Hie Everyone. Not sure if I'm being paranoid, but can anyone have a look /listen to the following vids and let me know if this happens with their cvt? Its from a 2005 Nissan Tiida with 74000km

Better test is what you experience when you drive the car. Any rpm where it's rough or vibrates? Does it seem to slip when you accelerate or when you are driving at a steady rate of speed? Yours should be prior to the "fake" shift points so is it smooth all the way up as the rpms increase?

You mean the jack hammer sound? Sounds like its from the cvt side of the engine bay. Thats what a bad ac compressor sounds like or similar to a piston pin knock. Does the cvt have any fluid in it?

Hi Cobb, thanks for replying. It has fluid in it, and is otherwise operating normally. It is coming from the cvt definitely, as i ran that test with the wheels off the ground to verify what i was suspecting. Here is what it sounds like with the wheels on the ground

Hi Alan_nc, thanks for replying. The car drives fine, acceleration is smooth throughout the rev range, even when i put it in sport mode and punch it, no jerkiness, no roughness nothing. Its all normal, this is why i thought to ask other owners of their experiences, as it may be a precursor to issues

Thanks

If the car drives fine, I would not be too concerned about the transmission. I have a 2012 Versa sedan, and when my cvt transmission went out, my check engine light went on, and when the car was at a full stop, the car would lurch forward for a split second and made a thud sound like you get when you release your emergency brake. My car was still under warranty, and Nissan changed out the entire transmission rather than make the repair on the one that was in the car.

Hi Pimperell

Thanks for your reply. That puts my mind somewhat at east. Just to prepare for armageddon, I went and (price) shopped around from importers for a replacement tranny - $800usd, then and additional 150 to install it. Seems reasonable, but I'm now contemplating selling the car off before anything major happens. Do you guys believe I need to change the tranny fluid? It's only got about 74000km on the clock - or it's too soon for that?

Thanks

I had a honda with a cvt. I had issues with jerkiness from a dead stop, 35 mph and slipping or missing gears in sequential mode. Even had the check engine light come on, but only service was fluid, internal filter changed and external filter to the cooler replaced several times. I use to race mustangs and other vehicles and even do burn outs. Then 104 thousand miles I had misfires and the intake full of oil from piston ring problems.

Never did it make any noise to my knowledge.

That's the reason I thought to ask fellow members. I've owned the car almost a year now and don't quite remember those sounds. And when you read all the horror stories around cvts you can't help but panic and start looking for answers before surprises pop up.

I'm going to try and not worry so much and just enjoy the car as long as it runs

Hi all. Could I bother anyone reading this thread of what their dipstick looks like, at cold, and at operating temperature? Does anyone's dipstick ever reach the HOT marker after even a long drive, or it's always in that checkered ares?
