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

I have a very rare 2009 Chevrolet Trailblazer SS that I trust very few people to work on. The Stoney Creek location (Dan) went out of their way to not only completely rebuild the transmission but fix other problems along the way thinking outside the box. I highly recommend this place to all.

Jemis Rahana
Dan Is it an upstanding guy He is honest down to earth straightforward I brought in my Porsche Panamera he was so honest that he told me that they don’t have the software to do it, but he could fix it, but there was no software for that vehicle at that location so he recommended me another spot. Thank god because everything worked out perfectly. I don’t know what to do. I don’t know where to go. He guided me he was such a humanitarian person. I leave honest reviews you could even check my other reviews I leave bad reviews, good reviews, great reviews and this one deserves a five star clean location, friendly staff overall if you have cars that need to be worked on this is the first place you should take it if you live in Hamilton he scan my car he told me what was wrong with it so nobody else could play with me. I am just so glad I discovered this location. I am going to recommend it to my mother and my father and family friends
