Maybe if you tried really hard. Try to avoid over tightening the new oil filter to prevent from damaging the rubber seal, which could lead to an oil leak, and also make it more difficult to remove during the next oil change. This can manifest in sticking valves, causing a harsh or delayed gear change. Automatic transmissions are very complicated beasts. Just like engines, parts that slide past each other without lubrication wears out eventually. Double check that the oil drain bolt and the new filter are tight before moving on to the next steps. Also the cvt fluild has to match the spec mentioned in service book - in my case it was J4 spec.
You are best to replace the oil and filter before it needs it to save your transmission. Allow the old oil to drain out for at least a few minutes or until the flow slows to just the occasional drip. I also felt that if i press the accelerator more, the power expected was not there.

These transmission have Bearing issues and oil pressure loss problems caused by lack of maintenance and using the wrong oil. The filter is there to prevent this very debris from recirculating through the transmission, but this also means that all of the fluid passes through it. But what hurts me is this why cant we have a strategic reserve of these old coal powered freight movers just in case of of catastrophe?.
If I never have to replace a seal again or change the gear lube it wont hurt my feelings at all Another thing about the electromotives was that you could start a load better then the wild unbrideled torque of the old steam beasts ,the Diesel electrics werent cheaper ,but the industry thought they were better. Because the cvt slips and wears all the time, the more you vary your speed the better since you are spreading the pulley wear across the entire range. Most are Asian and many are not available here. Start the engine and allow it to run for a few minutes, turn off the engine, and allow the oil to drain back down to the pan for at least 10 to 15 minutes. Is the whine at about 3000 rpm normal?.
The correct replacement oil filter part numbers vary depending on the model year of your Outlander Sport. Now, before we get into the when, let's look at the why. If a clutch isn't applied properly, it will slip more than it should, causing more debris to get into the fluid. The added bonus to changing your fluid regularly is that you or your mechanic can get a better idea of your transmission's health. It's only started doing it in the last 5000k's or so. Using a funnel, put the oil in through that tube. And your transmission fluid is central to all of it.
Carefully lower the vehicle from the jack stands by using the floor jack. Actually an cvt oil and filter change is mist at every 40,000kms if you want smooth, trouble free cvt. Do not over tighten the bolt when you re-install it. Donations are not tax deductible. You are best to replace the oil and filter before it needs it to save your transmission. The online service manual may have a torque value that is too high. In short, pressurised fluid moves components within the gearbox.
The filter is fine and not clogged. Then they tested the car by running in sports mode with high revs in various gears to make the tranny hot and replicate the problem and the whine is gone. Alternatively, you could use automotive ramps to raise the front of the car. If the drain bolt is equipped with a crush washer, inspect it and replace the washer if necessary.

Running an engine that has been overfilled with oil may cause sluggish performance, damage to seals, gaskets or other components.
After 5 kms, i took the exit onto a hilly road. The video above shows where the transmission fluid dipstick is located in your Outlander Sport and how to check the transmission fluid level. It would also be a good idea to check your parking spot, garage or driveway for drops of fresh oil which may indicate a leak from the drain bolt or the new filter. For example, if your transmission fluid is black and smells burned, there is likely a problem internally. The issue is related to software in the transmission control module. Transmissions without a dipstick will require you or your mechanic to be under the vehicle in order to change the oil so that a visual leak check can be performed.
A transmission getting insufficient fluid may have enough power to apply the clutches, partially. If all of the fluid used to power the transmission passes through one point, which then becomes blocked. Soon i would take to the expressway and same hilly road where i had heard the whine, but i am 100% sure the whine issue is resolved as it was the oil. If your transmission's manufacturer claims their product is good for 100,000 miles between services, I'd take their recommendation with a grain of salt, which brings me to our next point. Needless to say, you would be better off ignoring this claim. The difference here being that a sudden filter blockage may be repaired with an oil flush and a new filter.
In truth, there are many issues an automatic transmission can suffer that no amount of oil changes will prevent. A good indication of the fluid getting old is if you take a drop off the dips tick from the transmission and smell it it will have a burnt smell if it is getting old. In short, it goes everywhere. During circulation, your fluid may pass through gauze filters, metering valves, and any number of small orifices. This is why they are just replaced, not rebuilt. As for replacement, I understand that all the parts wear into each other so just replacing some parts during a rebuild would bring about poor results.
