    Need help! I just started working on a 2011 Outback that's been sitting for a while. When I turn the engine on, the "At Oil Temp" light starts blinking immediately. I know usually that light means the transmission is too hot typically due to low transmission fluid levels but what bugs me is that...

    Hello everyone. I drive a 2019 Outback Touring 3.6R I purchased new on 12/27/2018. I drive a lot of miles (45k-50k annually), so keeping up with my vehicle's maintenance, meaning fluids, is very important. I have my CVT serviced approximately every 50k miles, and recently had my dealer service...

    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...

    So I've been desperately trying to get the valve body fixed on my 2013 Subaru Outback that's throwing a P0971 code (checked by the dealer). The dealer is only willing to change the entire transmission which is egregious obviously since it's probably actually only a single $150 solenoid that's...

    So I managed to pick up a bone stock XT with a manual a few months ago and I've been working on replacing the old parts. One issue that I've run into is that the transmission makes a grinding noise when I am in gear but not touching the gas. If the trans is out of gear, it does not make a...

    Jiffy Lube accidentally put differential fluid into my sealed continuously variable transmission. I discovered that the next day when we were going down the freeway at 70 MPH and it locked up and we came to a screeching halt. Jiffy Lube wants to put a $2000 used transmission in the car...

    I have an outback 2008 4AT 168 miles and i check the trans oil and it is not too dark yet but it is not too red. My question is, if I change the external and internal oil filter will be good? So far I know, any transmision you not have to change the oil of any transmision because then after few...
