Make sure that the transmission is properly full and add a good transmission treatment fluid like Lucas. Someone at autozone or an auto parts store should be able to steer you in the right direction.

I have a 2004 R2 - CVT fluid is to be changed every 40,000km. I've changed mine once already. Taking the drain plug out of the transmission pan drains 2-3L. New fluid is added to the CVT 'dipstick' tube, which is just behind the radiator with a black plastic head on the dipstick. A local CVT specialist sold me type NS-2 fluid, which has been working well for 12,000km. I also changed the filter on top of the transmission with a WIX 51365 which my autoparts shop found using the OEM filter part number. Hope this helps!

Last night i was driving my car and the AWD maulfuntion came on. I dont know what this means besides the obvious.

This seems to be an electrical issue with that make and model , Ford hasn't come out and said it yet , But My Brother in law is a ford mechanic and he told me that they have many 500's coming in with this same issue , The dealer can test the DEM, ( differential electronic module) it will probably throw a code of p1889, which you should ignore they will say its a oil pump pressure problem and that won't fix your problem , what your going to hear over time is that the CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) is to blame, but as I said, and whats being reported to me in the news and by fellow car buddies, is that its an electrical issue that Ford has yet to admit to,, so good Luck , Maybe your dealer is better knowledge'd than mine here, I sure hope so, there are many forums concerning this issue, and you can find lots of them on line, just google awd malfunction and check some of them out

Would like to service my 2006 ford Five Hundred transmission. I am told that it takes a very special and expensive fluid. Is the job strait forward other than that?

I own a "06" 500 with 150,000 miles on it. My Ford dealer recommended transmission service at around 90,000 miles. I don't recall the exact cost but it didn't seem unreasonable, around $140.00. No special pump out or filtration, just drain and refill.

CVT transmission fluid mini cooper 04 automatic

The manual has a mis print, according to MINI the correct oil to use is ESSO CVT Z2L 799 fluid and there are no other manufacturers that use it so sorry but you will have to buy it from the main dealer.

A4, 3.0 with CVT

When you say "no throttle response," do you mean that the engine reacted to the throttle but the car wouldn't move?  If so, this is a fairly common issue with CVT cars....CVT is not quite ready for the road yet.
