CVT Road Test

1.Warm up the engine to normal operating temperature (the radiator fan comes on).

2.Apply the parking brake, and block rear wheels. Start the engine, the shift to [D] position while pressing the brake pedal. Press the accelerator pedal, and release it suddenly. The engine should not stall.

3.Test in [P] position:
park the vehicle in a slope about 16°, apply parking brake, and shift into [P] position. Release the brake; the vehicle should not move.

4.To test-drive the vehicle, remove the glove box cover and glove box, and remove the passenger's lower cover, then remove the access cover.

5.Set the digital multitester (A) to monitor throttle position sensor voltage with tapered tip probe (B).

 

6.Monitor the voltage between PCM connector terminals A15 and A23 or A24.

 

7.Test-drive the vehicle on a flat road in the position in the table. Check that the engine speeds meet the approximate vehicle speeds at that throttle position sensor voltage shown in the table.
