CVT Recharge was formulated and designed specifically to restore performance to additive-depleted, continuously variable transmission (CVT) fluid when problems occur before normal fluid change intervals. Let’s take a look.

Lubegard’s CVT Recharge is a concentrated additive, formulated to provide the anti-wear and extreme pressure protection needed to protect sheaves and belts. It solves problems like shudder and noisy operation.

It restores and enhances the CVT fluid to give you better performance and smoother, more consistent shifting. This can be added to full synthetic, semi-synthetic, conventional, and low viscosity CVT fluids.

Be careful: do not add to automatic transmission fluid or dual-clutch transmission fluid. Lubegard has other solutions to help those transmissions.

CVT Recharge benefits the CVT transmission in many ways. Used CVT fluid often becomes additive-depleted many miles before it should. Premature wear, noisy operation, high or low fluid levels causing foaming and slipping are symptoms of fluid problems. While you cannot see these issues with your eyes, you will often hear and feel them.

You may need to remove some fluid before adding the Recharge. If you’re at or above the fill level, please remove up to 10 ounces of fluid to make room. If you’re below the fill line, you can add the Recharge.

To apply, locate the transmission dipstick tube or the transmission fluid fill port and pour in the 10-ounce bottle of Recharge. Consult the OE procedure for setting fluid level to assure proper fill level.

As fluids age, heat transfer declines and additives become depleted. This results in shuddering, sticking valves, premature belt wear, noisy operation and slipping chains or belts. All the result of tired, worn out fluid.

Using Lubegard’s CVT Recharge restores additive content to the used fluid and allows the transmission to function as designed until the regularly scheduled fluid service can occur.

It’s as simple as that. Lubegard CVT Recharge will help restore your transmission fluid performance, shift smoother, and stay on the road longer.

CVT Recharge works in all makes and models with a Continuously Variable Transmission that takes a purpose made CVT fluid. Some CVT transmissions require ATF, not a CVT fluid. Be sure to check your owner’s manual for more information.

Again, be careful: do not add CVT Recharge to ATF or DCT. One 10-ounce bottle of CVT Recharge will treat up to a 10-quart system. A maximum of 2 ounces per quart can be used safely in a vehicle. Do not exceed this recommendation.

CVT Recharge usually works quickly but can take up to 150 miles of operation in severe cases to take effect. The additives in this bottle are not consumed, but rather improve with age so the benefits will last the life of the fluid until your next flush or drain and fill.

Mass Air Flow Sensor Cleaners

What can you do both for maintenance and for service and diagnostics to confirm a mass airflow sensors functioning properly? Andrew Markel shares the secret in this video sponsored by Auto Value and Bumper to Bumper.

The theory and operation of any mass airflow sensor is pretty basic. What you have is a wire in the Airstream entering the engine. It has current running through it. This current heats up the wire. As the air flows over this wire, it changes the resistance in the wire. The change in resistance shows the ECM, how much air is entering into the engine. But by heating up a wire that is in the Airstream entering the engine, even after the filter, it can have contaminants that can stick to that hot wire and cause faulty readings about the air entering into the engine. This can cause numerous codes because either it's under or over reporting the air entering the engine, and it's not very accurate. And using the oxygen sensor, the ECM can see issues with the mass airflow sensor. So what can you do both for maintenance and for service and diagnostics to confirm a mass airflow sensors functioning properly?
