    It makes one wonder if schedule 2 should be followed for anything? In all honesty, I would expect a neglected CVT to crap out. Most neglected automatic transmissions crap out shortly after the fluid has been changed. I know that has been true of automatic transmissions to some extent, & it may apply to CVTs, too?

    Having your CVT replaced with a low mileage used one for $1,800 isn't all that bad. As long as your engine is running good, I feel it's worth having done. $1,800 is nothing compared to starting up new car payments again. Plus, you aren't going to get much for your Mirage (trade or selling yourself) in its present condition.

    Costs are associated with owning mechanical things. It's part of life! Unless you want to walk everywhere, it's unavoidable. If the price is right, I can see doing what Loren suggests, too! If you like your Mirage, replacing the engine & CVT with a low mileage one should insure an extended life of your Mirage.

    I must admit that I do like the simplicity of the manual transmission (no filters, drain oil, & refill to the fill hole), but not everyone like driving a manual & I get that.
    I flipped through the service schedule for the wife’s sorento today. Regular schedule says there is no need to ever check the fluid level or replace the transmission fluid. The Severe schedule says to replace it at 96,000km/60,000miles ish... and there’s no friggin dipstick anyways. According to the book, if you live in Canada you basically have to follow the severe schedule.

I guess these shop owners are starting to catch on it's in their best interest to get specialists that can rebuild cvts in their shops. Makes sense considering all the Japanese manufacturers are switching over to them besides Mazda. Although the rumor mill is Nissan is going to go back to traditional automatics, at least for their Frontera/Pathfinders.
    One of my son's roommates is a mechanic and specifically works on transmissions at his shop. I sent the code it was throwing to him and he said "Jatco cvt's are non-repairable units" and he hadn't heard of any shops willing to attempt it. I did find a website directed to shops on how to repair them, and that it was in their best interest, as parts are more available now, so cheaper. Maybe Aamco saw the same website! Lol

    I had luck tearing changing the valve body on the 15 that acted similar last year. Driver said it would t move sometimes and the indicator would flash. I couldn’t make it act up. Almost didn’t believe the guy. I can’t recall the code it had. It’s posted around here somewhere. I removed the valve body from a cvt I had on the bench with a junk input bearing. Pulled the valve body apart first and cleaned out all the bearing material first. Slapped it back together and had to drive for quite a while til it’s shift and act properly. I haven’t heard any complaints since.
    I don’t think I’d try to rebuild one myself. They seem pretty finicky. But there isn’t much to them when you have them apart.

    Your going to do this yourself? You got alot of experience doing this? I'd be careful brother $1800 is a good price for everything included and another 140k miles. Did the shop offer a warranty? If they did that's a piece of mind. I definitely recommend doing the cvt servicing at 30 to 40k mile intervals this second time around. Good luck though, that would rock if you can pull it off on your own. CVT brotherhood forever!!!

    Not sure if this has been mentioned, but here's our thread for the Jatco CVT7. Be sure to look for repair info.

    Information about the Mirage CVT (Jatco CVT7 JF015E) operation, video, diagrams

    They’re pretty straight forward to replace. Just like an automatic. And just like an automatic, make sure the torque convertor is Seated properly. I had to break the news to my brother in law that him and his buddy’s broke the pump on his transmission they tried to replace themselves lol.

    I was telling my dad what I was doing, and he said I had more guts than him. I said sometimes there's a fine line between guts and stupidity...... guess we will see which it is. lol

    Picking up new (used) cvt tomorrow after work. Old one is pretty much ready to drop out. Will probably do the swap Friday or Saturday.
