SOURCE: CVT 2002 Mini Cooper transmission check and change

The only way to check the trans fluid is to drain the fluid right out of the trans pan. There should be 5 liters. The only way to get the fluid in is by pumping the fluid back in by means of the fill plug on the lower front of the transmission. I believe it is a 4 or a 6mm allen to remove the plug. Whatever you use to pump the fluid back in needs to seal where the fill plug is because fluid will pour right back out. I would change the fluid at least every 50k.

SOURCE: 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.

WHAT IS THE TRANSMISSION FLUID FOR CVT 2.2 L FWD


it's very special, and if done wrong, dooms the trans-axle
all this is covered, in the FSM
read it in the book and on most cars the CVT has very very
special needs and procedures for changing lube.
some, it must be done a s special temperature. < yes.

ever seen and FSM. (for doing factory service)
it shows all the steps, 1 by 1.
login to alldata.com
the lube is at GM. dealers.
03 VUE
VT25e (cvt made in Hungary)
GM RPM code M75(2WD)/M16(F4WD)
spec, fluid
DEX-CVT and Automatic Transmission Additive
8.53qt
there are 10 service bulletins on this trans-axle
TSBs (read them all)
see the special additive yet>?
quote.
Notice:
Use DEX CVT fluid (P/N 22688912) only. Use of
any fluid other than DEX CVT will
cause internal trans=axle damage.
Important:
Add one unit (10 CC syringe) of DEX CVT additive (P/N 22697447) whenever an unrecoverable loss of fluid occurs during an authorized limited on vehicle repair. Minor fluid
loss, such as minor drips that may occur during the fluid checking procedure, does not require the addition of the additive.

Cvt light on indicating over heating. Stops car lets it cool down and then completes his trip. Dealer could not identify problem or diagnose the problem.


I do not know why your local Mitsubishi dealer cannot figure this one out. What you are describing is a known problem for which Mitsubishi has published a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB).

The problem is caused by incorrect transmission fluid levels and there is an updated dipstick included in the fix.
MITSUBISHI TSB REFERENCE NUMBER: TSB-10-23-005

You may also want to talk to your son about heeding warnings from your vehicle's onboard computer system. When the CVT transmission begins to overheat, the CVT light will come on, a warning chime will sound, and the words "SLOW DOWN" will be displayed in the Muti-informational Display. This will occur LONG before the vehicle goes into "REDUCED POWER" mode. If he would slow down as he is being told to, the warnings will extinguish themselves as soon as the transmission fluid temperature drops to a safe level (which it will, if he slows down).

REDUCED POWER MODE is like an angry parent...."OK, you don't want to slow down like I told you to do, and you are going to destroy my transmission by ignoring my warnings, so I am shutting you down!!! You won't slow down, so I am slowing you down! Now, if you do not want this to continue, then you better start listening to me!"

Similar things will happen if you choose to ignore engine control or Brake/Traction Control warnings. The old days of ignoring warning lamps and running around with your dash lit up like a Christmas tree are over. There is a new sheriff in town called REDUCED POWER MODE.

What trasmition oil do this car use


Your transmission requires a special fluid. DIA QUEEN CVTF-J1
You can save yourself some time and go directly to the Mitsubishi dealer. You may hear alot of "recommended" replacements for the OEM fluid. With that CVT transmission, I recommend that you stay with OEM fluid.

Good Luck

I bought a used Honda Civic Hatchback 2001, code EU1-1020777. When purchased, I put 1 liter of transmission oil, but it was not CVT recommended oil. Several other people had major problems with...


please specify what your problem is.

your vehicle is not equipped with a cvt transmission, so does not require cvt fluid. adding cvt fluid would cause a catastrophic failure. please reply and explain what problem you are actually experiencing.
