Hi, I have a 2003 saturn vue with 58000 miles on it. It is a 2.2l cvt awd. The transmission won't allow the vehicle to increase speed past about 30 mph. there is no dtc & no check engine light.
I found the link on the web and decided to follow it.
It seems I had some pressure leaks so I decided to pull the trans and put in a rebuild kit.
I pulled the trans and did an inspection. I put in a Master Kit w/Bonded pistions in. This is a link to the site for the parts that I replaced.
# 33006J Master kit, SATURN VT20/25 2002-05 with bonded pistons
Includes: overhaul kit, friction clutch plates & standard steel plates and bonded clutch pistons.
Note: This contains piston for the Forward & Reverse Clutch only.
This Transmission contain 1 - sided frictions / steels The chain looked good. I did not see any obvious damage. The belt also looked good. I also replaced the speed sensors while I had the valve body out.
I put the trans back in with new cvt fluid & additive. Went on a test drive and it still is doing the same thing.
It seems like the pulleys aren't changing ratio. The rpms just keep increasing. No dtc or check engine ligts but I didn't drive it that far, just down the road and back.
Was wondering if anyone had any suggestons or advise on what I should try or check next. I'm leaning towards the valve body or the variator pulleys and maybe a new belt too. It appears my pump is good. I've had good solid high pressures when I check them following the info I found on the avtoakpp-cvt website.
Thank you for your time.
ps I plan on donating at my next response. Thank you for your time, your knowledge is greatly appreciated.
