I see that 5 other individuals have complained of the same problems on your site. Subaru calls the spin on filters life time parts. Part is only replaced as full driveshaft unit. In total I have been towed 3 times, two different service centers and certified. From checking things out, I believe that this has to be done through the dipstick tube. Replaced clutch assembly under warranty 53226 km Clutch assembly needed replacement. The Subaru owner must not overfill the transmission fluid level which can create additional transmission problems.
Can someone help me please. In appearance, it is very similar to the earlier designed 5 speed Split case gearbox but has some new developments. Both front wheel bearings were replaced, however, the noise still remained. It's good to see the level of activity and information that you have here. The engine, with the car stopped and in gear, ran up over 2000 rpm. The car was repaired by replacing the entire shifter mechanism with a used one.
Spent time to grind down pins and brackets so pad movement improved. Clearly, the local garage was used to working with Detroit designs, where the auto transmission dipstick and filler are on the passenger side of the engine. I will leave that for someone with better knowledge of your transmission like transman. Well as they found that the transmission filter was not a Subaru brand and nor was the fluid, they wanted to change it and then run a diagnostic test, saying that maybe that other filter caused the problem. However, transmission failure is a common problem with all makes of vehicles if their fluid is not changed at the intervals that I mentioned above. The car is not old enough 3 years 60K miles to have a problem like this! The noisy reverse only started immediately after I had added rngine oil.

I went to see the dealer principle to take the vehicle back. This problem would have been significantly cheaper to fix if there had been a warning that there was a problem. Fix was to replace a valve body on the transmission. After test driving the vehicle several times, the mechanic stated that it appeared to be improving. I was not looking over my shoulder.
The front wheels spun fast as they should and the back wheels went very slowly. Replace transmission pressure line solenoid 185068 km Car jerking when changing from 2 to 3rd. As a result, had to replace the solenoids, the torque converter, and all the fluid. Have lifted the positive cable on the battery several times just in case, but light remains Anybody have any ideas? The dealership said they had never seen it happen before. She continues to do the trans fush and change filter and fluid every time it occurs but the jolt she gets when it engages is very disturbing. Do you have an automatic transmission? Replaced front pads, driver's side rotor, slide pin boots. You put the fluid in the same tube as the dip stick occupies.
This become worse and vibration at highway speeds started under acceleration. I am guessing it is the clutch slave cylinder, so I replaced that myself. Since the pump uses the fluid for lubrication and cooling, running without fluid will quickly wear and destroy the pump. Thanks, Semmes First, the really obvious things. It really bogged down on a hill next to her house. We were not able to simply replace that part because I partially destroyed the shifter when forcing into gear.
Throwout bearing failed and buzzing loudly. In my opinion the manufacturers have been remiss in recent years by removing transmission fluid changes from the recommended maintenance list and making it more difficult to change. It is very easy to do a lot of expensive damage to these cars through ignorance or neglect. I was not on the phone. Their estimate is that there is a loss of pressure somewhere. We discussed this further, and thought that it might be a case where the reset process simply took longer than we originally thought. Replaced front pads, driver's side rotor, slide pin boots.
Finally after all that I still have the transmission problem and rarely use it because I am affraid to drive it with my two babies I have, I use my fathers car. They responded the Forester was sold as is and didn't care even if the vehicle fell in half once it leaves their lot. Replace clutch and throwout bearing. You actually surprised me as most wouldn't know what that is! I spoke with both the dealer and Subaru representative and they won't cover the cost of a new transmission because I am out of warranty. While disconcerting, such behavior is to be expected from any Subaru automatic transmission.
