2014 CVT fluid level
Semi noob here with my CVT question. My old Legacy was a standard auto and pretty straight forward.
Been searching around but can't seem to find a decent answer. I have a brand new 2014 forester 4,000miles, went to change the oil for the first time, and as you guessed it i grabbed the CVT drain plug by accident. I probably lost about 1/2 Qt. putting the plug back in.
Should I worry about it?
let it ride till i hit the 7500mile mark and I take it in for it's scheduled maintenance change. I was planning on complaining about the "bucking" action of the CVT at that time anyways to get them to check it...
Stop don't touch it have it towed to the dealership and shell out some ungodly amount to have the dealership check it. My dealer loves to do unnecessary work hence why I do my own routine stuff.
