Just like your vehicle’s engine needs motor oil to keep things running smoothly, your car’s gears also need lubrication. Your manual gearboxes, transmissions, transaxles, and more require consistent lubrication to prevent corrosion, scuffing, and pitting. However, make no mistake, engine oil and gear oil are two very different things and can’t be used interchangeably.
Engine oil works in a high-heat environment, whereas automotive gear oils are subject to higher pressure. The additives within their formulation allow them to function properly in their respective environments. Without gear oil, you risk damaging your transmission and other critical gear systems. That's why Santie Oil Company makes it easy to buy and ship high-quality automotive gear oil right to your door, so you can protect your vehicle and keep it running in top condition.
