  1. CVT Fluid Change

    Hey there folks, I’m just about due for my CVT Fluid change. My question is whether it’s necessary to also change out the transmission filter...? Given that I have a 1.5L engine, does that filter for the specific transmission NEED to be changed or can you get by with a simple drain and fill...

  5. Si Transmission chatter after clutch install

  6. Help! Shifter Problems

    If i could post a video to help illustrate the problem my Si is having, i would. I posted awhile ago on purchasing a 2018 Si. However, it's become evident that the previous owner used this car for racing and turned it back in to the dealership. The shifter has become loose and my shifts into...

  8. 2016 Civic EX-T w/ CVT No power to engine. Transmission?

    My 2016 EX-T CVT is my workhorse. I have to drive 30 miles back and forth to work everyday, so I have over 100k miles on it. Monday night driving home it started to have a weird feel. It began to fluctuate rpm and feel like it was having trouble maintaining speed. A few moments later it threw up...

  10. CVT Transmission Fluid Change

    Hello, I plan to do a transmission fluid change from Honda HCF-2 fluid to Amsoil CVT fluid in the next cycle. What is the best way to get as much HCF2 out before filling it with Amsoil? On Amsoil's website, they do not recommend using the flush for CVTs so I won't be doing that. In total, how...
  11. CVT failure: Details inside

    Just thought I'd share my experience with my recent CVT failure, what (probably) caused it, and how it was resolved thankfully under warranty. See TL;DR on the bottom if you don't want all the details (though the details shine a lot of light on what happened). Feel free to AMA if it's not...

    I recently got the first action clutch stage 3 with the light weight flywheel installed by DTtuned in Ontario, ca. the stock clutch kept slipping with the bolt ons but so far ive done a few pulls and it is a huge difference, I was debating with clutch master fx400 and the stage 3 action but I’ve...
  13. Transmission is slipping. Help.

    Hi, so I have a 2016 2dr ex-t with a cvt transmission and about 30k miles on it and plenty of mods such as, downpipe, cat back exhaust, cold air intake, cvt transmission mount and a nice 21 psi tune with some other mods as well. For a couple of times when I would start it I heard a grinding...
  14. Brake Fluid and CVT Fluid Change after 100k Miles?

    My 2016 Civic EX (57k miles) popped up with MM codes 3 and 7 during my last oil change. So as I was shopping around for prices on the brake and cvt fluid changes, one of the shops said I didn't have to do either until 100k miles. They said if I still wanted to get both fluids changed, they'd...
  15. How to change Transmission Oil on 1.5T CVT

    Honda CVTs are relatively trouble-free, but ONLY when you keep the oil changed. I found lots of good info scattered all over these forums, so I’m just going to compile it here. Tools & parts: Ramps, jack stands, floor jack, Phillips head screw driver, stubby slotted screw driver, oil pan, 3/8...
  16. Changing transmission...?

    I know this sounds very far fetched but it is just food for thought, is it possible to change a CVT transmission to a manual or vice versa, or is it better off trading in your car? Yea yea I know it sounds like a bad idea BUT I think its possible no?
  17. 2500 RPM Transmission Noise

    Hey everyone, I have been hearing this whiring noise in my 2017 hatch sport with a six speed transmission. I hear it the loudest in first gear (little to no road noise) but I know it is present in higher gears. It only happens between 2500 and 2800 rpms when I am holding the throttle steady. I...
  18. Turbo for dummies?

    New 2018 Civic Touring (sedan) owner here. Never owned a CVT, nor a turbo. I'm not really an auto enthusiast (I know... "hiss-boo! burn the witch!"). Can anyone direct me to a relatively easy to understand description of how the CVT and the turbo work -- and if there are any unique aspects...
  19. Only 20,000 miles...

    I just hit 20,000 miles and i noticed a small puddle of oil in my driveway. I brought my car to the dealer Saturday and they say its coming from what they believe to be the transmission. They put dye in it and I just brought it back today for further diag. Has anyone else had any leaks or issues...
