New Durability Testing of Dual Clutch Transmission Fluids 2008-01-2397

This paper reports its findings in three separate parts. First, a comparative study is made among existing commercial dual clutch automatic transmission fluids (DCTFs). Significant differences in fluid torque capacity, friction material compatibility and copper corrosion performance were found among the fluids. Second, both a new vehicle chassis dynamometer durability test and a SAE#2 durability procedure are offered, specifically designed for DCTs. A 2008 VW GTI did well in the severe 60,000 mile chassis dynamometer procedure. Third, a new DCT fluid is discussed.
