I purchased a 2011 CR-Z with 98k miles on it back in April, and since then I have noticed a slight problem with my CVT. When I come to a complete stop, and then apply a light acceleration, I get a bucking or jerking feeling until I am at roughly 15-20 mph. I am assuming this is coming from the CVT, rather than the fuel filter assembly, since it happens only under a light load. It is significantly worse and more frequent when the engine is still cold, but I can occasionally feel it at operating temperature, just not as intensly.
I found threads with this same problem related to CVTs on other cars' forums(without solutions of course), but none on this one so I figured I would ask. I have just purchased new Honda CVT fluid and a trans filter to see if this fixes the problem, since the previous owner could have used some non-Honda trans fluid in this (I really hope not). He did tell me all the fluids were changed right before I bought it so I am thinking that could possibly be why I didn't feel it until a week after buying it.
I will change my CVT fluid and filter this weekend, and keep this thread updated should it fix my problem. If anyone has any suggestions or solutions, I'd greatly appreciate hearing them! Thanks! :grin2:
