CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) Service & Repair Moncton, New Brunswick

 

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.

Dex Z.
My transmission had a major breakdown. Our vehicle was taken to Mr. Transmission, they were working on my vehicle the very next morning. Chris called me to inform me that the transmission was done.Chris dug deep into why and was able to find the issue. A manufacturer rebuilt transmission was installed by the next day. There were issues with that transmission.Chris and his crew were on it right away. One employee came to work early morning to work on it . The issue was not so easily found.Chris and his crew worked on my vehicle well into the night and into the days following and did not give up until it was fixed.In the end it was a manufacturer's defect and was resolved only by the tenacity of Chris and his crew.During this whole issue I was to be on holidays and Chris knew this and offered me a rental. I chose to hold off until the Monday. Chris worked on it that Saturday all day and he may even have worked on it Sunday I'm not sure.Come Monday my van was ready and when it came time to pay.... No charge. Manufacturers defect.I know that many warranties cover only the part and not the labor. Chris would take no money. He paid for the labor as well as shop materials. This I know was at his own expense and wouldn't take anything.His crew also found a shot wheel bearing during this. I was informed and they replaced it with my permission Thanks guys,I knew it was going and I appreciate you did this for me.During all the time they worked on it I got daily updates and was very happy.I wouldn't hesitate to recommend his company to anyone.Chris and his crew were very honest and straightforward.I have worked in the automotive business in the past and have met many a mechanic and I have to say I would be proud to work beside any one of his people.I am writing this while enjoying my holidays which were made possible by Mr. Transmission  and his crew Moncton.I just can't say enough about how happy I am with my tranny and the professional way I was treated.Shout out to Janna and Kirk for all the work they do for their customers, they made me feel like I mattered.Thanks very much Chris your honesty and professionalism is really appreciated.
