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

Craig was wonderful, very friendly and super efficient. His attitude was phenomenonal, treats you as if you're family. The work was done quickly and communication was better than anything I've ever experienced. Not only did he call and inform me in the process but sent pictures every step of the way. Best service I've had at a shop in recent memory. Will use these guys again in the future if ever needed.

Dave and the team did a wonderful job. It took them a little longer to diagnose the problem, but they communicated that well. I would rather have the proper work done and honestly than hastily. I would recommend this location to anyone for their honesty and work. Car runs like a dream. To whoever complains that their services take time, that's because there is quality to it, and people need to manage their expectations and reality.

Wilmer Gonzalez
June 2020, I took my car in to get it serviced. Was having an issue with my TCM and had it checked by multiple techs before coming to Mr. Transmission.To keep this short, I dealt with Jesse (sorry if im misspelling your name). I explained my issue, brought the car in, they did their diagnostic tests and diagnosed the issue within a few days of having the car. They ordered the part, programmed and installed by the end of the following week.Service was great (as the car is still running without an issue). great value for what i paid (the diagnostic was extensive..unlike other mechanics that i took my car to). Jesse and team are very professional and very informative.I have since recommended Jesse and team to my friends and family.

This is the second time I've visited Mr. Transmission. I originally contacted the location at jane and lawrence who advised they were swamped but put me in touch with someone at the Queensway location. Just as the previous experience, I have nothing but positive things to say. I would greatly recommend this location to anyone in need of automotive repairs.
