Along with proper procedure, make sure you use the proper fluid!


it gets even better with the 2020 models in the mix.... two new types of fluid. There is a techtips article about the new 2020 fluid that it's not to be mixed with any other, and only that fluid is supposed to go in those transmissions.
HMMMM.

I was trying to figure out why the Ascent had so many more reported issues with it's HT TR690 compared to Outback's.

The only differences I could find seemed to be in ratios and programming (Gen 5 Outback had 6, Ascent had 8)

Fluid is also different though. Good info!

According to the mod over on the Ascent forum, I think it was mostly a defective TCM harness issue, although I think it's a bit early to say for sure.
