Cvt Transmission : The cvt is known as the continuously variable transmission which is a transmission with no set gear ratios. An infinite gear ratio is achieved by using 2 sprockets and a chain. Very similar to a 10 speed bicycle, the sprockets open and close changing the gear ratios to what the transmission module mimics as a shifting transmission with help of a small valve body. The cvt transmission has far less moving parts than a traditional automatic transmission.
The main disadvantage to these transmissions are there are not many replaceable parts for most models nor tools to repair them. Most cvt transmissions must be replaced when failed either with a used or new cvt transmission unit. If you experience cvt transmission problems, call Guy’s Automotive and see what options you have for repairs or replacement.
