Did this video help you?

Funky Fred: so you all know I did the research. the cvt tranny overheats thats why it whines. it can cost lest than 3k to fix. way to much if you ask me. on top of that if you drive in the triple digits your car goes into limp mode (safe mode). so it feels like you cant floor the gas. my sentra did that and was only able to go 70 mph on the high way. Im going to try and change some of the components myself to fix the heating issue. I told the techs over at nissan about that. Twice. then after a few days they told me the exact same thing i told them. Hello i said i know the problem i just want to know the price to fix it. well yeah he said its not that bad its only 2753.05 out the door. I said cool My kids dont need to eat. yeah sure. anyways im picking it back up within 30 min. bastards.

Spooky Zooki: so if I change the fluid it will destroy it?

Mr. pewterschmidt: owners manual states to not push the cvts beyond 3 to 4k rpms

Kirk Marthens: I own a 2007 Versa it has 190,000 miles on the original CVT and I have had no problems. I did change fluid at 100,000 miles.

Victor Ruiz: I have the same 2012 vehicle and it is making exactly the same noise. I was told that it needed a transmission oil cooler and that it is not covered by powertrain warranty because it is attached to the transmission but not actually part of it. I also do not think this car comes with a transmission oil cooler which makes this a factory fault

Dwayne Stevens: that's the same whining sound im getting for almost 3 months now know its coming from the cvt but cant tell why its like this whenever I do like 40+ miles driving at 80mph it starts to whine what do you guys think

liam cox: same thing happens to my 2008 sentra

Travis Olander: Hi folks, Jeep Patriot owner here. Chrysler uses Jatco CVT transmission (well, USED, because they stopped because they're junk) in the Patriot, Compass, and Dodge Calibers. Same transmission in this video.

Mine makes the same exact noise. This is from the transmission's oil heating up beyond its proper temperature. These CVTs are ridiculously sensitive to heat. A solution? #1. Get yours fixed under warranty. This problem might (probably will) come back, though. #2. Get an aftermarket transmission cooler installed by a reputable shop that knows how to ensure the proper oil level is maintained by adding an appropriate amount and measuring, taking into account the new lines and cooler. #3. Sell your CVT-afflicted vehicle.

I'm going with option 2, hoping it helps. Option 3 is out of the question... unfortunately I bought this thing when I was stuck between a rock and a hard place, ironically because the vehicle I just purchased prior to it had a transmission failure three days after buying it. The dealership wasn't gonna foot the bill, so they sold me the Patriot at cost.

Life is a bitch.

Richard Rico: Hearing the same thing on the used 2012 SR we just bought. At used dealership now for them to look over but I'll take to nissan since it should fall under powertrain warranty.

RENA B: My 2012 sentra just started with this same problem. 98k miles. Dealership is saying not under warranty.

Justin: What causes this noise?

Nevergiveup: The dealer just replaced my transmission at 80,000 miles

Nevergiveup: Fyi... Nissan has extended the warranty for this issue.. its 120k or 10yrs which ever come first...

Erik Krueger: Thank you for posting this. Ive got a 2009 Nissan Sentra FE+ and it's making exactly the same noise. I was puzzled for weeks.

For certain models, Nissan doubled the powertrain warranty. I plan to have the dealer swap out my noisy CVT near the 120,000 mark.

Marshall Street: My Bugatti Veyron has a CVT and I never had any problems.

Jeff Coursen: '08 Sentra SE-R.  CVT replaced at 60k mi for the whine.  The replacement is now whining after less than 20k mi when warm or on grades.  The dealer is consulting Nissan on what to do.

Gator Bait: The CVT whining noise is common among all CVT's mine started doing that brand new on the highway and I have over 100k on it and it is still going strong. No need to be paranoid unless the car is not moving at all and or is jerking it is just normal for these type of transmissions. 

shavencarrot: Much the same problem as I have. I have a 2013 Suzuki Swift Sport. Car has 10000km on it.

Elvis E Jusino: I have a 2007 Nissan Sentra is making that same noise after they change the transmission going up the hill and the highway and just make that same noise

ozzieksk: I can not believe this. I have the same car 2012 and it is making same noise. I know the tranny is under warranty but seriously? on 37K? Is this a joke?
