Advice 1: How to change the oil in the CVT

Before car owners, equipped with an automatic transmission, often raises the issue of changing the oil in the variator. According to most experts specialized care centers "Amateur" in this case is fraught with very serious consequences. But experience shows that these are empty words, designed for customer retention, and no more.
How to change the oil in the CVT
You will need
  • key for tube of the crankcase of the variator,
  • - oil – 7 l
Instruction
1
In accordance with the regulation maintenance of vehicles equipped with a CVT, replacing in it the grease is run after every 70 thousand miles. But it is subject to exploitation by foreign roads. In hard riding conditions on the Russian expanses, this option is desirable to reduce to 40-50 thousand km.
2
Despite the fact that the CVT is essentially an automatic transmission, replace the grease in the crankcase it is not more complex than the same procedure with a manual gearbox, but the automatic transmission, which is almost impossible to completely drain the fluid at home. That has generated a lot of rumors, misleading the owners of such vehicles about the complexity of the illuminated process.
3
Replace the lubricant in the variator is made after the car ride, when the temperature of the liquid in the machine corresponds to the working mode. To this end, the vehicle is installed on the inspection pit, ramp or hoist. Then render the capacity to drain the oil.
4
Next, from the bottom of the machine on the pallet rotor, Unscrew the drain plug, through which any suitable container is going tucked in a fluid, in quantity about seven liters.
5
Emptying the crankcase of the variator completely, the tube on his pallet and twisted through the hole, measuring probe to the machine is at the lower mark (Min) is filled with the new lubricant.
Note
According to the maintenance schedule changing the oil in the variator should be done every 4 years or 60,000 km (whichever comes first). The debate on the topic do I need a oil change after a period of use will never end to change or not – everyone decides for himself. The procedure for replacing oil in the gearbox is not complicated.
Useful advice
Although opinion about the unreliability and increased susceptibility to breakage of CVT (CVT) for the most part in modern times has become a relic of the past, the life of the CVT, however, like any other transmission, depends on the quality and frequency of its service. Timely replacement of oil in the variator (ATF) is the most important condition for its normal and uninterrupted operation.

Advice 2 : How to change the oil in the CVT

The widely held view that the replacement of the lubricant in the variator is a complex operation that can be trusted only to highly skilled brand autofocus, to put it mildly, not true. To drain the old and pour new oil into the automatic transmission is no more difficult than to do the same thing with our CAT "Lada".

Variable speed, despite the fact that the idea for their creation came to a head by Leonardo da Vinci in 1490, which is schematically depicted continuously variable transmission, and the first patent for invention issued by CVT in 1886, began to explore the automotive market relatively recently, and was a serious competitor auto boxes, everywhere displacing them.
2
Using the fact that this type of transmission is not well understood by domestic motorists, various rumors about the extraordinary complexity of such devices could quickly spread in certain circles. It is obvious that the decisive factor of misinformation was the economic dimension dealer business, whose members vied with each trying to convince the owners of vehicles with CVT in that maintenance and replacement of the lubricating fluid continuously variable unit can be carried out only under certain conditions and forces of artists, specially prepared for such work.
3
Let take the liberty to disagree with such sayings. Because the CVT is no such piling up of the gears as in a manual gearbox or "automatic". It includes a set of pulleys that are managed electronically, creating a plurality of gear ratios, allowing you to run the motor with maximum efficiency.
4
The replacement of the lubricating liquid is produced after driving the car every 45-50 thousand miles. To drain old grease from below on the sump variator, Unscrew the tube and the liquid is removed in a pre-prepared container. Filling the CVT through the hole for the dipstick. That's wisdom.
