Re: Possible CVT Issue P0961

Had tranny overtemp code P0218. On interstate in limp mode for 40 min. less than 55 mph. Got off I-10 then after first stop light could not get out of low gear[3500-3800 rpm, 35mph}. The high revs probably latched the overtemp code and slightly burned the fluid. After getting off I-10 travelled abou...

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

... like a clutch is slipping, engine RPMs go up with very slow increase in speed. Never seems to shift out of "first". I'm getting codes P0701-E0, P0961-60, P0871-60, along with an obvious "hiss" from one of the pulley covers that wasnt there before the rebuild. Monitored PIDs PCA_MES (Main Pressure ...

Re: Possible CVT Issue P0961

Ended up replacing the DEM and that took care of the codes. For now it doesn't seem that it was CVT related (this time). HOWEVER, i'm still getting the sensation that I'm going over mini speed bumps when turning and accelerating at slow speeds or going up hill. I don't want to spend any more time/mo...

Re: Possible CVT Issue P0961

I am not a mechanic, but it seems to me that you have chosen the wrong way. I would try to replace the solenoid A (or clean), check the seals, replace cvt filters

Re: Possible CVT Issue P0961

Looks like this viewtopic.php?t=6015 is the route I'm taking. Hopefully the new DEM works out and fixes the issues. I'll post how it works out.

Possible CVT Issue P0961

My '06 FS had been running a little funny. It felt like a rear differential issue. Recently the check engine came on and I pulled a code P0961. From the forum it looks like this code usually comes with a handful of others. Pressure control solenoid A is what the designation seems to be. I'm ...

Re: 2006 Freestyle Transmission issue P0961, P0871, P0701, P0811, and P0868p

The only "fix" I have found that is fairly reliable with my '06 FS is this, and remember, this is on MY FS, so if it doesn't work on YOUR FS, don't blame me, thanks :) Depending on how cold it is, because my car behaves differently the colder it gets. At between 50 degrees or above, little to no pro...

Re: 2007 Freestyle CVT cold start issue p0701,p0868,p0871,p0961

I had some cold start transmission light and same codes. Weather warmed up and no more codes or lights. I replaced the high pressure filter and drained the pan. I did not replace pan filter. The service was due, 60,000 since last. Fluid was a brownish color and no burnt odor. Looked pretty good. The...

I come back today, to announce my win over this haunted devil on my 2005 Freestyle. I am lazy and along the journey it takes 4 years to get it right, by myself, finally. The cure, is so simple. Replace the d*** high pressure filter. This morning at 35F as shown on the display I drive the car out wit...

Re: 2006 Freestyle Transmission issue P0961, P0871, P0701, P0811, and P0868p

I know this is an old post but I've been reading up on this because I'm having all of the same issues... Did anyone come up with an actual fix?
PS... It has nothing to do with cold weather because I'm in south Louisiana lows never get any lower than 60° ... (we have no clue of what cold weather is)
