Consistent shift quality
- Exceptional friction modifying properties
Approved For Use in Older Transmissions
ATF+4 is approved for use in older transmissions and is currently utilized in newer Chrysler, Jeep, RAM, and Dodge vehicles. The previous MOPAR ATF+3 formulation was discontinued in 2005, ATF+4 is recommended for all transmissions filled with ATF+3. ATF+4 is fully compatible with all transmission applications where ATF+, ATF+2 and ATF+3 Automatic Transmission Fluids are specified. Only certified ATF+4 is recommended for service of FCA vehicles as where ATF+4 is specified in the owner’s manual. The use of automatic transmission fluids other than ATF+4 could result in lower levels of performance, jeopardize transmission life, and void warranties.
“Licensing our ATF+4 product allows the millions of Chrysler, Jeep, RAM, and Dodge owners with vehicles on the road to receive transmission fluid that is designed exactly for their vehicle,” said Dennis Florkowski, former Chrysler Senior Specialist/Supervisor. “Using ATF+4 ensures a longer transmission life with regular servicing as described in the vehicle owner’s manual.”

The ATF+4® Automatic Transmission Fluid formulation is exclusive to FCA US LLC and ATF+4 is a registered trademark. The Center for Quality Assurance (CQA) monitors quality standards through each step in the fluid’s progress from license through commercialization. Each Blender and Rebrander involved in the production and sale of ATF+4 must be licensed and undergo a range of product testing prior to final licensing. Licensed brand names are periodically market-sampled to ensure consistent quality.
ATF+4® Blender Licensing
A Blender is a company that manufactures an approved formulation of ATF+4 and then sells the product to the marketplace or to licensed Rebranders. Each formulation must have a unique license number.
Companies interested in becoming licensed Blenders must submit a request for qualification of proposed formulations to CQA. The ATF+4 specification requires a unique additive system added to base oils. FCA US LLC’s ATF Committee reviews each Blender application and qualification test data. Required testing includes physical and chemical, wear, friction and elastomer testing. If the applicant’s qualification sample is approved, the Blender then submits licensing documents, including copies of intended product labels for approval.

ATF+4® Rebrander Licensing
A Rebrander is a company that purchases approved ATF+4 from a licensed Blender and then packages and markets the product under its own trade name and license number.
Companies that want to package fluid formulated and manufactured by licensed Blenders must submit licensing documents, including product labels, to CQA. Production samples are also submitted to CQA for verification testing.
