Cvt Maintainence


Recommended Posts


Steve,

The fluid should be changed every so often. I don't have the information available right now, but I believe Lexus recommends every 60,000 miles. I would recommend every 30,000 miles. The fluid should come from Lexus or Toyota. I think the grade is ATF-WS or something like that, the WS standing for "World Standard"

Hi Steve. Remember the DIFFERENCE between keeping the warranty valid, versus Lexus recomendations. Often the two are worlds apart :P

That being said, nothing wrong with changing it at 60k, but the CVT AND its pricy fluid (I asked my service tech, even tho the manager refused to give me a streight answer :lol: ) IS designed to reach 100K !! I'm going the distance.

Very interesting.

I was surprised that I could not find a fluid level check like most automatics.

Thanks for the info. I'm still learning all about the technical aspect of this beast.
