Re: CVT Fluid Level and Code P0701

Just a thought. When the transmission is really cold, the bypass for the trans filter should be opening on startup. When the fluid is at it's coldest, the pressure differential between the fluid before and after the filter will be at its highest, and the filter should go into bypass. The fact that ...

Re: CVT Fluid Level and Code P0701

I'm having the exact same problem. We have had some dramatic temp shifts: 47 during the day and drops tozero overnight with frost on the windows. When the car is started it runs fine till it is put into drive. The wrench light will either come on immediately PR after taking off. I took it to a tran...

Re: CVT Fluid Level and Code P0701

The fluid doesn't look bad. The discoloration is pretty typical (mine looks similar and I drain/fill every 30K). If it's clear on the dipstick, it's still fairly clear--and color isn't a great indicator of fluid condition anyway. The fluid looks not to be at the top range of acceptable, so you're g...

Re: CVT Fluid Level and Code P0701

Jose, make sure the car is running when you do the check--that may have something to do with it. I've always had very different reading when hot and cold. It could be that it's so far over the level that you can't tell the difference? Thanks again. Here pictures from new test with car running after...

Re: CVT Fluid Level and Code P0701

um....yikes! Are you checking the fluid on level ground, running and in neutral? If so, you have WAY too much fluid in there--at least a quart, possibly two. The transmission is definitely fluid level-sensitive, so I'd start by draining some fluid. Honestly, I don't even think I drive it without dr...
