    So I’m doing a drive train overhaul on my 2005 Subaru Outback 2.5 n/a before I sell it.

My Outback has over 150k miles and is 10-11 years old. Has anyone had luck having the dealership make the fix without paying for it recently? I’m not in...

    I'm in the middle of a JDM replacement for my EZ30D. I've got the JDM in place, bell housing bolts and pitch stopper tightened, cherry picker removed, jack under the transmission lowered, engine mount bolts tightened. Not that experienced, but I've been following three YouTube videos and...

    Hello Outback friends, Main Question: Can a bad torque converter and/or valve body damage the main CVT? ( 4th Gen 2012 Outback 2.5 with 130k miles) My symptoms are hesitation / lurching from a stop to drive. I've read through many posts about torque converters and CVTs but none quite answer...
