Default Problems I Encounter On My Way To Iowa

At first, the car perform awesome but as soon as I pass Idaho and the freaking heat..my cvt tranny heating up, I stayed in salt lake city overnight so the car can cool down, then again Wyoming heat and humidity heats up my tranny again, another night I stayed and took it to Nissan dealer and they drain and fill the fluid with no charge..after Cheyenne, WY..i felt vibration when I accelerate..i stop and check..fuck!!!! Its the CV boot on my passenger side blew. I drove it as far as I could so AAA can tow it to my destination..and I also find out it cost $619 for that damn axle....what else with this damn car problem???? I need to trade it or sell it..oh btw..the infamous chain tensioner is going out too..

Sorry to hear about your troubles. Was something wrong with the tranny or was it the axle the whole time? I didn't quite follow you

The passenger axel is a little expensive but not $619 worth. I paid $120 for it. How many miles does your Max have?

the transmission is over heating and the belt is slipping. The axle problem is after that.

What codes are you getting?

I haven't many stories of overheating CVT's.

The CVT has a cooler on the transmission that has engine coolant running through it. So in theory, you may not have enough coolant or maybe there is a leak somewhere.

This will need to be done via Nissan dealer.

As for the Axle's, you can buy them yourself and get a local shop to do it. Or just have the shop order them, since they require a CORE-TRADE-IN.

Man that sounds like a while back for me. My wife's car did that in our way to New Mexico. Timing chain and power steering went out in Oklahoma.
