I am new to this club and Subaru. I just bought a 2002 LL bean edition outback yesterday for a good price with some known problems. The main issue I am having is the transmission. There is a clunk when I start to move, while backing up at first I thought I had backed into something, it felt I hit something. Also when backing up or driving forward without accelerating, at different intervals, it comes to a stop with the symptoms best described as though the car just ran up against a large object in the path of the wheel, preventing the car from going forward. Along with those symptoms, grinding sounds from the transfer case. I have put the front on jack stand and put it in drive and reverse and sounds comes from the transfer case. Do I need a new transfer case/ transmission? Thank you for your help.
