An ideal mixed fleet engine oil designed for naturally aspirated and turbocharged heavy duty diesel engines in mobile and stationary equipment where the API CK-4 service category and SAE 15W-40 viscosity grade is specified. Advanced API CK-4 additive technology is fully backwards compatible with, and replaces, service categories CJ-4, CI-4 Plus, and previous.
KLONDIKE SAE 15W-40 CK-4 Heavy Duty Engine Oil contains field proven additive technology which delivers maximum control on engine wear, outstanding engine cleanliness, and high TBN and viscosity retention for outstanding lubricant life and maximum engine durability. Metal anti-wear protection exceeds API CK-4 standards and tough OEM specifications.
KLONDIKE SAE 15W-40 CK-4 Heavy Duty Engine Oil is designed specifically to meet the stringent requirements of API Service Category CK-4 for heavy duty diesel engines running on Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel (ULSD) and equipped with advanced after treatment devices. Exceeds all soot control and particulate requirements of current emission control systems such as Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR), Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF), or Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR).
KLONDIKE SAE 10W TDTO-4
Transmission and Drivetrain Fluid is specially designed for the needs of heavy duty mobile and stationary equipment where Caterpillar TO-4 or Allison C-4 fluids are specified. Provides excellent operating and maintenance benefits across a broad temperature range for increased efficiency, performance, and component protection.
Typical applications include power-shift and hydrostatic transmissions, torque converters, wet brake mechanisms, differentials, final drive gears, and hydraulic systems. Never use KLONDIKE TDTO-4 Transmission and Drivetrain Fluid as engine crankcase oil.
KLONDIKE AW 46
Hydraulic Fluid is formulated for heavy duty hydraulic systems that operate in industrial and mobile equipment in all weather conditions. This hydraulic fluid is an advanced, anti-wear oil designed for high performance and provides outstanding operating and maintenance benefits for increased productivity over a wide range of applications operating under high temperature and pressure.
KLONDIKE AW 46 Hydraulic Fluid is recommended for vane, piston, or gear-type hydraulic pumps in heavy duty and industrial service where this viscosity is recommended.

Analyse for better planning
With regular use of Volvo oil analysis you get a comprehensive diagnosis of the machine's condition. The analysis gives a lot of information, e.g., water/coolant content, viscosity, dirt and quantity of metal particles.
Thanks to the early warnings provided by the oil analysis you can plan component changes in good time before problems occur, thus avoiding expensive damage and downtime.
With Volvo oil analysis you get:
- Reduced operating costs
- An excellent planning tool for preventive maintenance
- Less downtime
Using the oil analysis program can also shorten repair times, since sometimes it can pinpoint the cause of the malfunction. This means much faster troubleshooting and diagnosis.

Advice and tips
Handling lubricants correctly will protect your machine, your health and the environment. Here are a few important points:
- Change oil and filter in time
To avoid unnecessary wear and burnt piston rings you should respect the service intervals. It is economical to change the oil filter at the same time as you change oil. A new oil’s characteristics deteriorate quickly when an old filter is used. Old filters may get clogged causing engine damage.
- Maintain cleanliness
It is important to maintain cleanliness when filling oil, especially around the filler point. Carelessness is the major source of impurities that cause wear, erosion, corrosion and malfunctions.
- Check the oil level
An oil level that is too low is a frequent cause of component failures. It is important to check the oil level in the engine, transmission and hydraulic system at regular intervals.
- Disposal of waste oil
Waste oils should be handled as environmentally hazardous waste. Disposal is subject to national and local laws.
- Direct contact with oil and grease
Avoid direct skin contact with oil and grease.
- Volvo oil analysis
Volvo oil analysis gives you better control of your machine. Monitoring the oil’s status can reduce downtime and lower your operating costs.
