    P0876 (Transmission Fluid Pressure Sensor)

    I had a car come in with a P0876 Transmission Fluid Pressure Sensor / Switch D Circuit Range Performance code stored. The driver said the shift indicator flashed when the light came on as well. I see there was a member who had this happen to them and the dealers fix was to replace the transmission and computer. I changed the fluid(21/2 liters of it) cleared the light and I'm hoping it doesn't come back. I'll post any updates if it happens again. The car has 197k kms so no warranty for this one.

    Well...when the retail on a CVT is $4,000+, I'd say a fluid change and crossed fingers are the way to go. I've fixed more than one transmission that way. Keep us posted.

    Wow, that's more than the car is worth. I have 2 spare low mileage cvt's on the shelf if I need to swap it. Hopefully this one will last a bit longer.

    I've always said if I won the lottery, I'd quit my job, buy low mileage late-model wrecked cars, and disassemble them for parts to sell on eBay/Craigslist/etc. I'd make money, but wouldn't have to worry about making enough to live, and fulfill my need to "work on cars" without having to make sure they still work when I'm done.

    There is definitely money to be made. The wrecker I worked for was doing $100k in sales(including doing installs) each month when it was really busy. Pretty good profit to be had, if you have low overhead.

    No problems yet 2000km later. But I had to go tow a the highest km(300k kms) car back late yesterday with cvt problems. It seems to have gone into limp mode. I haven't had a chance to look at it yet but might start a new thread for it later today. If the cvt needs to be replaced I'll be pulling apart the old one apart.
