I have a 2002 Outback wagon with the H6 and I feel that there is an issue with the transmission. I posted about it in the gen 2 forum but it got nowhere but I have more information anyway. When the car goes to over 55 the torque converter locks up. My first question is if it is supposed to unlock upon deceleration or does it stay locked. When I lift my foot off the gas pedal the RPMs hold, the torque converter stays locked as the car coasts. I feel bumping as I slow down, like the transmission is downshifting. I am not sure if all this is normal or not, nor do I know what is wrong with it if it isn't normal. When the torque converter doesn't unlock and I take my foot off of the gas pedal the RPM's immediately drop off. I am wondering if the torque converter is not unlocking properly. If someone could explain to me how the car is supposed to act I could get a better hold on the situation.
