Re: CFT30--CVT TRANS HELP NEEDED.. PARTS ETC..

Just a note the blue angle iron pieces were threaded to 5/8” reddi-rod which was also bolted through the piece of flat plate. This was used to hold down primary variator. I had to take it apart to get the input shaft sleeved cuz the bearing chewed it up before it completely exploded.

Re: CVT Issue

Hi again think it was USATransmissionparts. Look up CFT30 TCM and they will come up. My phone seems to have lost all my communications with them via EMails so I just looked for the ad again.

Re: CVT Issue

Hi Geoff I purchased a scan tool last summer(2018) so was able to read everything readable concerning mechatronic oil pressures etc. And with original unit all the oil pressures were within spec as they were with new to me unit so I don’t think I had any issues with any of the feed tube o rings. The...

Re: CVT Issue

Thinking the TCM on the mechatronic unit is doing the same thing mine did. Once it warmed up to 180 fat I could clear limp mode. Got a good used one for 200 us$ and had no more issues with that. But then sounds like my oil pump blew a spring. Sadness it sits again.

Re: P0701 when hot - limp home mode

P701 usually is a mechatronic issue. I had to change mine to resolve a limp mode scenario until tranny oil warmed up. Never heard of it being the other way. If you can check the two oil pressure readings with a scan tool then that may tell you if the TCM on mechatronic is acting up.

Re: Rebuilt CVT - "CHECK TRANSMISSION" - What did I mess up?

Hi Jim here in British Columbia. I took mine apart a couple of years ago and replaced small needle bearing but didn’t redo all seals. Mine seemed to be stuck in limp mode(orange wrench light with po942 code) until oil warmed up. Bought a scan tool after much procrastinating and got oil pressure valu...

Re: Helicopter noise

My 2007 lasted about two months before the small needle bearing completely fell apart. Finally fixed it and drove three weeks then started ticking really bad in or out of park or neutral I suspect tranny oil pump. Maybe a broken spring. Sad really everything else was working ok. Jim

Re: Shifts hard in Reverse and Drive P0701 Wrench light

The valve body can be Re worked but the TCM can only be replaced as far as I know.
