What is CVT?

CVT or continuously variable transmissions have become increasingly common, which means repairing them is more needed than ever. Fortunately, Cottman Transmission and Total Auto Care has expertly trained technicians to perform CVT transmission repairs on any make or model. Not sure if your car has this type of transmission? We can answer that for you! Common mechanical transmissions have a fixed number of gears that the car moves through while accelerating and decelerating. A CVT, by contrast, uses numerous gear ratios to optimize performance and efficiency. Where a normal car might struggle on an incline, a CVT makes small adjustments to maintain just the right amount of power.

Advice from Our Experts

Our team in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, believes that doing the job right means including the customer to help them feel informed and confident about what is exactly is going on with their car. To us, customer service means giving customers the whole picture. That’s why when you visit us for CVT repair, we’ll be happy to explain the details of how this machine is supposed to work in your car, and why it sometimes might not be working that way. We want drivers to be able to identify signs that their CVT transmission isn’t performing to par. Here are some issues to be on the lookout for:

  • Different Sounds: Over time, CVT transmission gears wear down and may not operate with the same precision. If you hear clunking, banging, or screeching, that’s a good sign that’s it time to get a Cottman Transmission technician to take a look.
  • Murky Fluid: More adept car people may inspect their car’s fluids from time to time to check for changes. If you’re one of these people and you notice the transmission fluid is muddied or contains debris, don’t hesitate to contact us and schedule a transmission fluid flush!
  • Strange Smell: In case you didn’t already know, burning smells coming from your car require professional attention. Especially if your car has a CVT transmission, burning smells are a concerning sign of a problem with the gears.
  • Leaks: Any leaks from your vehicle should be reported to your trusted transmission technician.
