  1. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    2014 Outback 2.5i Limited with 94k mi. The car shakes heavily when decelerating/coming to a stop. When you first start the car up it does not do this. However, it gets progressively worse the longer the car is driven. Subaru did a fuel injector cleaning, and replaced the torque converter +...

    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...
  3. 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...

    So I’m doing a drive train overhaul on my 2005 Subaru Outback 2.5 n/a before I sell it. I mated the engine to the transmission just to realize that the torque converter wasn’t seated properly so I wasn’t able to bolt the torque converter to the engine. I took the engine off again and realized I...

    Hey Folks, I just picked up a 2011 Outback with about 159k on the clock. Timing belt done recently, no misfire/leaks/engine lights/no CVT shudder! (fingers crossed). I do need rear wheel bearings and at least one axle. Can anyone recommend a single reasonably priced and mid-quality parts...
  6. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    Hey All, new member here. I recently bought a 2011 Outback, and had it nearly stall out at a light and the shop says it’s the Torque Converter. 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...
  7. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    Hello Internet! Sorry for long post! I am a happy owner of a 2012 Subaru Outback 2.5L with CVT at 195k km / ~121k miles - as mentioned in my signature (yes, I read the "New users, read this first" :) ). Some time ago I was driving at reasonably low speeds 50kph / 30mph when I had to avoid...

    Gang, I'm about the crank over my rebuilt 1997 Outback EJ25D with Automatic, and I can't find the baggie with my four Flex Plate ("Flex Drive" in the FSM) to Torque Converter bolts. ****. And I can't seem to find the part number on the web. Anyone know what number to order? Any help...

    When it reaches a constant speed it shakes for a couple seconds. There are no check engine codes, or history codes. My normal mechanic thinks it's the torque converter(TC) and wants to charge $440 to drain and fill an bunch of times since he doesn't have a transmission flush machine. The...

    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...
