The difference is that the standard auto transmission has a fixed number of gear ratios and is far more reliable than any CVT.

Avoid vehicles with CVTs fitted.

What type of atf fluid is required for Audi 3.0 A6 C7 multi CVT TDI?


cv transmission use a special transmission oil specifically designed for cv transmissions. any other type of atf oil will destroy the transmission quickly
contact your service dealer to get the correct oil or if you do not wish to pay audi price there will be other manufacturers that make the oil for audi, mitsubishi, honda etc all of whom use cv transmissions
there are to many people on forums who have used the wrong oil ( atf) in the cv transmissions only to have them fail completely inside 20000 klms

My 2007 voxy isn't picking quickly it can't accelerate beyond 60km per hour once forced to it stops the engine i changed the gear oil atf with Toyota 4 instead of cvt could it be the cause


Not really. But if you haven't put many miles on it. Replace the ATF fluid with CVT fluid. This will kill the transmission. If it hasn't already done damage. Have the codes read, even if the light is not on.

Atf ws or atf t4 which is better


cell phone , ?
join a real Toyota forum and get advice.?
there are no facts on what is better, on any oil.
there are no independent tests. (besides API ,etc)
google"bob the oil guy" and read a month and learn , there is no answers. for sure, religion on names, and opinions... none of which matter.
Why not ask Toyota, you do know that some opted transmissions need special ATF, right, ?
and can vary by country, you do know that USA cars run different lube than say EU? Europe?
this forum is www , the world wide web.
4speed auto
or CVT?


if not CVT
then T4?
so says this post (google works try it)

http://www.toyotalexusforum.com/toyota-camry-club/5595-toyota-type-t4-dexron-iii-transmission-fluid-issue.html

if CVT
ask Toyota personally, do not mix fluids or guess.

Can I change the filter and fluid in my 2006 ford 500 myself and what atf fluid should i use? Thanks


You have a CVT transmission. It is a specific CVT fluid that is green. You really shouldn't so it yourself, because the filt plug is under the battery and it is extremely small, too small for a standard funnel.
