please help me my trans is getting so hot and i dont know what to do?
Testimonial: "thanks ted for your opinion , you made me sure of my first thought that i have to use the CVTF-J1 oil but unfortunately the dealer of Mitsubishi here only uses the ATF SPIII as standard for all Mitsubishi lancers automatic transmission even when i insisted the CVT is a very different tech and so it need a special oil and that mentioned every where on the internet they said: air, we only provide the genuine stuff if you want to try the other market's cheap stuff it's on your risk.
and you cn imagine how furry i became, and left the place with no hope to get the CVT oil here in egypt :(
any Ideas? is the ATF SP III can be used and even i ll change it every 20000
can this save my gear?"

You have a few options but there are some that will convert Regular ATF if you add the "FRICTION MODIFIER". The IMPORT Fluid will say it on the Bottle, If your Transmission is a CVT Transmission (you have the smaller engine), then you need to get to the dealer. But normally the Import will say the Proper Fluid on the Bottle.
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.
VT25e (cvt made in Hungary)
GM RPM code M75(2WD)/M16(F4WD)
DEX-CVT and Automatic Transmission Additive
there are 10 service bulletins on this trans-axle
TSBs (read them all)
see the special additive yet>?
Use DEX CVT fluid (P/N 22688912) only. Use of
any fluid other than DEX CVT will
cause internal trans=axle damage.
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.
here is the actual instructions for replacing VT25e filter and fluid (special)
Transmission can malfunction due to the following reasons:
- Before blaming the transmission, engine tune up be carried out to get the maximum performance and torque.
- Wrong type of transmission oil is used.
- Improper transmission fluid oil level.
- Contaminated transmission fluid.
- Transmission oil leakage.
- Throttle control cable adjustment. (Auto transmission)
- CVT oil calibration. (CVT).
- Clutch and pressure plate and clutch slippage. (Manual transmission).
- Drive shafts.
- Transmission damaged.
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.
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.
I was a little leary myself when i bought the my 08 lancer gts cvt. I have only owned it for three months and has a little over 51000 km on but havent had any problems with it. You will be very impressed with the smooth operation of the cvt, the sprotronic and paddle shifters are amazing and work beautifully. I would recommend it over a regular five speed or a rough changing auto tranny. Besides the fact you should have proper warm up for it to work in colder temps(which is good for all trannys anyways) and the special transmission fluid needed. Fewer components and operates much like a snomobile belt drive system which i thought might affect gas mileage but i got a suprising 42mpg at 100km/hr. Towing anything might be an issue with this transmission since its a belt drive system(small camper or travel trailer) but im not to certain about that.So far so good......i would get another one!
