  2. Transmission and Driveline
    My 2020 Subaru Forester has a CVT and I've noticed issues with it since I bought it a year ago. If I'm coasting or sometimes just slowing down under 20mph, I'll feel the car jerk forward. It's like a very rough transition from 2nd to 1st gear. I'm new to CVTs and thought they didn't have gears...

    I just wanted to see if any members on here have had experience with similar things to this. So I've had my 2014 Forester 2.5i Premium for a few years now and it has been great. Although it was getting up there on the miles and I had heard from others that I could run into issues with the CVT...

    Does anyone have experience installing the SUBARU TS JDM CVT TRANSMISSION COOLER KIT on a 2014 FXT Touring: https://www.subispeed.com/part/45512sg000-kit-subaru-ts-jdm-cvt-transmission-cooler-kit-2014-2018-forester-xt?aamail=1&aarule=7195&aacartid=5a95e3c6-c0b4-1297-c6a9-e15a4949e261#.YJLndS1h3hw
  5. Transmission and Driveline
    So eventually down the line I'm looking to swap my CVT to a manual. While this is a way away I do like everything about my 2017 premium the price difference between an out of warranty CVT and a manual to be a big factor in my thought process. My question is: How difficult would it be? Being that...
  6. Transmission and Driveline
    I've searched the forum but haven't found much. I have a 2019 Forester Touring and am looking to monitor my CVT temperature with an iOS device. Can anyone recommend a reader/app combo that works with iPhone or iPad? Is there even a CVT temp monitor that reads the actual temperature?
  7. Transmission and Driveline
    I have a 2015 FXT that I bought recently with 90K miles on it. Everything checked out on inspection. I added a Cobb Stage 1 OTS map and did Danoz fix to prevent boost leak, the vehicle has no other performance mods. I’m in AZ and I noticed the transmission would run hot up to about 230F on...
  8. Transmission and Driveline
    It makes me sick to my stomach to post this, but I think I may be having ANOTHER problem with a Subaru CVT. I traded in my 2016 Outback Limited with 73K miles that was showing all the signs of an impending CVT failure to buy this car, with the promise that the Subaru CVT challenges were...
  9. Transmission and Driveline
    My transmission is being fully replaced under warranty at a dealership. It sounded like a loud whirring or flapping that disappeared above 40km/h, but was loud at low speeds, especially when coming to a stop. Sound was wheel-speed-dependent, not RPM-dependent. Noise was present in D, N, and R...

    I'm new to all of this. Never posted in a forum before, never owned a subaru, and never tried modifying my car with aftermarket parts. With that being said, I'm pretty excited about it. I have a '17 2.5i premium with the cvt. No turbo and not the highest trim package. I still hope to take it...
  11. Dealer/Vendor Reviews
    I took my 2003 Forester into AndrewTech to have a wheel bearing replaced. Overall, I couldn't be more satisfied with their service. Over the phone, they were extremely helpful and responsive. Once I scheduled a time to bring the car in, it was fixed the same day. When they ran into issues with...
  12. Transmission and Driveline
    Today I went for a pretty long run. The temperature outside is around 30*C (86*F), and the trip was mostly 80-120 kmph (49-74 mph), speed wise. As a habit I mostly drive in S#. As the trip was coming to the end I stopped at a Stop Light, and when I started taking off the RPM would keep climbing...
  13. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    Hello, I own a 2014 XT Touring. I was hoping you could help me better understand a problem that has developed in it. This all started when I took my car into the dealership for a recall. Their inspection turned out a CVT pump cover leak. I allowed this repair, especially that Subaru of America...

    I was searching for the transmission oil pan drain plug gasket for my Forester XT - 15 and found this one: Part Number: 803916100 Gasket 16.3x22x1.0 Material: not sure Also, acording to some pictures on Internet, engine oil pan drain plug gasket is very similar to transmission plug gasket: Part...
  15. Offroad Fozzies
    I've looked pretty extensively online about how much a forester off road and done some research about the drive train with the goal of seeing how it stacks against 'more serious' 4wds, specifically those with central diff locking. I have heard that turning off VDC can be helpful in some slippery...
  16. Forester Shopping
    Hi! I'm considering a very clean, 1 owner 2014 Subaru Forester XT Touring with 75,000 miles on it. I'm wondering about the CVT transmission (and, any other suggested concerns). Would you consider an extended warranty? Any advice/warnings will be GREATLY appreciated! Thanks for looking.
  17. Transmission and Driveline
    Greetings, first post. And my first Subaru. I bought my Forester in May 2019 and like it a lot. Just recently hit 6k miles. However, immediately after having the first oil change completed at 6k miles a few weeks ago, I was driving home and noticed a couple of times that when accelerating...

    Last time I did a fluid change I used Valvoline's full synthetic CVT fluid. Cant say there are any side effects but I wonder what CVT fluid you guys use? Also where can I get myself some of the genuine Subaru CVTF?

    Hi All, Long time lurker here. I have 2016 2.5 NA with CVT with about 45,000km on it (28,000 miles) and I started noticing a strange beep noise when starting in the morning (cold engine) or stop/starting in traffic (warm engine). I have searched for similar symptoms in the net and suspect...
