transmission replacement

  1. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    This is the 4th Subaru I've owned but unfortunately it will likely be the last. I recently brought my Subaru to my local dealer because I got a letter in the mail about needing to replace the airbags due to a recall.

    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...

  6. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    Been driving a 2011 Outback w/ 113k for barely a month when the CEL, BRAKE light, AT oil temp light, traction control, and cruise control started flashing. Everything seemed fine when it was bought, clean CARFAX, regular maintenance, evidently taken care of, etc. Read the diagnostics and got...

    Hey everyone! So the center diff on my 2000 legacy died, and I figured I would just replace the whole transmission. I've gotten everything taken off around the trans, and the trans is most of the way out. Big problem though, is that the torque converter/flex-plate is stuck in the motor, and...
