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.

LISA WAPPLE
I was referred to Mr Transmission (on 1A St SE Calgary) from my tire shop; Mr Transmission was able to get to me very promptly. My truck is only 5 years old, it was very stressful and frustrating. Mr Transmission also gave me a very kind discount. The staff was phenomenal and I was treated like family you love. I will definitely be referring anyone I know that has transmission needs to go there.🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Kris, Dawn & the whole team at Mr Transmission were awesome.I was working out of town when the transmission went out of our F150 while my wife was driving it. They treated her with class and respect. They got the truck in quickly and installed a rebuilt transmission while accommodating my quick trip home.Obviously transmission work isn't free, but these guys provide above & beyond excellent service, tremendous value for the money, a wonderful sense of humour, and candy on the front counter.Thanks Team Kris

I was greeted with a smil’n face & great NRG. My 99 Tahoe transmission was surging/ clunk’n @ high speeds. Chris had it for half a day & ran diagnostics on her. Turns out the truck had been run’n on a fuse that was missing. I’m grateful I was treated with respect. Thank you, I’ll be back, hopefully it will be awhile. 🙏

Came in with a dying Subaru CVT and was immediately treated to the worst supply chain issues 2021 could throw at me, but Chris didn't shrink in the face of adversity. In what must have been a Herculean effort, he scoured the highways and byways until the correct parts were found and ensured to work properly. I can't overstate how much work was put into my poor car here, they fully earned 5 stars. Many businesses would have walked away after the sheer number of issues we encountered, but Mr Transmission lived up to his name!
