Cvt maintenance

3 posts in this topic

Is there any required cvt maintenance for a 17 spark? Does the belt need to be replaced at all?

CVT belts are metal and are not a maintenance item . You need periodic fluid changes with the specific fluid . Use only OEM fluid as it’s crucial to a CVT’s longevity.

Sparkfanatic has an excellent suggestion about fluid maintenance in CVT. Get it done at dealer even if it costs more than other places.

 

CVT is an excellent tranny because it is ultra smooth, and improves gas mileage over standard geared automatic. However......CVT is a delicate piece of machine. Avoid excessive flooring of gas pedal, treat it with a gentle foot and it will last. My golf cart had a CVT and I used it for 10 years on a private golf course, playing 4 rounds average per week of 18 holes. The transmission never quit. And my handicap got down to 12! :happy feet:
