets the Ford WSS-M2C200-C2 specification. Can you offer the proper fluid?
Our answer: Yes, we have a transmission fluid that meets the Ford WSS-M2C200-C2 standard. AMSOIL Synthetic DCT Fluid meets the Ford spec. It would be an excellent upgrade for your Mustang’s Getrag MT82 manual transmission.
Why Use AMSOIL Over Ford Dual-Clutch Transmission Fluid?
AMSOIL DCT Fluid is a 100% synthetic transmission oil. Some sites suggest that the Ford XT-11-QDC Fluid is “manufactured with synthetic base oils”. Although, Ford does not indicate on their label (or in their literature) whether this is a synthetic fluid. Let’s assume that the Motorcraft/Ford product is fully or partially synthetic.
However, it can be stated unequivocally the AMSOIL DCT Fluid is a full-synthetic product. With almost 50 years of synthetic oil experience, AMSOIL’s track record in this field speaks for itself.
Features And Benefits Of AMSOIL DCT Fluid
- Delivers robust wear protection
- Reduces friction for a smooth shifting experience
- Maintains viscosity in extreme heat
- Provides consistent performance in colder temperatures.
- Offers long service life
Is It Necessary To Add The Ford XT-18 MT82 Transmission Additive?
Ford offers a transmission fluid additive that is specific to the Getrag MT82 transmission. Is it necessary to use this additive with AMSOIL AMSOIL Synthetic DCT Fluid?
No, it is not necessary to add the Ford/Motorcraft XT-18 MT82 Transmission Additive to AMSOIL DCT Fluid. AMSOIL’s policy of not using aftermarket oil additives also applies to this MT82 6-speed transmission.
This additive may well be a benefit when used with the Ford/Motorcraft Dual-Clutch Fluid.
