VersaTrans® LV

Full Synthetic, Low-Viscosity Automatic Transmission Fluid; Ford MERCON® LV & GM DEXRON®

Kendall® VersaTrans LV ATF is a full synthetic, low-viscosity (LV) transmission fluid approved for use in passenger car and light truck automatic transmissions that require a Ford MERCON® LV or GM DEXRON®-VI fluid. It also is recommended for use in Toyota vehicles where a Type WS fluid is specified, and in many newer import vehicles.

Features & Benefits

  • Outstanding friction durability for consistent shift performance for the life of the fluid
  • Excellent oxidation resistance and thermal stability for long fluid life
  • Protects against sludge and varnish formation
  • Protects against rust, corrosion and wear
  • High shear stability
  • Excellent low-temperature properties for easier shifting in cold weather
  • Good seal compatibility
  • Good foam resistance
  • Low viscosity for improved fuel economy performance


  • Ford automatic transmissions and transaxles where a MERCON LV fluid is specified
  • GM automatic transmissions where a DEXRON -VI, earlier-generation DEXRON or AW-1 fluid is specified
  • Acura and Honda automatic transmissions where a Z1 or DW-1 fluid is specified
