CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) Service & Repair St Catharines, 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.

Lauren McIntosh
I had the most positive experience in my dealings with Eric, at Mr. Transmission, St. Catharines. Eric is very skilled and knowledgeable. He was able to diagnosis and fix the transmission in my 2002 Saturn at a very reasonable cost. At another service, it was going to cost me in the thousands to replace my transmission. Eric kept me informed through diagnosis to repair. It was my good fortune that I followed the recommendation to go to Mr. Transmission.

Highly Recommended. My transmission wouldn't go into gear. Eric arranged a FREE tow back to his shop. He went above and beyond for service, during the installation he noticed something small he missed on the quote and included it free. Everything is working flawless now, very reasonably priced, great service. He even waited past closing hours so I could pickup my SUV. 10/10
