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

Highly recommend! Excellent Service. My jeep transmission had been slipping gears for months Ajax dealership kept telling me nothing was wrong with it. Jeep is 2020 under warranty. They still changed the transmission but nothing was wrong. The problem continued it was getting dangerous to drive. Took it to Mister Transmission in Whitby within an hour they had it diagnosed. It was dangerous and jeep is telling me they can’t “reenact” the problem. Gave them the codes Jeep won’t listen cuz they can’t diagnose the issue. As I write this it is back at another Jeep location who has now called a transmission specialist. Sean and Denise at Mister Transmission are amazing. Highly recommend this shop! Had my jeep not been under warranty it would be at Mister Transmission where I would have felt safe driving it after they fixed it! It would have been done right!
