CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) Service & Repair Lindsay, Ontario

 

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.

Dave Irwin
I had to spend thousands of dollars to fix my transmission. That part sucked but the fellow I dealt with was fair in my opinion. And that soothed the sting a little. Nothing bad to say, fast and courteous.

Charise Arscott
Jim spent the time to phone around to locate a supplier for transmission parts for the rare transmission on my 1994 car. Neither the car dealership nor the usual aftermarket suppliers stocked the part, which is not manufactured anymore. Jim found a guy who knew a guy who imported a kit from the U.S. I recommend this shop. Great service, Jim!

My 2012 caravan decided it did not want to shift out of first gear, had CAA tow it there. Jim checked the codes, every sensor , checked and cleaned all electrical connections and took it on 3 test drives but could not reproduce the issue. Nothing but great service as I think he went the extra mile to make sure there was nothing wrong with it before handing it back to me,at no cost. Great service
