Subaru CVT Transmission Maintenance Tips Information in Columbus, OH
Subaru CVT Transmission Maintenance Tips from the Service Team at Byers Airport Subaru
The latest Subaru vehicles come with the advanced, efficient CVT transmission — and, just like any automatic transmission, it’ll need some occasional maintenance from a trained mechanic. But a CVT is a bit different from an ordinary automatic gearbox, which means its maintenance needs are different, too. We’ll tell you what you need to know! The experts at the Byers Airport Subaru service center want to give you the knowledge you need to keep your car running great for thousands and thousands of miles to come.
What Services Does my Subaru Transmission Need?
Just like a traditional automatic gearbox, the CVT gearbox will need a transmission flush occasionally. If the fluid isn’t changed inside the transmission eventually, it can break down too far to lubricate the metal gears as they mesh together, and allow the transmission to sustain serious damage. Beyond that, the CVT belt might need to be replaced if it becomes stretched over time. The best way to maintain your Subaru CVT is to have it inspected periodically by a dealership professional.
How Often do I Need to Change the Transmission Fluid on my Subaru?
The only regularly scheduled maintenance a Subaru CVT transmission requires routinely is an inspection of the fluid. For example, the 2018 Subaru Outback should have its CVT fluid inspected by a dealership pro every 30,000 miles, according to the owner’s manual. Eventually, the CVT fluid will need to be flushed and replaced — but it can last up to 100,000 miles or more in some cases before it goes bad. Since there’s no dipstick to allow you to easily check the color and quality of the CVT oll yourself, this is a procedure that should be carried out on your local Subaru dealership service center.
