Transmission general data

Number of gears Transmission Type Drive Torque (Nm) ATF (full capacity) L ATF type

The CVT transmission VT20E was used for FWD Opel Vectra of English and German assembly with engine capacity equal to 1.8 liters. The VT25E modification found application in American FWD Saturn VUE and Ion (2.2 liters capacity).

This CVT equipped with a push belt is perfectly adjusted, therefore it rarely gets in repair services. During the first 150-200 thousand kilometers of exploitation, drivers just should not forget to replace filters and change transmission fluid in a timely manner (depending on the driving style).

Technical issues and repair guidelines

A minimum set of procedures during the overhaul of these CVTs includes the following:

- Belt replacement

- Replacement of all spare parts, gaskets, seals, sealing strips, rings, which often include two pistons

Friction elements of Forward pack often get burnt, including a bearing disc and pistons, the whole set of frictions gets replaced.

Problems of “old” VT25E:

- Valve Body, VT25E CVT.

- Planetary gear, Reverse (6 Gear) .

It is required to replace CVT when cones get worn out (because of aggressive accelerations "at a cold motor" and driving with contaminated oil).
