Edit: I meant to say I rented a Ford Fusion not Focus with a CVT, this was filmed live and I can't edit it out

I see Scotty as a car doctor for almost all cars 🤣

honestly, even newer automatics don't even have a low gear selection, like L, or just first or second gear. But they all have a sport selection, because i guess that's something everyone needs.
Joe Evolution
It's so hard to find a manual transmission these days in a practical car in my opinion that should be more popular than automatics
john smith
Thats not true about cvt. I have a 2009 murano with cvt and live in Pennsylvania with bigger hills and my Nissan has a speed reducer going down the hill..stays at a steady speed

I'm a big fan Scotty
But I believe you now. You are cheap.
Why in the world would you rent a Ford Focus on vacation??
Roger Maxwell
Neither the Focus nor Fusion have offered a CVT. The Fusion Hybrid offers an E-CVT, but the principle of operation is completely different.

Hey Scotty! I’ve been watching your videos for a few months now and am so thankful for your 50+ years of experience and knowledge! Thank you for sharing! Would the AT-205 you mentioned in this video help with a head gasket that’s starting to go out on a 2003 Forester? Maybe give me a little more time?

ur cool man

You have to go to a aftermarket shop for they can put it the compressor

Couldn’t agree more. My Fussion has a cvt tranny and I live in the rockies. Yup, it can’t downshift going downhill. Bummer... Brake$ !

Need some help. Female friend of mine has a 2016 Dodge Journey V6. Check engine light is on and says cylinder #2 isn’t firing correctly. All spark plugs were changed, fuel injector changed and still having issues. It isles rough at stop signs and is under powered in third and fourth gear. Any ideas on what’s wrong with it?

Scotty is getting old or what? CVT vehicle has L gear that you can do engine brake! Sound likes a "user's error" to me.

Scotty do a tire episode, car, SUV, truck off road....

2016 Focus has a button on the left side of the shifter (feels like an overdrive button) that turns on the CVT “hill mode” and it initiates significant engine braking. It feels kinda like gen 2 Prius regen in B mode... I bought this car 2 days ago from a GSA auction.

Hey Scotty, I have an 07 Yaris I use as a work vehicle, it pulls a little 350lb trailer. Recently there’s been a squeaking sound when I turn on the ac. The vehicle has over 250k on it and I just wanted to know what I needed to replace to get it working right. First major repair for this yota. Thanks for your time !

How a CVT works! (Animation) Here's Why This Car is Dangerous 2 days ago   03:42

This animation explains the basic principle of CVTs (continuously variable transmission). Here, we look at the Variomatic and the Multitronic.

1) Input shaft, output shaft, metal belt
2) Continuously variable RPM
3) Pulleys and sheaves
4) Cogged v-belt, metal belt, CVT chain
5) Variomatic with centrifugal weights
6) Use of hydraulic oil pump
