ctx.jpg?1515075354812 In 1987 Ford and Fiat started to produce the type of automatic transmission called CVT. This innovative system was designed on the basis of the Van Doome mechanism, which was installed in small cars (DAF) in 1955.

The Ford CTX transmission operates on the principle of belt driving applied in Van Doome transmissions, but with some peculiarity, namely, usage of a single steel belt (operating in compression) instead of two rubber drive belts (operating in tension).

Technical issues and repair guidelines

This type of gearboxes is used for FWD vehicles with the capacity up to 1.6 liters. It is claimed, that this transmission is more economically viable solution in comparison with usual automatic gearboxes.

This transmission has a smoothly shifting gear ratio over the entire speed range. Transmission of the torque from the engine to the main drive shaft is performed not via converter, but through the multi-plate clutch. The transmission control unit provides an optimal gear ratio for any driving mode with a maximum efficiency coefficient of the engine. There is a kick-down mode which facilitates to the speed increase in cases of overtaking or uphill movement. This mode is activated when the accelerator pedal is fully depressed and held in this state.
