  2. Engine & Drivetrain
    '08 Outback, 5AT, 164k miles, owner never replaced ATF (black color now). Changing gears with a kick on low speeds, smooth on high speeds. Took off valve control body, going to replace solenoids. How bad do shavings in the pan look to you? Salvageable?

    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...

    We have a brand new (purchased ~4 weeks ago, ~400 miles) 2021 Subaru Outback Premium. A week ago, while driving in a city downtown, the car stopped responding and the engine began revving -- almost as if it had shifted into neutral. (It was in drive.) Luckily no other cars were nearby, but had...

    Hello, I have a 2012, Outback 3.6R (6-cylinder) which I took in for service December 2019 (at 74,000 miles) and the technicians recommended a transmission fluid flush. Since purchasing the car at 44,000 miles, this is the only transmission fluid flush I've had done (can't speak for before...
  8. General Discussions
    Good day to everyone. I have two Outbacks, the oldest is a 2013 2.5i Premium. The brakes need changing and I just went over 100k, so I was looking to get the transmission fluid changed. However, my regular mechanic stated that he does not recommend changing the transmission fluid in these...

    I just finished my first ever replacement of my timing belt and water pump on my 2011 Outback and am proud to say the timing is correct and my DIY job didn’t result in my engine destroying itself! When I was removing the fans for the timing belt job I also had to disconnect the two CVT fluid...
