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

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

Re: Shifts hard in Reverse and Drive P0701 Wrench light

Could be mechatronic unit I tried one out of a wrecker transmission I got for some parts and when I installed it that’s what mine did. Really hard engagement but also in limp mode. With my original mechatronic. It would also go into limp mode until oil warmed all the way up then I could clear PO 942...

Re: CVT "helicopter" noise - input shaft specs

Hi I fixed mine a couple of years ago and can send you some sizes tomorrow if you want. I had a good input shaft that could be measured by guy I sent it to if he hasn’t installed it yet. Let me know I check this a few times a day. Jim in wintry (finally) BC

Re: Is it necessary to change the filter with CVT fluid change?

That’s what my filter looked like at 213000 kms. I also wrecked a torx head was able to just tack a nut on it then it spun off easy enough would suggest using a 3/8 drive torx socket(number 27) with a hammer impact wrench. They will almost always work. Some wratchets can also be hammered on while tu...

Re: Throttle body HELP

I bought a used but lifetime guaranteed TCM for two hundred US from transmissionelectricstore and got whole mechatronic unit. My car wouldn’t get out of limp mode until transmission oil got up to 180 degrees fit. I bought a Scan tool so I could read oil temp once it got that warm I could clear my co...

Re: Throttle body HELP

Hi sounds a bit like mine after fixing helicopter noise(input shaft needle bearing) ended up being mechatronic was not sending temperature data correctly to PCM which was putting it in limp mode until oil warmed up. Is your problem showing wrench light?
