I posted on here back in March, couldnÂ’t find the original thread so I started a new one.
Have a 2015 mirage with now 272k miles on the odometer. Engine has been flawless and doesnÂ’t leak or smoke, the cvt had been surging for around 90k miles but nevertheless kept up on fluid changes to ensure its longevity. At 271978 miles for the first time ever it broke down with a flashing D accompanied with a check engine light as I have been expecting for years, however with my handy dandy 10mm I was able to disconnect the negative battery terminal for a few minutes and it worked I made it home. Ended up purchasing a totaled 2019 back in march with only 23k good engine good trans, was originally going to swap the trans because I thought it was bad but after learning from Fummins that a lot of cvt issues can be solved by changing the valve body I decided to give it a go. Yesterday I finally had enough time to get to it after the pan gasket and filter arrived to my local dealer. Removed and replaced the valve body with the one from the 2019 it was really easy it took about a hour and a half start to finish, the results were amazing it drives like a new car again!!! ItÂ’s astonishing how reliable these cars really im extremely grateful for the advice I was given and I will continue to keep this car on the road as long as can with its original equipment.
