What is Dodge CVT Transmissions?

Some of the newer Dodge vehicles, such as the Dodge Caliber, have a CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) option available to provide customers with improved acceleration and enhanced fuel economy.

A CVT transmission is a type of automatic transmission, however, it operates without any physical gears by using a belt and pulley system for an unrestricted range of gear ratio. The CVT is the part of the car that turns engine rotations into torque; allowing one to drive at variable speeds. It is important to note that although several manufacturers have started using CVT’s in their newer models, each design is slightly different. At Mister Transmission, our technicians have completed extensive training specific to each Dodge vehicle make and model, and specialize in CVT transmissions to ensure you receive high-quality repairs that last.

What are the common problems?

A few signs to look for that might indicate a transmission problems

  • Transmission ‘jerking’, slipping, grinding or jumping during acceleration when the car is shifting gears
  • Shaking or Vibrating feeling when driving
  • Leaking Fluid
  • Burning Smell
  • Check Engine Light On

How to Diagnose Transmission Problems?

CVT’s are still relatively new to the market and can be very difficult and complicated to diagnose and repair. Our technicians have completed extensive training specific to CVT’s and are well qualified to work with your vehicle. If you have a CVT in your vehicle, you should try and prevent any costly repairs with regular transmission service and always check your vehicle for any unexplained leaks.

The first step in determining your transmission problems consists of the technician connecting the diagnostic equipment to your vehicle’s on-board computer. This will produce a code stating where the problem lies. Following this, the vehicle should be taken for a test drive so that the technicians can monitor the transmission’s behaviour in real-time. While more comprehensive and hands-on evaluations might still be necessary, today’s diagnostic technology is an integral tool in determining the best starting point for further investigations.

The crew at Mr. Transmission in Winnipeg on Pembina Highway were helpful from the moment we discovered our transmission was in need of repair. Neil and Blair were helpful and accommodating over the phone, and the service was completed quickly. Appreciate the peace of mind knowing that the warranty is national and is 3 years, something all other service providers are unable to offer. Would definitely recommend transmission and repair work with Mr. Transmission based on my first experience with them...
