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

Had this place do a full CVT transmission service on my 2010 Nissan Altima 2.5 S model on Oct 6, 2023. Noah the apprentice tech is also the front desk person. He priced & explained everything effectively. Obviously he is well trained by the owner Kyle who I also had the chance to speak with. The main tech Mike is a well seasoned veteran who has a huge knowledge base. He mentored & showed Noah the entire process, plus Noah did some things with Mike standing right there. Mike is probably mid 50s & his knowledge base & experience is hard to find anywhere. Mister Transmission on Bank St in Ottawa is fortunate to have these 2 men on their team. These 2 men did the job for around $400 tax in, when others wanted significantly more & the front desk staff of others couldn't explain the process as well as Mister Transmission did. Some others said there were only 1 filter to change, others said none, but Mister Transmission said there were 2. Look, trust your transmission & driveline repairs to the experts that only do transmission & driveline work. They do it everyday. This has to be an added value. I am straight up & I haven't been paid or coached to give this great review. I am not related to anyone there. If I am not happy, I say it. If I am pleased I tell everyone. Trust Mister Transmission on Bank St in Ottawa or Edgewater Dr in Kanata. They are both owned franchises of Kyle, who obviously cares about the work they put out.
