Honda jazz 2008 Juddering solved XADO Ex120
« on: September 21, 2022, 10:34:45 AM »
My car had the CVT juddering problems. I flushed the CVT fluid with the Honda dealer and then added Ex120 myself. Problem went away 99%. after 7 months and 14000 miles problem is is slightly back not fully but 99% to back to 85-80%.

Can I add another EX120 tube or half?  I don't want to re-flushed the CVT fluid only did it 7 months ago. should I give it another ex12?  may be it work for another 6 months. then I can do a re-flush of CVT fluid with EX120. probably it will be the end of the gear box . I am currently at 87000 miles if I push this and get over 100000 miles I will be happy

do some search on this forum. Many people have had success using EX120.  I  could not drive at all and I have driven 14000+ miles using 25 Ex120.... so how is that sneak oil. I am going to use it again and may be this time it will 8000 miles.  but by then car would well over 110000+ miles and 16 years old. so no point spending 1500+ with Honda replacing a gear box. Or second have CVT gear box that cost 500 with out knowing how long it will last. even the gear box last another 5 years, rest of the car will not

How did it drive after the fluid flush and replace (I am assuming it was drained, refilled, run for a bit, drained and refilled again) but before you added the EX120?
One member here had a CVT, used for his driving school, which did 256,000 miles before a seal went destroying his gearbox. 110,000 miles is nothing to a Jazz.

Flushed was done at Swindon honda. They flushed it twice at the same time. Then the ex 120.
I just don't if I should add more ex 120 to the existing CVT fluid. Or I should  get new fluid and add ex120.

I know 110000 is nothing for an jazz. But for
the amount I paid I made enough use of it.

Try changing the fluid and see what that does. If it doesn't sort it add your brew.

Does fluid require flushing every 14000 miles?      Replacing old badly degraded fluid  can bring big improvements and adding EX120 may improve it further.  That when users tend to report good results.

But If the fluid is still relatively new and already  has Ex 120 in it  I doubt replacing it , or adding more additive  will make any significant difference.  The transmission is just getting older.       .

Could even make it worse.  There comes a point when using more additive may dilute the effects of the basic fluid.  You wouldn't fill your engine with 100% additives but no actual  oil so why do it with the transmission.
Sorry if its too long winded. I failed my brevity exam at school. Ran out of paper.

Not very familiar with the Jazz CVT,  the Fluid was changed,  are there any Filters for the CVT gearbox? Inside or outside the gearbox.

Not as far as I am aware. I had double CVT flush then refill and EX-120 2 years ago 9k miles since, still fine but will repeat process next year.
