    General Banter

    Do we actually need a General Banter thread? After the original thread magically disappeared about 12 months ago it doesn't appear that important. Anyway, if you've got something to say about general stuff, chuck it in here. Take 2.

    Anybody here know a thing or two about CVTs, or know someone who does? I've got an X Trail that has very little drive after a CVT oil change with correct spec oil. Help!

    I have seen info that the Xs CVT do fail often. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j60a8pZjc-s this guy waffles on a bit

    Was the correct fluid used? These things are really sensitive to the wrong type. Has it got a dipstick to check the level?

    Was it flushed or just a fluid and filter change out.

    Well let me tell you about a major brain fart I had the other day. I'm pretty embarrassed by it but it is what it is. I was only going to do an engine oil and filter change. Drained the sump and the expected quantity of oil came out into the pan. I did think the sump and sump plug looked a bit odd, but my mind was in automatic mode and I just carried on. Put the sump plug back in. Oil from drum tap into top of engine (hard to tell how much is flowing in). Checked oil level and realised I'd put a bit too much in. Oh well not too worried about that. Next day get in car to do some shopping and engine warning light comes on and vehicle is in limp mode with no power. Managed to reverse back up the driveway (just). Only then did I realise what I'd done. This vehicle has an east/west engine and the tranny sump is front and centre. The engine sump is over on driver's side, plug facing back. I had drained the tranny sump, not the engine sump. So I drained the tranny sump again to get as much old oil out, then refilled the tranny with Penrite CVT oil NS-2 rated per the Haynes manual. Put 4 litres in then started it up and selected through the gears. Tranny howled like a dog with a broken tail, so turned it off and got another 2 litres into it before it hit the low mark on the tranny dipstick. Car moves but there is so much slip it's undrivable. I'm hoping I haven't terminally damaged it.

    Ouch! Maybe check the level again. I hope its only an air bubble or air lock, but hydraulic pumps really hate dry running.

    Yeah I've driven forwards and backwards 10m a dozen times so I don't think its an air lock. Disconnected the battery overnight to reset the ecu. Didn't make a difference. Oil level is at cold low notch so will take it up to cold high notch and see if that makes any difference.
