After a faulty repair of a transmission leak, I had gray silicone mixed in the transmission line, which remained for about 10 miles of driving. Dealership supposedly repaired the leak, and changed the transmission fluid to find these bits of silicone in the existing fluid. After a fluid change I was still feeling a jerkiness when the CVT upshifted, so I took it back in to say there was a separate axle seal leak fixed under warranty that could have leaked the transmission fluid.
Moving forward, they are telling me if the jerkiness comes back, that I may need a new transmission as the silicone in the fluid could have caused lasting damage. After 10 minutes of driving the jerkiness came back.
The question I have is if they flushed the lines originally, shouldn't the silicone at least be out of the system? If so, is further damage still being done by driving the car?
have the same problem?
