CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) Service & Repair
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
- 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.

Exemplary service - I called on a Saturday and was told I could come in first thing Monday morning for my car to be assessed. Within 30 minutes I had a call back with a diagnosis of the problem and an estimate for amount and when the work would be complete. Neil answered all of my questions, put me at ease and had my car back to me by end of day! Could not ask for anything more - aside from winning my repair!!
