    Gen 2: 2000-2004
    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...

    Hi everyone. I have a 05 XT with 151600 on it. The 5EAT is going out on it, and I wanna replace it as soon as possible, and I am not going to spend upwards of $5000 for a reman tranny.

  6. Questions about TCM's "Learning Mode"

    Problems & Maintenance
    I have 2 TCM-related questions: 1. Does anyone know whether the TCM's "Learning Mode" can ever clear by itself?

    Gen 4: 2010-2014
