CVTs, or continuously variable transmissions, have long been a hot topic in the transmission repair industry, but we can safely say they’re here to stay. So what do you do when one shows up at your shop? In this podcast, with Dave Hritsko of Transtar as featured guest, we dive in to the ins and
On the maintenance side, a continuously variable transmission (CVT) requires more or the same frequency of fluid and filter changes as a conventional automatic transmission, and many of the basic procedures are the same. On the diagnostic side, a CVT transmission is less complicated internally than a six- or nine-speed transmission. Like any automatic transmission,
In the ongoing quest to improve fuel efficiency, domestic and foreign OEMs turned to Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) technologies as a solution. In 1989 Subaru introduced the first modern automotive CVT in the U.S., the subcompact Justy model. Other automakers began developing their own CVTs throughout the 1990s and they are even more popular today
