This article discusses trouble codes, symptoms and the main OEM Mitsubishi part needed to fix the issue in discussion.
This is in regards to: CVT Transmission Part Number: 2700A403
Some vehicles with the Mitsubishi Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) may experience issues in which the following Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC s) are returned:
In layman’s terms:
Sometimes the transmission/transaxle, which has a belt system inside, will experience a gear failure. The transmission stops being able to apply pressure to spin the belt.
To get a little more technical, the transmission might shudder or surge. This is due to issues inside the hydraulic pressure circuit. The CVT belt might then start to slip. The friction causes a powder buildup that enters the pressure circuit, which may trigger a warning light to go off, and the codes listed above to be reported.
Make sure all software has been updated for the CVT’s control unit. If all software has been updated, the CVT may need to be replaced.
If you are not repairing the transmission yourself, a mechanic will need to test drive your vehicle to duplicate the problem. If the problem can be duplicated, the diagnostic computer that was attached while driving will be able to record data needed to ascertain that a new CVT is needed. At present, that should be covered by Mitsubishi’s 10 year/100,000 mile warranty if you are the original owner, or the 5 year/60,000 mile warranty if you are a subsequent owner.
The 2016 Lancer 4WD will need part number 2700A403.
The 2015 Outlander Sport 4WD will need the same transmission.
