  1. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    Planning to do a transmission flush on my 2011 3.6R. I’ve scoured this site for the past year and came across the AMSOIL flush success story here: 2010 5eat torque converter clutch shudder I have a shudder and what feels like the clutch sticking when in 5th. It has become more frequent and...
  2. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    Hi as title says my transmission is slipping and won’t drive. I have had the car for 6000KL (3000mi) with zero problems from transmission till the other day. I drove 3 KL from house and turned off road and on the downshift the engine revved to 4000 and it drove another 200 yards before it...
  3. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    Hi all, My 2011 outback recently started jerking when accelerating from first gear. Shortly after, the at temp oil light, check engine, brake light and cruise lights started flashing. I did a lot of research and found that this is a somewhat common problem with this year and model and it seems...

    A few months back I bought a 2022 Subaru Outback. There’s about 2500 miles on it but it seems like the transmission downshifts too soon when decelerating. I thought it was the pre-collision breaking being too sensitive but it still happened when I turned it off. It feels as if the brakes are...

    I have a 99’ outback but the tranny is on its way out it’s a 4eat but I was wondering if I could swap a 5eat but keep the original 4.44 final drive ratio, would the original 1999 4eat difs work with a ‘08 5eat and how would I change the front dif.

  7. Engine & Drivetrain
    Hi All - I have a 2019 3.6 with 93,000 miles. I bought it new and I'm the only one who drives it. I drive over 100 miles per day - 98% of which is a gentle highway commute. I tow a 950# boat about 10x a year for roughly 3000 miles/year total. I've been meticulous about fluid services and use a...

    My Outback was running great. One day it wouldn’t start and we thought it was a bad connection to the battery. Wiggled the wiring to the battery it started. While driving all the check engine, transmission, brake light, everything on dashboard came on and blinking. Ended up getting new starter...

    Hi everyone! To start I don't know much about cars, but I'm making this post on behalf of a family member so I apologize if wording or terminology is off. We have a 2006 Outback, Automatic, 2.5L, and we are looking to replace the transmission. I came on here to ask if anyone knows or has had...

    '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?

    Hey all, I'm sourcing a used tranny to swap into my 2008 LL Bean Outback (3L auto). After a lot of asking around this seems like my best option vs. a rebuild, which would run me $3,500 + CAD and supposedly is really hard to pull off (according to a veteran Subaru transmission pro). Does the...
  13. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    I have an automatic 2010 3.6R with 174k miles. A month ago I had the transmission fluid and diff. fluid changed, since then the following problems have occurred: airplane-like noise while going around corners rattling while shifting from 1st to 2nd -trouble getting into gear (actually seems...
  14. Gen 6: 2020-Future
    I've had 2 instances of Eyesite kicking in since we got the car in April 1) trying to turn around in a small alley, with lots of back and forthing to get turned around. 2) Changing lanes to the left amongst a lot of traffic (today). In this case I think it was a little bit aggressive as I knew...

    Hey all. This is my first post so I'm not sure if anyone will even see this. Anyway. I have swapped a manual transmission into my outback. Everything mechanically is in the car and in good condition. Can anyone tell me what to do with the wiring so I can start to drive my car again? Thank you.
  16. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    Hi. I’ve got an 05 outback 2.5 natural aspiration AT. My mechanic showed me leaks in the hard lines (rusted at the hold down brackets) & said best I should replace all three hard lines before I have a catastrophic failure. I can’t find those parts for my car anywhere. I don’t want to/can’t...

    2009 Outback 180k miles. Trans rebuilt 2-years ago. Went to start it last week, started fine, put it in reverse to get out of garage, it went about 5 feet and stopped. Engine good, but it's like it hit an object. Thought I ran over a snow shovel. Got down on hands and knees, nothing I could see...
  18. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    Hello everyone, I currently own a 2016 Outback Limited trim, and recently I noticed that it takes a lot more force to switch the gear from P to R. The interesting part about this issue is that the it isn't always stiff and occurs only about 1/3 of the time. Has anyone dealt with this...

    I drive a 2014 outback limited, full loaded. It is about 160k mi. Hearing an unusual noise ended up as a transmission problem at a local dealer and ask for 8200+ tax to replace it. The car value is between 8000-12000 on KBB. The dealer offered me $1500. What is my best option? Fix the...
  20. Engine & Drivetrain
    Hi - I'm thinking about rebuilding my 2006 2.5i Outback and I was wondering if anyone has a sense of what the average life expectancy is for the 4-speed automatic (4EAT) transmission? I don't drive the car hard. Most of the mileage is on the open road. I do drive off-road a lot, but I'm very...
