CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) Service & Repair Calgary, Alberta

 

A traditional automatic transmission uses a complex series of gears to transfer the engine’s power to the wheels. A CVT is a type of automatic transmission, but it has no gears at all. Instead, it uses a pulley and belt system to provide an unlimited range of gear ratios. Popular auto makers, such as Nissan, Toyota, Subaru, Chrysler and Honda, are introducing CVT’s to their model lineups to offer customers an option with improved acceleration and enhanced fuel economy.

CVT Common Problems

CVT’s are still relatively new to the market and can be very difficult and complicated to diagnose and repair. While CVT’s have fewer moving parts and are simpler in design, it is new technology and our technicians have completed extensive training specific to CVT’s and are well qualified to work with your vehicle.

Come common problems to look out for with your CVT include:

  • Transmission ‘jerking’, slipping, grinding or jumping during acceleration when the car is shifting gears
  • Noisy while driving – some customers have issues with a ‘whining’, ‘clanging’ or ‘rattling’ sound while driving especially with Nissan CVT’s
  • Contaminated or low transmission fluid
  • Overheating
  • Check Engine Light On
  • Gears changing at high RPM

My vehicle is showing at least one of these signs, what should I do?

If you suspect your CVT transmission is not performing as it should be, bring it in to your local Mister Transmission. We always start with our FREE Road Test and Multi Check Inspection to identify any problems with your transmission and provide you with different repair options. The key to minimizing repair costs is to get them checked as soon as you notice them, and you most likely only need a minor repair or service.

It is a rarity when...
Renee Lauzon
It is a rarity when you come across an honest mechanic who puts looking out for your vehicles safety and longevity as well as the the owners best interests firsthand. Although I was not happy with the news that I received from Kris (honest mechanic) he did help me get my lemon (my SUV) on the road again and even offered to inspect my next used vehicle prior to purchasing it FOR FREE!!! When was the last time you received a diagnostic check on your vehicle without having to pay?I thought Kris was a straight forward, no BS, and very kind mechanic that everyone wit a vehicle needs!!! Thank you Mister Transmission, You are my newest BFF!!!🤗

My motorhome broke down and my transmission rebuild cost was quoted $3000.00 higher at another shop. I spoke with Chris at length about the transmission and he really knows what he is talking about. He has special equipment other shops do not, don't risk it, Mister Transmission is the real deal!

Ryan Walker
I can't really say enough about how amazing these guys are to deal with. Absolutely amazing workmanship. Went in there for an R154 install in my 2J MK4 supra and they nailed it. Some hiccups as with anything custom, but these guys are good - really good. Better yet, more than fair as well. I'm really glad I didn't do this job myself as it got pretty hairy, but Kris and team pulled it off. Thank you very much guys - there will be more donuts in your future :)

Mr. Transmission rebuilt the rear differential in my Mercedes E350 4matic at a fraction of the cost of a new one. They did an excellent job and figured it out as no shop manual exists, even for Mercedes! I found the parts, they did the rest. A big thanks to Kris and his team!

Chris Potvin
Great honest shop. Took in my 97 Honda CRV based on a referral and was not steered in the wrong direction. He took the time to give me a call with an update and took all the necessary steps to let me know that it was indeed, not worth the waste of money in fixing my transmission. The whole process was very transparent, and I am confident in saying that this will be my transmission shop going forward. Highly recommend Mister Transmission.
