I just bought a 2005, V6. It has an unusual problem of not going smooth in the morning till it heats up or drive for about 5 min. Then it goes fast ard the rpm needle drops, till then it runs of 3..rpm.
CVT flush can be a remedy?
I feel the fluid is not being pumped as required
Any solved suggestions appreciated.
Doubt: What happens if we drain all the fluid completely from the hose or bottom of the radiator.
There is a drain plug in the CVT pan that may be easier to get to. I did a drain and refill from there and I believe I had to add back in about 6 to 7 quarts.
My trans goes into a hesitation mode when it's been in stop/go traffic for around half and hour with the ambient over 90 degrees. Funny, same traffic under 90 does not have the same hesitation issues. Mine will literally stay at rest with the go pedal to the floor for maybe 3 to 5 seconds and then off like a tiger. Then while even driving at highway speeds it surges a lot, can't keep a steady speed. I can let it set overnight and it's fine again. Sometimes when in stop/go traffic I can turn off the MO and restart it and it's fine for a couple more stops.
I've heard and read about many issues with the CVT needing replacements, but I've not yet found a definitive set of symptoms of failing CVT's. Maybe someone can attach a link to a previous thread or just post the major symptoms.
