SOURCE: How to fix CVT Warning Light?

the CVT light is associated with the transmission. I don't think changing the fluid/oil in the transmission will help. you need to find a shop that can access the transmission control module to fint out ant fault codes and go from there. could be a simple speed sensor or shift control solenoid.

SOURCE: Are transmission problems common on 2014 turbo diesel territory?

They certainly do have a reputation for transmission problems where I am, in Australia.

2015 subaru forester with cvt tranny as good as 2013 with a 4 speed automatic tranny? can the cvt go 200,000 miles

The problem with answering that question is that not enough CVT's have been on the road long enough to really do a good analysis of their longevity. I know that if taken care of, a conventional automatic transmission can go the distance. My mothers car was a 2004 Nissan CVT which has almost 200K and hasn't faltered one bit. You have to think about which one would be more expensive to repair/replace out of pocket. Which one is cheaper to service/maintain, I do know that CVT fluid is more expensive than conventional auto trans fluid. I personally like feeling the car shift, and the conventional would be my choice at that point based on aesthetics. I hope this info helps!

Cvt light on indicating over heating. Stops car lets it cool down and then completes his trip. Dealer could not identify problem or diagnose the problem.

I do not know why your local Mitsubishi dealer cannot figure this one out. What you are describing is a known problem for which Mitsubishi has published a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB).

The problem is caused by incorrect transmission fluid levels and there is an updated dipstick included in the fix.

You may also want to talk to your son about heeding warnings from your vehicle's onboard computer system. When the CVT transmission begins to overheat, the CVT light will come on, a warning chime will sound, and the words "SLOW DOWN" will be displayed in the Muti-informational Display. This will occur LONG before the vehicle goes into "REDUCED POWER" mode. If he would slow down as he is being told to, the warnings will extinguish themselves as soon as the transmission fluid temperature drops to a safe level (which it will, if he slows down).

REDUCED POWER MODE is like an angry parent...."OK, you don't want to slow down like I told you to do, and you are going to destroy my transmission by ignoring my warnings, so I am shutting you down!!! You won't slow down, so I am slowing you down! Now, if you do not want this to continue, then you better start listening to me!"

Similar things will happen if you choose to ignore engine control or Brake/Traction Control warnings. The old days of ignoring warning lamps and running around with your dash lit up like a Christmas tree are over. There is a new sheriff in town called REDUCED POWER MODE.

I have Nissan P12. The CVT started giving problem and finally the technician replaced with another CVT removed from used vehicle. All were okay for few days. I now see lack of power especially accelarate...

Other than taking it back to your mechanic no. You can try google searching it and reading and watch some videos on the problem with the fix for it.

Hi ;) i have a 2005 subaru forrester 2.5 xs... Can you tell me what "fram" oil filter I should buy for replacement? and also I'm at 75000 miles now and the original oil I've been getting is 5-30...

No ... once you start the synthetic you should stay with it ... continue to use the recommended weight. 75000 is really no miles ... This engine should go for 175 to 200,000 properly cared for.

Your auto parts store that sells Fram can give you the proper filter.
