Twenty-two physical and chemical properties of a typical automatic transmission fluid were determined. In most cases the properties were determined over a range of temperatures. In general, air solubility, volumetric thermal expansion, and specific heat increase with increasing temperature; whereas, surface tension, specific gravity, viscosity, bulk modulus, density, thermal conductivity, and electrical resistivity decrease with increasing temperature.
