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

Had a great experience with this shop. My car was leaking some nasty fluid and I was told it needed a transmission specialist by the shop I initially took it to. I was able to get in to mister transmission right away and when the problem was discovered, the shop brought the part to me at work to explain the issue. I was really impressed by this as I felt the shop wanted me to make the most informed decision I could. With that information they replaced the part and had me on my way in no time. My car drove home like a dream and was so much quieter. I would definitely bring my car here again. Great customer service, very friendly, great sense of humor and were able to make an experience repair much more bearable. Thank you Jenn and Travis!

Excellent experience. Went in with a shaking in my car and thought it was a transmission problem. They diagnosed it as a spark plug problem and didn't charge me. Excellent service I'll be back if there ever is an actual transmission issue. Thanks!!
