  1. ('03-'05) 2003 Forester Knock EJ25 non turbo

    EJ25 - 2.5L Non-Turbo (1998-2010)
    About 1k miles ago, I did HG & timing belt. I've been having issues with my battery dying, but always manages to to get enough to start. Then about a week ago, I get a noise that sounds like a bad lifter. It would sound for about 10 seconds when first starting then go away. Engine ran fine, no...
  2. ('03-'05) Torque Converter oil pump oil seal issue

    Transmission and Driveline
    I replaced my leaky converter seal. Back on the road and it's still leaking. Come to find out I have an 05 diff on my 03 forester. Dealership gave me an oil seal part number 806750050. When I looked at an ebay listing, they say an 05 should be 806750060 and that those 2 seals are not...
  3. 2007 Valve Body to a 2003 Tranny>??

    Transmission and Driveline
    So reverse this. If I have an 03 valve body, can I put it on an 05 transmission in an 03 Forester xs (03 TCU)?
  4. ('03-'05) Transmission Replacement Issue

    Transmission and Driveline
    Gotcha. I took both pans off and though they have the same (named according to fsm) solenoids, but they are arranged much differently and I haven't looked into enough but I'd wager changing them isn't in my best interest. Is my only option to get an 05 tcu? Could I be looking at other effects...

    Transmission and Driveline
    Okay, I kind of miss read your comment/quote. Anyway if that is the case, how did they get the 05 forester AT that I pulled out to work is my question then?

    I think the cel codes answered my question: P0743 Torque Converter Clutch System Electrical P0748 Pressure Control Solenoid Electrical P0753 Shift Solenoid A Electrical P0758 Shift Solenoid B Electrical P0776 Pressure Control Solenoid B Electrical
  7. ('03-'05) Transmission Replacement Issue

    Transmission and Driveline
    Not sure. I tried the secret hand shake on the at temp warning light but it just flashes constant. I did get a cel light just now so I'll have to get that read. My guess it's the electronics are either shot or not compatible. That's why posted to see if someone knew if it was compatible to rule...

    Transmission and Driveline
    So I did a compatibility test on this ebay listing and it says it's not compatible. Is that correct? 05 06 07 08 SUBARU FORESTER; AT Automatic Transmission, 4 Speed Gearbox | eBay
  9. ('03-'05) Transmission Replacement Issue

    Transmission and Driveline
    Long story short I put a new (used) transmission. I matched the code on the AT exactly from a friend that knew of a wreck forester. Fast forward, I get all set to go and now my electronics aren't working from the AT to the car. The AT Temp light flashes non stop and I don't have any...
  10. ('03-'05) Matching AT Tranmissions

    Transmission and Driveline
    I'm in the process of trying to find a replacement transmission on my 2003 forester XS (no turbo). Can someone shed some light on how to find a matching transmission?
  11. ('03-'05) Torque Converter Stuck, wont spin

    Transmission and Driveline
    I still have hope I didn't. See this post. https://grassrootsmotorsports.com/forum/grm/the-dreaded-subaru-torque-converter-situation/92399/page1/
  12. ('03-'05) Torque Converter Stuck, wont spin

    Transmission and Driveline
    Does anyone know if Subaru makes a tool to get the input shaft of the torque converter out? I tried making one but not having much luck grabbing the knobs.
  13. ('03-'05) Torque Converter Stuck, wont spin

    Transmission and Driveline
    So I did a rookie mistake. First time pulling an engine and my torque converter came out a little when i pulled the engine. Didn't think much of it. Push it back in. Fast forward, HG job done, and put engine back in, but I couldn't spin the engine to bolt the TC. SHOOT. Take engine back out, and...
  14. ('03-'05) HG job opinion about oil pump / main seal

    Problems, Maintenance, and Warranty
    Based on my photo would you suggest I reseal the oil pump?
  15. ('03-'05) HG job opinion about oil pump / main seal

    Problems, Maintenance, and Warranty
    Ya thought it was the main seal or oil separator plate but come to find it was dripping oil right out of the hg. Oh well, all in a days fun! Thanks for the link, I'll check it out.
  16. ('03-'05) HG job opinion about oil pump / main seal

    Problems, Maintenance, and Warranty
    Doing a hg job and have crusted oil deposits near the oil pump (see photo) and main seal and oil cooler Main seal and oil pump I'm guessing I need to redo, but what about the oil filter cooler? Is it coming from above the circlier part? I wiped most of the oil deposits off but you can see in...
  17. Longest Anyone has Driven with an External Headgasket Leak?

    EJ25 - 2.5L Non-Turbo (1998-2010)
    Do you have any suggestions on a parts list? I did a hg on an outback 7 years ago and bought a kit from Amazon, tossed the hg for oem ones and just used the gaskets seals. I'm doing a timing belt too, so I need a lot of parts. I read gates is a decent belt, but I'm not seeing a forester tb...
  18. Longest Anyone has Driven with an External Headgasket Leak?

    EJ25 - 2.5L Non-Turbo (1998-2010)
    Awesome. Hard to tell on mine as both sides have a lot oil. I'm guessing I'm on borrowed time. If the car had a complete timing belt job (new water pump and all seals ) at 105k think I should just do it over? At 155k now. I didn't pay much for the car and have put 30k on it and this is will...
  19. Longest Anyone has Driven with an External Headgasket Leak?

    EJ25 - 2.5L Non-Turbo (1998-2010)
    Is the external leak clear cut? I have a bad oil leak on both sides of the engine. The oil is everywhere leading back to the transmission. Thought originally it was the valve covers but after a closer inspection it's not. Looked at the coolant and my radiator is very low. Noticed some goo on...
