FCP Solutions provides the full range of Prolube Lubricants transmission and gear oil products. You equipment will benefit from fluids engineered to perform in the environment you operate them in, Australia. Early wear and component failure of transmission and diffs can be significantly reduced with Prolubes products that provide:

  1. Enhanced Lubrication and Reduced Friction: Prolube oil products are engineered to provide superior lubrication to transmission and differential components. This reduces friction between moving parts, ensuring smoother operation and preventing excessive heat build-up. Reduced friction means less wear and tear on critical components like gears, bearings, and axles, ultimately extending their lifespan.

  2. Optimized Viscosity for Australian Conditions: Formulated to perform exceptionally well in the diverse climate conditions found in Australia, from the scorching heat of the Outback to the chilly winters in the southern regions. Prolube oils ensure optimised viscosity for consistent lubrication, even in extreme temperatures, and prevents viscosity breakdown that can lead to premature component failure.

  3. High Load-Bearing Capacity: Boasting high load-bearing capacity, which is crucial for transmissions and differentials that often experience heavy loads, especially in off-road or towing applications. By supporting these loads effectively Prolube oils prevent overloading and reduce the risk of component fatigue and failure.

  4. Exceptional Wear Protection: Fortified with additives that provide exceptional wear protection, this means that even under intense stress and heavy use, Prolube oils will protect critical components shielding them from abrasion and damage. As a result, the transmission and differential gears, bearings, and other parts remain in excellent condition, reducing the likelihood of early wear and tear.

  5. Extended Maintenance Intervals: By using Prolube Lubricants high-quality synthetic based oil products, customers can benefit from extended maintenance intervals. This not only saves time and money on frequent oil changes and component replacements but also enhances the overall reliability and longevity of transmissions and differentials. Longer maintenance intervals are particularly appealing in Australia owing to long travel distances.

When to Change Transmission & Gear Oils

Changing the oil in transmissions and differentials is an essential maintenance procedure to increase their longevity and smooth operation. Considering the cost of repair and replacement on these items oil replacement is a relatively cheap preventative maintenance measure. How often oil should be changed in transmissions and differentials depends on a number of factors, the below is a guide, as well as some early signs of wear to look out for in these components of a vehicle, truck or machine.

  1. Transmission Fluid:

    • Change Interval: The frequency of transmission fluid changes depends on the type of transmission (automatic or manual) and the manufacturer's recommendations. Generally, automatic transmissions should have their fluid changed every 48,000 to 96,000 kilometres, while manual transmissions may require less frequent changes, typically every 96,000 to 144,000 kilometres. Synthetic fluid can often extend these times significantly. It's essential to consult the vehicle's manual for specific guidance.
    • Early Signs of Wear:
      • Slipping Gears: If you notice that the transmission is slipping out of gear, struggling to shift, or there's a delay in shifting, it could indicate transmission wear.
      • Burning Smell: An overheated transmission can emit a burning odor. This may result from low or degraded transmission fluid.
      • Leaking Fluid: Transmission fluid leaks can lead to a lack of lubrication and cause damage. Inspect your driveway or parking space for signs of fluid spots.
  2. Differential Fluid:

    • Change Interval: The frequency of differential fluid changes also varies depending on the vehicle and its usage. Typically, it's recommended to change the differential fluid every 48,000 to 96,000 kilometres. Synthetic fluid an again extend these service intervals significantly. However, consult the owner's manual for specific guidelines.
    • Early Signs of Wear:
      • Whining or Grinding Noises: Unusual whining or grinding noises, especially when turning, can be a sign of worn-out differential components or low fluid levels.
      • Fluid Contamination: Inspect the differential fluid regularly. If you notice a milky or foamy appearance, it could indicate water contamination, which can damage the differential.
      • Leaking Fluid: As with transmissions, differential fluid leaks can lead to a lack of lubrication and damage to the differential components.

It is vitally importanant to adhere to manufacturer-recommended maintenance schedules for transmissions and differentials. Regular fluid changes help ensure proper lubrication, cooling, and the removal of contaminants, which are vital for the longevity and performance of these critical components. Furthermore, efficient record keeping of maintenance can help address any early signs of wear promptly to prevent costly repairs or replacements.

Prolube Lubricants oil products offer enhanced lubrication, reduced friction, high load-bearing capacity, exceptional wear protection, and extended maintenance intervals. At FCP Solutions, we are proud to supply Prolube products throughout Australia, with a special focus on North Queensland regions, including Rockhampton, Mackay, Cairns, and the Atherton Tablelands areas.
