What is Ford CVT Transmissions?

Many of the newer Ford vehicles 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 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 Ford vehicle make and model, and specialize in CVT transmission 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
  • Overheating
  • Contaminated transmission fluid – check for leaks
  • Check Engine Light On
  • Gears changing at high RPM

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.

Sierra Johnston
I know didly-squat about cars and had a transmission issue, so I brought it here.Eric diagnosed the issue and could have easily just fixed it and taken my money, but instead he referred me back to Ford because he knew the repair for my particular issue was included in an extended warranty. I got the repairs done for free the following day and Eric didn't charge me a dime for his time or diagnostic.I highly recommend Mister Transmission even without having got my repairs done here- they really do care about their customers.
