Texamatic 1888

Texamatic 1888

Texamatic® 1888 is a high performance, multipurpose, shear stable, anti-wear automatic transmission fluid (ATF) with Voith Turbo approval. Formulated with high performance hydrocracked base oils and the latest additive technology to provide exceptional oxidation resistance, extended oil life and outstanding wear protection.

Customer Benefits
  • Smooth operation – Combination of advanced friction modifiers and high viscosity index fluid provides smooth, fuel-efficient gear shifting and shudder-free torque transfer from engine to wheels under all driving conditions.
  • Maximizes transmission life – Engineered specifically for Japanese design transmissions which feature slipcontrolled torque converter lock-up, with precisely balanced friction modifiers to prevent stick-slip vibration that leads to “shudder”. Outstanding additive durability ensures continuous anti-shudder protection and wear prevention in critically loaded gears and bearings.
  • Extended oil service life – Hydrocracked base oils and advanced performance additives provide exceptional thermal stability and oxidation resistance which prevents oil degradation and formation of deposits. Highly stable viscosity index improver resists breakdown under the high shear conditions typical of modern transmissions and maintains long-term film strength.

Texamatic® 1888 is specially engineered for Japanese passenger car automatic transmissions which require fluid properties different to conventional ATF products.


Automatic transmissions in many Japanese and Korean passenger cars and light trucks.

Suitable for service fill in automatic transmissions requiring DEXRON®-III or MERCON® fluids.
