  1. Gen 4: 2010-2014
    My AT Temp, Break and Vehicle Dynamic Control lights all come on when I place the car in reverse and drive. It seems to shift okay, but I took it to my independent mechanic. He said it through some codes for the transmission and he thought it probably needed the valve body replaced, but that...

    Well I finally did it I got a subaru. I just got a 2011 outback and ran into a couple small issues. First one is the Christmas tree of lights flashing after driving for a while. Brake light cruise lights traction control light awd light. All of them I assume it’s the common issue of the valve...

    I have a 2010 Outback that I bought used. I live in NW Montana and 2 weeks ago after consistent below zero temps, the car wouldn't start. I charged the battery, got it to start but then the same thing happened the following 3 days. I changed out the battery to a cold-temp battery, the car...
  4. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    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).

  8. Gen 4: 2010-2014
    Hello Outback friends, Main Question: Can a bad torque converter and/or valve body damage the main CVT? ( 4th Gen 2012 Outback 2.5 with 130k miles) My symptoms are hesitation / lurching from a stop to drive. I've read through many posts about torque converters and CVTs but none quite answer...
  9. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    Hello everyone! I have a 2008 Subaru Outback 3.0 Bean with a bad Turbine Speed Sensor 2. It is going to be relatively expensive to replace the valve body (around $800), and I don't even know what it'll cost to get a new transmission. I have been searching for a used replacement transmission...
