  1. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    Planning to do a transmission flush on my 2011 3.6R. I’ve scoured this site for the past year and came across the AMSOIL flush success story here: 2010 5eat torque converter clutch shudder I have a shudder and what feels like the clutch sticking when in 5th. It has become more frequent and...
  2. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    Before I start throwing OCV solenoids at my probably, can anyone offer some guidance on my troubleshooting efforts? I constantly recieve the P0024 code. This morning I reset through my OBDmx bluetooth adaptor (and OBD Link app) then drove with no active codes, and very poor performance. When I...
  3. Engine & Drivetrain
    Hoping for some help here...Took my 2013 Subaru Outback 3.6R (w/70k miles) to the shop after I heard some knocking while idle and increasing with RPMs going up. They think it is connecting rod bearings (new engine required) but would want to do $145 scope to confirm it isn't the fly wheel or...
  4. Gen 5: 2015-2019
    Hello friends. I was at my dealer getting an oil change and differential fluid replacement. My rep informed me the torque converter seal/gasket has a slight leak. He stated the seal is $30, but the total repair with labor would cost around 2K. He said it take a minimum of 11 hours labor to...
  5. Lighting, Electrical & Electronics
    I have 1-yr old battery on my 2012 3.6R that kind of been sitting more than driven this past year. I probably only drive it on average once a week for 20-30 miles. Last Monday I drove the car for about 10 miles only and Saturday the batter died. I jump started and let it run for about 5-10...
  6. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    Hello, I noticed recently that my 2012 3.6R 6AT seems to shift up too early/at lower rev (~2500). What could be the root cause for this type of symptom? I haven't checked the trans-fluid yet, could low transmission fluid cause this? Does low-trans fluid have light sensor on the dashboard or I...

    I drive a 2012 Outback 3.6r and last week when I installed my mid armor transmission skid plate the gold bolts that I used felt really tight while I was torquing them down. I cleaned out the threaded holes before installing and hand tightened them to begin. Anybody have similar issues when...

    Sorry Subaru is getting rid of the 3.6 R. As far as I’m concerned, all things considered, the best engine Subaru ever produced. I’m afraid after owning 4 outbacks I’m done with them. A turbo 4 is a poor replacement for the 3.6R.
  9. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    Ive done lots of searching around but I thought Id make a post to get some feed back too. My outback with 150k on it had started to do minor studdering around 145k but it had not affected driving enough to matter... When the studdering first began I searched it up and decided it was an issue...
  10. Tire Discussion
    Thoughts on whether I should get winter tires, please!!! Also, suggestions on what type/brand. We are planning a cross-country (New England to San Diego and back) trip this winter. While there's some areas that can be snowy, the rest seems likely to be clear or only rainy. Our ride: 2017...
  11. Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    Hi all, first post here. I recently purchased a 2011 3.6R and I am looking to replace the wheels. I’m interested in a set of 2021 crosstrek rims. Will a 48mm to 55mm offset limit me any? It doesn’t seem like a large difference but I’m not sure. I eventually wanted to get a more aggressive tire...
  12. Engine & Drivetrain
    My 2011 Outback 3.6R has been a great car but there is a misfire problem that causes the CEL to come on, brake and traction lights to flash, and cruise control to be disabled. The car has about 105,000 miles and is in good condition. Generally it happens on a cold start, and then the engine runs...

    Test drove a 2018 3.6R today and noticed the car gets a lot of wind noise above 50 mph especially at 60 when coasting. Is this normal? I thought maybe with the crossbars set in place or is this a problem that should be looked into before buying?
  14. Outback Shopping
    First Post Warning: Due to a motocross injury and this wheelchair life I've been searching and researching for the last few months for an Outback. I definitely want a 3.6R and I'm not crazy about the CVT in the 2015+ as well as all the additional tech and beeps. I was initially thinking an...
  15. Gen 5: 2015-2019
    I bought a used 2019 3.6R about 6 months ago. Recently, I was driving down the highway when there was a smell of burnt rubber coming in the car (no smoke though). I immediately stopped and when popped the hood, the smell was even stronger (still no smoke). I took it to a Subaru dealer who at...

    My AC isn't very cool, at all, even on the lowest setting. Any tips to help that? Possibly low on freon?

    Came with an engine I bought and I do not need it. I was told 86k miles and it looks the part. Externally pretty clean and fluid looks great. $400 OBO pickup in Toledo Ohio
  18. Oil, Oil Filters, and Fuel Discussion
    Hi everyone, looking to this forum for some real advice. I purchased my used 2012 Outback 3.6r in August 2020 at 119k miles. I am a college student and finally saved up some money to get the car and was super excited. I also drive ALOT. Since I got the vehicle in August the odometer now reads...
