Abstract: Gear box performance is dependent on viscosity of lubricant oil and due to the thermal effect of heat generated in side of an oil span of gear box. Thus if we change properties of an oil, the performance of gear box does change. The effect on gear box performance will be studied by CFD Analysis. CFD analysis of gear box is carried out for different viscosity oils. For the analysis purpose design of Maruti Omni’s gear box is used. Compression of thermal analysis is done for different viscosity oils are SAE 85W 140 (High Grade), SAE 85W 140 (Commercial), SAE 80W 90 (High Grade),SAE 80W 90 (Commercial), SAE 75W 90 (High Grade),SAE 75W 90 (Commercial),SAE EDIB (Suggested Oil). So it is proved that suggested oil SAE EDIB is better than available market oils.
