CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) Service & Repair Markham, 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.

I have a 2015 Mazda 3 with automatic transmission. It is having jerking issue at 2nd gear when the car is cold. One of my known mechanic suggested Ken for transmission issues. I went there and parked my car overnight to make sure it is cold. In morning, Ken drove it and figure out instantly it was a computer mechanism trying to save fuel by engaging clutch and gear differently, which is normal and I should not spend any money on it. I liked Ken's experience and knowledge and his guidance which saved me going broke.

Ralf Wieser
Ken was very patient, listened to my issue, and made the appropriate service recommendation - this had to do with the torque converter. He cares about his clients and is willing to suggest and try things that could avoid a significant service activity. It worked ... I am a happy customer.

Igor Nikolaenko
Thanks a lot Ken. I've just bought a used Subaru and it was shaking on acceleration. I thought that it was a transmission, but after Ken diagnose the car it was 5th cylinder misfire. Much cheaper fix.

Well, where do I start, first of all Ken is a great person to work with, gets dependable results on his repairs with very fair pricing. He understands that his customers are all trying to make a living just like him and he goes over and beyond to make your repair costs as reasonable as possible. He rebuilt my transmission about a year and half ago, my warranty had expired, I had a small shifting issue last week, I went to see him, he quickly tested and resolved my issues within 24/36 hours and had me back on road. That is great customer service which seems to be almost non existent now a days. Fantastic work Ken, I will always appreciate everything that you have done for me and my 2016 Dodge Caravan.

I wish I could rate more than 5 stars. Ken's expertise is truly exceptional. My Toyota Venza encountered a transmission issue, but Ken swiftly resolved it with remarkable efficiency. His patience and professionalism were evident throughout the process. I wholeheartedly endorse this establishment. Thank you, Ken, for your outstanding service.
