CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) Service & Repair Guelph, ON
A CVT is a type of automatic transmission, but it’s different than traditional automatic transmissions. CVTs provide a smoother driving experience because they have optimized the shifting process. When driving a CVT, you might well notice that the transition between gears becomes near seamless. But there are other advantages to CVTs, too. CVTs can provide better fuel economy and more efficient power usage because they permit the engine to operate at optimum power, regardless of how fast the vehicle is traveling. This all boils down to CVTs being “continuously variable”. It means that instead of actual gear “stages”, the CVT allows for a continuous variation within the engine so that you can’t even notice the transition between gears.
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.
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.
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
– Contaminated transmission fluid – check for leaks
– Noisy in Neutral – If you feel your car ‘bumping’ or ‘clanging’, this could indicate your transmission fluid needs to be topped up
– Check Engine Light On
– Gears changing at high RPM
My vehicle is showing at least one of these signs, what should I do?
