    Default Toyota vitz gearbox

    Salam
    My vitz's has lost its speed, whenever i put it to full throtle, the engine makes more sound but the power isnt being transferred to the tires, my mechanic says that gear box is shot and that i need to replace it,he said something about sliping clutches
    Please suggest what to do, and how much would the new gear box cost?

    07 is cvt, and what you describe is normal as it cannot shift, if you boot the pedal to the floor the engine rpm will stay 200 rpm below redline and the transmission will pull the car at its maximum capacity.

    Word of advice - replace your mechanic

    What are the common symptoms of a Toyota CVT failing? and also as compared to normal AT's you mentioned these CVT boxes run very hot. So, is there any sort of care one should take while driving a CVT tranny car as compared to normal AT?

    Dont overwork the gearbox - meaning drive it gently

    If you feel shudder - your torque convertor lock up is about to go on permanent vacation ($$$)

    Rough shuttling (noise) is preparing for disaster

    It would be nice to install an additional cooler but you cannot in a toyota as coolant goes to the gearbox rather than CVTF going to the radiator.
