    Default Corolla Axio X 2007 CVT Issue

    AOA Gentlemen,

    I bought a Corolla Axio X 2007 from Pakwheels couple of days ago, the body condition is good and ODO reads 61,000km, it?s 2013 import and registered only 3 months ago.

    But it has one major problem, my understanding is that CVT is supposed to be smooth unlike conventional auto tranny but this car when shifting from 1st gear to 2nd gear generates a grrr grrr noise for a second or so, engine also vibrates and engine feels like losing power. On slow and gentle acceleration its more noticeable and strong but if accelerated hard the noice and vibration is is bearly noticeable. After this there is no noise or any vibration and I?ve tested it upto 160kms and it runs smoothly.

    I?ve got it checked and my mechanic says that the back mounting of engine is broken, and he suggests that we should clean the CVT oil filter and try changing the CVT oil to resolve the problem. I?ll definitely get the engine back mounting fixed along with cleaning of CVT oil filter but question is whether this will fix the problem.

    I also got the car checked in Lahore by Adnan motor?s main person on Multan road (apparently he is the best tranny specialist in Lahore and costly too) and he is picturing a troubling picture. Scenario 1 , if forward clutch is weak or gone then it will cost 45k to fix it, Scenario 2, CVT is gone then it will cost between 95 to 125k in Lahore and total expense will be around 140k. Now that?s awful lot of money.

    Could the experts here suggest any other good/reliable tranny specialists who I can consult ( in some other thread a guy in Model town was quoted but his where about are unknown). Also if someone has had the similar CVT issue please do share also with the solution.

    I highly appreciate suggestions.

    Muzzammil

    if the oil additives are worn out the transmission may feel like its having stick-slip problems. immediate change is required. you also report of noise. that is major bad news in any transmission whether cvt or not.

    also test for water contamination of the cvt fluid
    Hi
    I have a city 2004 vario cvt in hand nowadays for daily use. Its driven on petrol from day 1 and has no problems in transmission. I was thinking of getting the cvt oil changed. What do u recommend . Shall i get the chamber down and get it cleaned or just replace the cvt oil in it. You have also mentioned that genuine cvt oil of honda is not upto mark in lubrication. Shall i put in the toyota cvt oil. I drive on m2 a lot at speeds between 120-135km/hr. Also is 4 ltr enough. What about the leftover oil in system. The pull of car is excellent and i do not feel.any slippage. Car has 150k on odo with regular service from honda. Though honda technical team is amateur so was thinking of getting the oil changed from another workshop.
    Regards

Mechanic did not recommend to change the fill oil in case we have to go for AVT gear assembly and it will waste all 7 litres )


    The issue with engine mounting is very minute and mechanic said no need to change the mounting as problem is very minute.


    Although today I noticed the noise and vibration slightly subdued even on low speed and felt little better, not sure whats happening. Can someone elaborate that since it's CVT then why it feels like car is switching gear and there is a slip/noise/vibration when moving from 20km-35kms and this does not happen on initial pikcup or on speed above 40kms. @Xulfiqar please share your thoughts.


    Now I am trying to find out a CVT assembly in local market and people are telling me very high prices ( 90-125k) and someone told me to find out if CVT assembly can be imported from Dubai car junk yards. Can someone comment on this or guide maybe. Really appreciate your help.

    I have got the sam issue with my Axio. The vibration sound comes till the speed is below or at 40 km/h.I dunno whether its a CVT-i issue or something else.
