Under fluctuating environmental and operational condition gears failed. The failure modes of the gears are divided in two categories lubricated (pitting, flank wear etc.) and strength based.  The failure modes associated to the lubrication can be avoided and minimized by proper selection of the lubricant. In the present work a review of different type of oil used for the gearbox, and additives is presented. Further the selection process based on the AGMA standard AGMA 9005 is discussed.
