CVT problem. Suggestions?

Postby enigma » November 3rd, 2011, 3:52 pm

When the car starts in the morning, the gears dont engage until, say after 10 mins. 20 on a cold morning. As if it has to warm up. If i keep my foot on the gas heavy it will engage but with a violent jerk, which i prefer not to do. Transmission works fine otherwise.

Anyone had this problem before or knows how to troubleshoot it?

And lemme guess, a swap is cheaper than a rebuild?

I was told that the cvt has a pump that goes bad. Can anyone confirm? Or deny?

The two problems are different. If the car does not move off on a morning it is the starter on the transmission that is bad. Had mines changed recently. It cost $500 for the starter at Seenaths F/U or I suggest you check Jenson in Aranguez cause the tranny needs to be calibrated after changing the starter. Don't go by any mechanic. It is electrical. The second problem means the transmission oil needs changing. I have had these problems with both ek3 and es1 civics I owned

this happened to my cousin's es8, a mechanic friend of ours said it was the torque converter, I called his opinion BS, he proved me wrong, he pulled it, did some secret repair to it and bam, works like new...a couple other 'honda' mechanics said he'd have to change the cvt trans...they too were proved wrong...go figure...

1ST Smart comment. dudes d only problem here is the clutch rubber gets hard after a few years, only thing dat can help is pour in a 1/2 bottle of brakes fluid and it will soften the clutches and give u a few weeks until u can CHANGE the tranny.. However in Nissan trannys, the brakes fluid lasts much longer. jus make sure and change ur tranny oil every 20000kms and ul be good 2 go

...having the same problem...how did you eventually resolve? I am thinking the best bet is taking it to Jenton and have them replace with foreign used one....they said should cost about 5k for transmission and labour and some warranty...
