CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) Service & Repair Sault Ste Marie, 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.

Took my car in and they were able to help me and treated me like a actual person. They were very positive and helped me understand what needed to be done. I had no problems with them. They treated my car like their own and made sure that I understood what was going on.

The car went in exactly on time, the work was done very well & if you've got a CVT transmission they are the place to go in Sault Ste Marie - also done in exactly the timeframe I was given. I live way too far away to take them up on their offer to drive me home but it is a service they would seem to offer. I'll take my car to them anytime!

Joel Diotte
When Superior Nissan (right across the road) told me that the only fix to my car was an entire replacement with a brand new transmission (and then charged me for washing my car while they were inspecting it against my knowledge or wishes) I came to this location to get a second opinion. Immediately, I was given a price quote of less than half, the option to swap for a perfectly good used transmission, and it would be done in only a couple days, you're darn right these were the guys I was going to call on. They were done a day ahead of the expected date, shuttled me to and from my place while I waited, and got me back on the road so I could head south to work again. Can't recommend enough
