The Automotive Lubricant Performance and Service Classification Maintenance Procedure
- Ground Vehicle Standard
Published May 01, 1994 by SAE International in United States
The Automotive Lubricant Performance and Service Classification Maintenance Procedure is designed to keep abreast of changing requirements by redefining existing, adding new, or declaring as obsolete lubricant categories (Unless otherwise specified, the words categories or category shall also imply classifications or classification.) with automotive application. To accomplish such action expeditiously requires close coordination among the appropriate societies (i.e. API or NLGI, ASTM and SAE) (The following committees are responsible within the respective societies: API - Marketing Department Fuels and Lubricants Committee; ASTM - Committee D02, Subcommittee B, G, or 07 (as appropriate) In the case of automotive greases, ASTM Subcommittee B develops performance criteria while Subcommittee G develops the test techniques.; CEC - Engine Fuel, Engine Lubricants or Transmission Lubricants Technical Committee; NLGI - Board of Directors; SAE - Fuels and Lubricants Division). This procedure is to be used for lubricants as currently defined in various SAE documents; i.e. engine oils (J183, J1423), transmission fluids (J311, J1285), axle/manual transmission lubricants (J306), and lubricating greases (J310).

The Fuels and Lubricants Council is responsible for: setting policy; providing final approval of documents; arbitrating controversial issues; reporting to the Technical Board (via the Technology/Development Group); approving the Technical Committee membership; and appointing Technical Committee, Coordinating Committee, and other Chairpersons as required. Participants in the SAE Fuels and Lubricants Council include OEMs, suppliers, consulting firms, government and other interested parties.
* Redlines comparisons are available for those standards listed in the Revision History that contain a radio button. A redline comparison of the current version against a revision is accomplished by selecting the radio button next to the standard and then selecting 'compare'. At this time, Redline versions only exist for some AMS standards. SAE will continue to add redline versioning with ongoing updates to SAE MOBILUS.
