CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) Service & Repair Winnipeg, Manitoba

 

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.

Robert Bidder
Phil greeted me at the door and was friendly, courteous and professional throughout our conversation. He could tell I was immediately worried about the cost of services as I had a lengthy list of things that needed to be taken care of. After the mechanics checked over the vehicle Phil gave me a comprehensive quote of what needed to be done. He made me feel at ease with his professional demeanour. His team made short work of the things that needed to be rectified. When I went back to pick up my truck Phil professionally explained all the services that were performed. I’d say my overall experience was second to none. I’d highly recommend Mr Transmission for your service needs. Thanks Phil.

A thoroughly professional team of driveline specialists. It's amazing how quickly they identify the issue with transmission. The best part is that they take time to educate customer on what the issue is and why and what is the recommended solution - that's something which I found unique about them. They have a quick turnaround time and ensure that the customer has a pleasant experience with the overall service.
