  2. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    Hello all, been searching the forums and can’t quite find anything like what I have going on. Just did the clutch on my 06 FXT and the shifter is Insanely stiff and feels like an arm workout just to shift from 1-2-3. Also 3 doesn’t feel like it wants to full engage. I had no problems with the...
  3. FORESTER - Luv it; Like it; tell us your story
    Bare with me as this story is long and doesn't begin anywhere near my adored FXT, but it is all relevant. Not only am I wanting to share my journey to my FXT, but it is cathartic to share a story about my father and me. In his younger days, my father participated in amateur racing, was a member...

    Hi all! I'm excited to have found my way over to the forum, I've had my '09 FXT (in Newport Blue Pearl) for around 3 months now. It was purchased by my father, he then passed away and I inherited the car. It was acquired in a stock XT configuration, 4-spd auto, with about 170k mi on it. Since...
  5. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    04 Forester XT 200k So I changed the battery and then started experiencing my driver front wheel and passenger rear wheel locking up. At first it was intermittent, but now it fully seized.

  6. Suspension and Handling
    Theres currently a good deal on Whiteline suspension parts in Aus atm so I'm going to buy a few bits and bobs. My 2004 FXT is mainly stock other than the Pedders rear springs/struts the previous owner had installed. This is what I'm looking at buying: Kings Lowered SG Forester Springs (lowers...
  7. What's My Foz Worth?
    Mileage: 169,800 at time of posting Why I am thinking about selling: want a new car and want to do less project work because I am getting much busier in my life. I put a TON of TLC into this. This is a Texas Foz, so, NO RUST. I have tried to keep the mods very low-key, closer to stock, and...
  8. My 2011 FXT Touring

    After selling my stage 3 STI swapped 2005 Forester XT to help fund and facilitate the move from Missoula, Montana, to Orlando, Florida, I spent a few months daily driving my wife's 2014 Outback 2.5i. Missing the boat on a few WRXs and STIs, getting priced out of manual FXTs, and disgust for the...

  10. Transmission and Driveline
    Hey guys, so im pretty stressed out at the moment. My 04 FXT 4EAT started having an issue that after driving arround for a while (30 mins or so) the car starts to abruptly brake stall and slam into gear when going from 1st Gear to 2nd and when down shifting from 2nd to first gear when coming to...
  11. Forester Shopping
    Hi, I currently have a Cayenne Red Pearl automatic 04 FXT and I’m considering upgrading to a 09-13 FXT. I don’t want to but at the same time I want something newer and rounder. The box look isn’t my cup of tea really anymore. So I’m looking for experiences and maybe a little help making the...
  12. Cooling Systems
    Few weeks ago I blew the lower radiator hose causing lots of coolant splashing all over the engine causing lots of smoke. I temporarily repaired the old hose waiting for a new one. However when driving, there's no overheating problem going higher speeds, but as soon as I go on lower speeds the...

  16. Brakes
    I have a 2007 XT Sports 4EAT with the Vehicle Dynamic Control. I have the spongy pedal feel that most everyone on here has so I'm trying to replace the master cylinder, add a brace, and stainless steel lines. The problem is I simply cannot find the correct master cylinder. I talked to a...

    Any thoughts? 2004 FXT 4eat with JDM EJ20x, won’t rev past around 3500 rpm in gear. Goes to redline in neutral and park. Fuel pressure is stuck at 20psi. Just changed the fuel filter, old one looked good. AFR is around 14 and goes all the way up to 18-21 while accelerating. Whole fuel system and...
  18. Motor Conversions
    So I'm thinking about turbocharging my 05 forester, and it looks like everything I see on this page and elsewhere is about the XT, which I think has a different engine than the other models. Does everything cross over as far as what I should do for a turbo?
