WHAT MAKES THE CVT TRANSMISSION TO JERK? AND SLIP?
as i take off from stop sign my car would jerk and leter as i get on
the highway and go over 60 mph my rpm hand would go up and
down 1000 rpms higher and lower as i go uphill slightly and as i go
slightly downhill i would feel a intermittant vibration then as i step on
the gas pedal the rpm hand goes back down to 3 when i drive 70
mph is this normal? on a cvt transmission?
It is a Nissan CVT which may be the worst transmission ever made. You should complain to the dealer ans ask for a new transmission even if your warranty has expired. Nissan knows these transmissions are a disaster. If that does not work complain directly to Nissan of America.
plus i can hear the gear grinding sounds around 40 mph when i turn the overdrive button off it feels like your not going out of the 1st gear
It's actually not a chain but a metal belt, and once it starts making noise unless it is torn down and fixed immediately the other friction surfaces are badly damaged , plus the fine metal particulates get into everything, so the bottom line is you need a new tranny, do what F_O_R stated you might get lucky.
I mean it's obvious that part is going to fail, metal just can't stand that kind of flexing even if it is soaked in oil, they should leave CVT's to the scooters where they came from.
Yup! Rubber belts that can be changed in a couple of minutes. I had an old Gator with a CVT and it worked fairly well but service was just a matter of a new belt.
is that normal to hear the cvt at night with the radio off? it sounds like 2 marbles in a plastic cup being shaked hard
I doubt that is a normal sound.
mainly as my car was on cruize control at 65 mph tonight i felt my car pulling and not this cvt transmission is very annoying
