What Does CVT means?

Normal automatics have a certain number of gears that are referred to as “speeds,” hence “6-speed automatic,” for example. The reason is that each gear is good only for a certain vehicle speed, so if you need to keep accelerating, the transmission will shift up through the gears — first 1, then 2 and so forth.

But a continuously variable transmission technically have no gears; instead, it’s like having one magical gear that’s variable through all driving situations. That’s why you don’t even feel shifts from gear to gear like in a normal car. Everything you’ll notice is changes in engine speed, or RPM: higher for acceleration, lower for cruising.

Vibration at Idle: It’s the job of the motor and transmission mounts to dampen vibration. When they break, you’ll feel excessive vibration, especially at idle. You can diagnose this yourself by putting your car in neutral. If the shaking lessens, you very well could have broken mounts, Other possible reason for vibration apart from this Timing Belt, Fuel Tank, Spark Plug, Hoses.
