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.

Oil leaking out of my...
Teresa Falcone
Oil leaking out of my vehicle so I took it to my regular mechanic. The leak was quite terrible. I was informed it would cost me $1800.00 plus taxes to fix the vehicle. He told me that the job was quite extensive and would take over a week to fix. SO I WAS THEN REFERRED TO KEN (by one of my friends) at Mister Transmission. Stressed and worried...... I called Ken and discussed the issue with him. He really put my mind at ease soI had the vehicle towed over to him....turns out the problem is not as extensive as i was told .Ken took care of me and saved me over $1400.00!!! Problem solved and I couldn't be happier. I will definitely recommend this location to my friends and family! Outstanding service . Honest and thorough. Great job Ken ! Thanks again!

Highly recommend this location! Ken is the best. Mr. Ken Barone is an amazing automotive technician, he know his stuff, he fixed my car left wheel noise problems in mins. It's been 16 months, the problem never came out again, and now my old corolla is steady and in a very good condition. I think it's necessary to write a great review again for this location, especially in this difficult time. If your car has a problem, go to this location, Ken will fix your problem.
