Hello Scotty,

My name is Luis,

I am a huge fan and admirer of your work and dedication to the automobile world and I thank you for all your wisdom.
However it seems I have run into a bit of a pickle with an import vehicle, a 2009 mitsubishi Lancer with a CVT transmission.
It belongs to a buddy of mine and we can't get it over 20mph and it stays in first gear. One day all of a sudden it just wouldnt speed up as usual...what do you suppose we can do about this CVT?

Thank you in advance for all your help

God Bless..

it has no gears, odds are transmission is shot, typical on those poorly made Mits. BUT, have a pro like me scan it first, pray it's electronic failure that doesn't require a rebuild
