CAUTION:

  • Make sure not to get any of the drained fluid on your hands, etc.
  • The high temperature of the drained fluid could cause burns.
  • When working near the engine room while the engine has started or the ignition switch is ON, do not touch the rotating components such as the V-ribbed belt or cooling fan.
  • Touching the rotating components such as the V-ribbed belt or cooling fan could result in your hand or clothing getting caught and pulled in.

PROCEDURE

1. ADJUST FLUID LEVEL CVT HIGH TEMPERATURE

NOTICE:

To reduce load, make sure that all electrical systems, such as the air conditioning, lighting system, electric fan and audio system are off.

(a) Warm up and stop the engine.

(b) Check the fluid temperature.

NOTICE:

  • If the fluid temperature tends to decrease when the fluid temperature is between 85°C (185°F) and 90°C (194°F) with the engine idling, make sure that fluid temperature is above 90°C (194°F) before starting work.
  • If the fluid temperature tends to increase when the fluid temperature is between 85°C (185°F) and 90°C (194°F) with the engine idling, make sure that fluid temperature is below 85°C (185°F) before starting work.
  • If the fluid temperature tends not to change when the fluid temperature is between 85°C (185°F) and 90°C (194°F) with the engine idling, make sure that fluid temperature is 87.5°C (189.5°F) before starting work.

(c) Depress and hold the brake pedal.

(d) Start the engine.

(e) Slowly move the shift lever from P to D, and then back to P.

HINT:

  • Slowly move the shift lever to circulate the fluid through each part of the continuously variable transaxle assembly.
  • Keep the shift lever in each position for approximately 3 seconds.

(f) Lift the vehicle.

NOTICE:

Set the vehicle on a lift so that the vehicle is kept level when it is lifted up (make sure the tilt angle from the front to rear and side to side of the vehicle is within +/- 1°).

(g) Remove the No. 1 engine under cover assembly.

(m) Connect a compressed air hose to SST (tank assy).

NOTICE:

Do not apply 689 kPa (7.0 kgf/cm2, 100 psi) or more of compressed air to SST (tank assy).

(n) Open the lower valve of SST (tank assy) by turning the valve handle (lower valve) so it is in-line with the compressed air hose.

(o) Open the upper valve of SST (tank assy) by turning the valve handle (upper valve) so it is in-line with the hose of SST (tank assy).

  • Make sure to turn the valve handle (upper valve) slowly.
  • Make sure the value on the gauge of SST (vacuum regulator) stays between -10 and -20 kPa (-0.1 and -0.2 kgf/cm2, -1.5 and -2.9 psi).
  • If the value on the gauge of SST (vacuum regulator) exceeds -20 kPa (-0.2 kgf/cm2, -2.9 psi), make sure to turn the valve handle (upper valve) so it is perpendicular to the hose of SST (tank assy) immediately, otherwise parts inside the continuously variable transaxle assembly may be damaged.

HINT:

Vacuum will be applied to the continuously variable transaxle assembly when both of the valves of SST (tank assy) are opened to prevent fluid loss when removing/installing the overflow plug.

(p) Using a 10 mm hexagon socket wrench, remove the overflow plug and gasket from the transaxle case sub-assembly.

CAUTION:

A small amount of hot fluid may leak from the overflow plug port during removal.

HINT:

Place a container under the overflow plug to collect any fluid that leaks out.

(q) Install SST (adapter 18) to SST (overflow level gauge) and then install SST (overflow level gauge) to the overflow plug hole by hand until it is fully seated against the transaxle case sub-assembly.

NOTICE:

Ensure that the sliding tube of SST (overflow level gauge) is fully retracted into the housing of SST (overflow lever gauge) before inserting it into the overflow plug hole.

HINT:

The level/measurement indicator on SST (overflow level gauge) will read 0 mm (0 in.) when the sliding tube of SST (overflow level gauge) is fully retracted.
