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

They did an awesome job on my 2014 jeep compass, manual transmission. Was having issues with it jerking in 2,3 and starting on 4th gear. Came to them for a second opinion thinking it was clutch (it wasn't). After testing her and doing a full careful inspection they figured out the issue (computer). They pre ordered the part and it was good to go thereafter. I definitely would recommend them, and will be going back for routine inspections. Thank you everyone, you did awesome!! To Mark and his whole team! Definitely gave me a piece of mind and she works better than ever!

We dealt with Mark at Mister Transmission St Thomas for a transmission rebuild on a 16 Dodge Journey. The repairs went smoothly and in a timely manner. The client was very happy they were able to get their vehicle back the same week before the long weekend. Thank you for everything. Tim Ford, Claims Manager, Nationwide Auto Warranty.

John Allen
Mark and his staff are friendly and professional. Mark walked through the issues and the cause with me. He gave me options for repairs to the transmission and helped me feel secure in the decisions made. Transmission repair is never cheap but I don't find the final bill outrageous in comparison either. I feel good recommending Mr Transmission in St. Thomas.
