CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) Service & Repair Beechville, Nova Scotia

 

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.

You don't want to have to go to a transmission shop but if you do, you want to go to this one in Beechville. The transmission light on my dash came on and these good people ran a diagnostic, explained what was going on and sent me on my way, all at no charge. They also recommended where to take my VW Jetta for a good tune up. This is the kind of place you don't forget. Thank you!

Awesome staff and service! They couldn't fix my vehicle because it was not the transmission (my mechanic said it was transmission issues that's why I went to see them), they did give me a ball park on prices for the parts that do need to be replaced though. They put my mind at ease during a stressful situation. They were also very good at explaining to someone that knows nothing about cars what the issue was and what needed to be done. Thank you to the man at the front desk and the mechanic (gentleman with hazel eyes) that looked at my car, you guys rock!

I cannot thank Jason and the mister transmission team enough for the transmission work they did on my vehicle, after a lot of running around between different shops trying to get answers and get work done on my vehicle Jason and his team took on my vehicle without a hiccup. The process was at smooth as it gets, parts were easily accessible for my vehicle, they had it on Monday and it was done Tuesday just like he said it would be. He was communicative throughout the process, there were no hidden surprises. As soon as I drove my vehicle off the lot I could feel the difference- it was driving the way I knew it should be ! I couldn’t be happier. I am incredibly grateful and appreciative of their time and work. Highly recommend this team and location to anyone needing work done.
