WTK: Fielder CVT

Postby eg8 » January 26th, 2014, 5:03 pm

Hey toyota fellas, I have a 2008 fielder which has CVT transmission, one of my friends who works toyota suggested that I install an oil cooler, he said it helps on saving the transmission. Have anyone of you heard this or tried it before?

Yea I heard about it also read about installing a oil cooler online to help preserve the tranny life .
I also have a fielder with cvt tyranny but haven't installed an oil cooler yet.
What I do is change my oil regularly.

Well regular can be both checked by mileage and by date.
From what I've read on the net and what I've been told by some transmission ppl some recommend 20k/km, 40k/km,50k/km.
Some recommend 6 months, 8 months, 1 year.
It's all due to your driving habits.
Long high speed driving.
Plenty Maracas.
Plenty stop n go traffic.
So that's where you decide what regular is and how it applies to you.
(My opinion)the addition of the oil cooler is the best option.

yeh it does respond much quicker than the 1500....peak performance on tuner has mishimoto the transmission cooler for 650 and the heavy duty mishimoto with fan for 1099...he said they also have other chinese frands for 5** up.....

I thought I could have installed myself but i still looking for my transmission lines...not seeing it coming to the radiator like my other vehicles

For anyone else who's looking for them....go under the car look at the sump pan on the passenger side that's the transmission oil sump (i think they call it)...ne ways the 2 lines are easily seen

I recently bought an '08 1.5 141 Fielder and would like to know it there are any symptoms when the trans fluid needs changing, because while driving I sometimes hear an indistinct "woooo" inside the car. Has anyone found a service centre capable of doing a proper change procedure on the trans fluid?

Thanks for the info. I don’t mean to belabour the point but do they ensure that the fluid doesn’t exceed the correct level, and have you personally used any of them?

I used autonation already....will try Jenton this month
The machine ensures the exact amt of fluid that goes in is the same amt that comes out....

I read somewhere that the fluid capacity is between 3.8 and 4.0 litres, and that if it's overfilled it can do irreparable damage to the trans. Where do you get the fluid to buy and is it the Toyota CVT-TC fluid?

I haven't installed one, but up to today the thought crossed my mind to do it. A good mechanic can do it for you, but if you're so inclined you can diy, it will help you to connect more with your ride.

oil cooler will mount infront the radiator, n the tranny oil that goes to the vehicles (factory oil cooler) can then leave that oil cooler and enter the aftermarket oil cooler....comes like double cooling......some oil cooler (heavy duty) comes with a fan....some dont
