At Rowell & Searle Auto, we specialise in transmissions including Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) service and repairs. If you drive a vehicle with a CVT transmission, then you need an automotive service center with experience, the latest diagnostic equipment and a reputation for quality.
Rowell & Searle Auto provide CVT servicing, minor in-house repairs, major overhauls and replacement units if required. We can repair your CVT transmission in-house to provide a more cost effective option than replacement.
What is a CVT?
Some vehicles have a CVT or single speed transmission. This is a type of automatic transmission that adjusts between low gear and high gear while your drive. Many small car manufacturers like Nissan, Subaru and Toyota use CVTs which have a reputation for good fuel economy and smooth acceleration. Find out more about your CVT Transmission operation here.
Do I Have a CVT Problem?
Common CVT Transmission Problems
We see many transmissions issues per week. Common CVT problems involve:
- Low Transmission Fluid
- Lack of Transmission Servicing
- Damaged or Failed Bearing(s)
- Overheating Transmission (particularly from towing)
- Insufficient Cooling for Australian Climates
- Constant Whining or Grinding Sound
- Warning Light On Dash
CVT technology is newer and becoming more standard in small vehicles. Not every automotive service center is equipped to restore CVT performance. At Rowell & Searle Auto, we have specialist technicians on staff who understand the faults and requirements of your single speed transmission.
