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.

These guys (Chris & Dawn, and Crew) are absolutely amazing I couldn't recommend MR Transmission enough!! I have a 2016 f150 with the 6R80 and for a little while I had almost every symptom of a bad torque converter expecting to need a full rebuild, I called in a asked for a worst case scenario qoute and was asked to bring it in, I was expecting a $4-7k rebuild I was 90% sure it was the torque converter, with a quick scan and diagnostic it was found the output speed sensor had gone and Chris without looking at a book or a screen 1300$ was the qoute and 1250$ was the final price these guys know what they are doing but the most appreciated thing you guys did for me was rush the repair knowing I had no way to get home to wait for the repair to finish they allowed me to wait in the shop and offered me coffee I really appreciate you guys. thank you for being a HONEST shop you could've just said oh yeah needs a torque converter and i would've believed you, but you didn't so thank you I will be recommending you to anyone I come across in need of you're amazing services!

After finishing a 12 hour shift shovelling snow on Christmas Eve, our F150s transmission kicked the bucket on the way home. After postponing all of our Christmas plans and limping the truck to two shops in my neighbourhood and being told that our only option was replacing it with a used transmission, a family member told us he took his Mustang in to this exact location and had it rebuilt by Kris and the crew and the results could not have been better. So we called, and immediately knew that we would be in good hands here. They correctly identified the problem before they even popped the hood, the final cost was a hair under the quoted price and finished a few days ahead of schedule, they brought out a box of all the parts they pulled out and walked us through the process, offer free checkups afterwards, and on top of all this they are confident enough in the work to offer a 2 year warranty - something no other shop would do for rebuilds. You will not find a transmission repair shop with more professional service nor one that will offer you more peace of mind. By far the best experience with a mechanic we have ever had, and I cannot recommend them enough.

The mechanics looked over my sons truck and ran diagnostics on my sons truck for no cost; then they took the time to give us numerous suggestions to stop the code being triggered on the computer. Excellent advice and saved us A LOT of issues, thus saving us money. My son needed to tweak a few things and keep moisture out to prevent a “big thing” from happening.. there’s more to it but the point is they went out of their way to explain and give helpful suggestions. Female staff member goes above and beyond for customer service, warm smile and welcoming demeanour and full of great information. Very helpful, informative, friendly staff .. again the services they shared were all free of charge just to help my son out. Above and beyond expectations!
