The AMS-Oiler® is a high-tech oil pre-charger
which puts an end to potential dry-engine starting. Typically,
an engine that has sat for even a short period of time will operate
relatively dry upon starting before oil is able to fully lubricate
the system. The AMS-Oiler® operates as an engine oil reservoir,
charged under pressure directly from the oil pump output during
normal engine operation. Upon turning the ignition key to the
on position, up to 160 ccs (5.4 oz.) of oil are discharged
from the reservoir to engine surfaces, building oil pressure and
providing vital lubrication.
End Dry Starts with the AMS-Oiler
The needs of automotive
and industrial equipment have continued to place increasing demands
on the lubrication industry. Over the years, AMSOIL research and
development has responded to changes in the industry by developing
products that keep AMSOIL on the cutting edge. The new AMS-Oiler
is the most recent example in a long line of top-quality innovations
Independent studies have concluded that engine
wear during start-up is a major concern. Even though engine components
remain dry for only a short period of time at ignition, when this
circumstance is multiplied by the 400 to 600 dry starts a year
by the average motorist, the potential for harmful metal-on-metal
contact and significant wear is great.
The AMS-Oiler is an oil pre-charger that
puts an end to dry-engine starting. Typically, an engine that
sits idle for even a short period of time will operate relatively
dry upon starting before oil is able to fully lubricate the system.
In fact, the automotive industry estimates that up to 50 percent
of engine bearing wear occurs during the starting process. Indeed,
the superiority of AMSOIL motor oils minimizes start-up wear by
clinging to the metal surfaces, but even more can be done to concentrate
the oil on the critical wear areas in an engine. With the AMS-Oiler
in place, 160 cubic centimeters of oil is injected directly on
the engine bearings and other wear sensitive surfaces upon turning
of the key, giving instant protection to vital engine components.
The AMS-Oiler outperforms gas and air charge
systems. When the ignition key is turned to the on position, an
audible alarm sounds while a 12-volt DC solenoid initiates the
AMS-Oiler's operation. When the oil delivery process is complete,
the alarm ceases and the operator can start the engine. The engine
can be started at any time without damage to the AMS-Oiler,
however, the AMS-Oiler is recharged by the pressure generated
by the engine's oil pump. Complete recharge is accomplished within
40 seconds. The absence of a gas or air charge eliminates the
possibility of cross-contamination of dirty gas or air with the
engine oil, keeping the oil pure and performing optimally. The
design of the AMS-Oiler reservoir also protects the unit
from ambient temperature fluctuations.
Specially crafted by AMSOIL technicians, the
AMS-Oiler is the culmination of extensive research and development.
Our products are exceptional when it comes to reducing wear
during operation, said Technical Director Dave Anderson.
The weakest link in the chain, however, was still during
startup. With the AMS-Oiler, were closing that last
With an extremely rugged chrome plated hi-grade
carbon steel reservoir and anodized aluminum base, the AMS-Oiler
is crafted to withstand severe service and to perform reliably
in any personal, commercial or industrial application.
Unlike other pre-charger systems, the AMS-Oiler
has no bulky moving parts which need maintenance and does not
rely on pressurized gas to function. The AMS-Oiler is a
self contained, streamlined unit that has a mechanical life cycle
exceeding one million engine starts, with no maintenance required.
The AMS-Oiler is self-lubricating with an integrated overpressure
protection device that protects units from retaining pressures
in excess of 90 p.s.i.
AMK-01 "bolt on"
In order to meet consumers needs, AMSOIL
has designed two AMS-Oiler models to cover all applications.
The first model, AMK01, is crafted to attach directly to the AMSOIL
Dual-Remote By-Pass Filtration Systems BMK13, 15 through 18. The
second model, AMK02, is designed as a stand-alone system. AMK01
and AMK02 are designed for pre-oiling engines up to 500 CID (cubic
inch displacement)(8.2L). The AMS-Oiler retro-fit applicability
to the AMSOIL By-Pass filtration systems provides a convenient
perch for quick installation. The stand-alone AMS-Oiler
mounts easily at any angle to accommodate virtually every engine.
The AMS-Oiler kit comes with all of the necessary components
to complete installation.
With the new AMS-Oiler, AMSOIL continues
to make lubrication history, with quality still the number one
the bolt on configuration, is designed for use in
combination with the BMK13, 15 through 18 Series Dual Remote Mount
is a stand-alone configuration designed for universal
application. The AMK02 can be used with any engine application
and mounts at any angle.

AMS-Oiler Market Applications
While every engine can benefit from the use of
an AMS-Oiler, vehicles especially prone to frequent starting
and engines that sit idle for extended periods of time would extend
their engine life with the simple addition of an AMS-Oiler.
An AMS-Oiler can provide the instant lubrication necessary
to save these engines significant wear and prevent damaging metal-on-metal
