CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) Service & Repair Richmond Hill, 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.

Simon Jiang
I brought my car in for a differential fluid change. The staff was polite and respectful. However, there was a slight hiccup due to a miscommunication. Upon raising this issue, the owner Jason listened to my concerns patiently and took swift action to rectify the situation. This experience demonstrated their remarkable sense of responsibility and integrity. Adding to my praise for this business, they excelled in resolving a persistent noise issue with my vehicle. Through their diagnosis during a test drive, they traced the problem to the rear wheel bearing. After the replacement, the noise was gone, and the drive is much more smooth. Overall great experience. Will definitely come again.

Thank you Jason for diagnosing...
Kristine Sixteen
Thank you Jason for diagnosing my car transmission issue that I've been dealing with for months. Realizing it's a warranty issue that most likely won't cost me very much at all is good news after I've already thrown almost $4000 into it. Honesty & integrity are characteristics I don't see very often these days, and you definitely have that. Super happy someone finally listened to me. Looking forward to finally having it fixed properly. Definitely 5 stars, you've gone above and beyond. I am so very appreciative of everything. Thanks again!

The new owner Jason is much better than the old owner Gary, who is racist, everytime when I called in, he said sorry I don’t understand you. In fact my English IELT is 7.0. Jason is much different, he is very friendly & professional, and most of all, his new team is the master. New sheriff in town. Highly recommended!
