Scotty,
I'm from the Toledo, Ohio area and I have a 2006 Ford Freestyle with over 163,000 miles.
It drives normal, but at a complete stop, the wrench light comes on and puts the car in limp mode, and resets when I pull over, turn the car off, and turn it back on and It'll drive normal again, till I come to a complete stop. I took it to a transmission shop, and found out it leaked CVT fluid. They also found error codes P0701 Transmission Control System Range/Performance,
P0871 Transmission Fluid Pressure Sensor/Switch C Circuit Range/Performance,
And P0961 Pressure Control Solenoid A Control Circuit Range/Performance. Is it worth fixing or would it cost more than the whole car is even worth? If there's a way to fix it myself, what's the fix?

No, I'm staying away from CVTs all together. I'm gonna look at some Ford Explorers.

I don't know abt Fords but Nissan sells rebuilt CVTs for $2500 minus $800 core charge. Plus a ton of labor for swapping it out.

Well, I'm getting a truck next time, so I'm sticking with my Fords.

I was just at Toledo making a video there. it generally would cost more than the vehicle is worth with those codes which inevitably mean it needs the tranny rebuilt or replaced. And most guys dont' know crap about rebuilding those CVTs. I'd get a toyota next time
