It's too bad they can't pin-point the issue here. I have my doubts on the amount of CVT fluid too. Total system capacity is like ~16qts. I'm sure a drain and fill would be a fraction of that. Probably more like 4-5qts max. The rest is held in the system and torque converter. I hope they plan on doing 2-3 drain/fill cycles with the 13qts you're paying for. I doubt they'll do a "flush" unless there's a clear procedure in the service manual. Generally if the trans has drain and fill plugs like the CVT does, it's not intended to be cooler line flushed.
