    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?"

Only use CVT fluid. Regular ATF is not correct and will damage the trans . These trans have enough problems using the correct fluid.

check oil level in the transmission
run the fault codes as it could be a problem sensor
make sure that only CVT transmission oil is used as ATF oil destroys CV transmissions

What type of transmission fluid is for lancer 96 1.3cc automatic transmission ?


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.

WHAT IS THE TRANSMISSION FLUID FOR CVT 2.2 L FWD


it's very special, and if done wrong, dooms the trans-axle

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.

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.

Looking to buy an 09 lancer. A little leary about the CVT tranny. I have 25 years Ford and GM experience but not much about CVTs. Would appreciate any input


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!
