Re: CVT Issue

Agreed. I'll have to see if I can use my scantool to determine this. I do have multiple pressure related codes when it's in this condition, and then they clear and stay cleared. Seems like if it was a pressure sensor issue it would be a single one.

Re: CVT Issue

I do wonder if the problem is due to the feed tube seals on the mechatronic assembly and/or the variator circuit seals as mentioned in this article. Most of the codes it talks about at the front of the article on p4 are what was present. https://atracom.blob.core.windows.net/gears/2013/2013-10/2013_...

Re: CVT Issue

Interesting. The new filter is an aftermarket one since I couldn’t find an gasket easily to match oem . I have to say that the new filter is fairly easy to pull off by hand and like you the old filter fell off with the pan. Nevertheless the symptom is the same. A trip to o Reilly’s and using their t...

Re: CVT Issue

Yeah that is a concern of mine, but I figure filter and fluid should be the first step. When you replaced the mechatronic did you look at the condition of the solenoids and valve body seals? Also did you have to reflash it at the dealer?

Re: CVT Issue

Has anyone used Pentosin CVT1 fluid in these trans? I see it specifically cross references XT-7-QCFT on it's manufacturer's datasheet.

Re: CVT Issue

Well, "pink" is a little subjective in this case. It's certainly a grungy color, so I could see how someone might interpret it more of a brown. :)

Re: CVT Issue

My feeling is that the issues must be related to fluid pressure which I would think most likely candidate would be a clogged high pressure filter.

CVT Issue

Let's play guess the problem! My in laws have a 2007 Freestyle AWD. When they first got it a few months ago everything ran fine, but now they get an intermittent wrench and check engine light. I tried pulling the codes and they are all over the place. They haven't been totally consistent from one sc...
