  2. Transmission and Driveline
    Okay so I’ve got a 06 2.5 XT AT, and just the other day I parked at the store to pick up some items and when I came back out to leave, my car would not shift out of Park. I can press the brake and move the shifter like you normally would, however if you look at the dash the vehicle never leaves...

    JDM 2000 Forester st/b STI Automatic Hoping someone has run into something similar as we are at a loss. Picked up a Forester last year, lost 1st and 4th gear. It will skip right into 2nd when you start driving and won’t go past 3rd. We figured we might as well swap out the transmission as a...

    Whenever the engine is running there is a squeaking noise that sounds like something rubbing when it is spinning. Like an "e-e-e-e-e-e-e", and fairly high pitched. If I depress the clutch pedal this noise completely dissapears which suggested to me something relating to the clutch is rubbing on...

    Hi! Got an axle replaced, seals done and no more transmission leaks, except now I found another leak! I sprayed the underside with Brakekleen and let it sit, idled for 15 minutes and nothing. Come back in the morning and check again and there it is, a leak. 2 pea shaped black spots. I traced...
  6. Problems, Maintenance, and Warranty
    I have a 2008 Forester that has a pronounced whine while driving. It seems to change as the transmission shifts so I was wondering if it could be the differentials but wasn't sure what that would sound like exactly. I've checked the transmission fluid (it's an automatic) and everything is...

    Heyo! I've been battling this problem for about a month now - here's the story: When I bought it, it would smoke from the transaxle area, diff fluid was burning off the exhaust. I thought to myself okay, so I got it up on the lift at a friends place, changed the transmission and diff fluid...

    A while back my clutch started intermediately slipping with no smell, which was odd. Took it to a transmission shop, the clutch was unaligned and burnt, so I got it replaced. The next day the clutch starts slipping again, so i take it back and do some research. Next likely reason is the center...

    I disassembled the console to try and lube the badly rusty shifter cable, and was surprised to see that, below the shifter "box", I could see straight to the ground! Is that normal, or is something missing in my undercarriage? Also, if I buy a replacement cable and attempt the job myself, do I...

    I got the P2763 code as well as the P0700 code on my 2014 Subaru Forester Touring with Xdrive and 122k miles. Day 1 - 30 miles into the car. How serious is this? The dealer mentioned swapping out the clutch control module. I'm concerned its not just an electronic component. I saw some people had...

    Hi guys, I have a relatively old Forester and over the last couple months, I noticed that I'm losing grip, as well as getting stuck on the beach/sand whereas I don't usually have issues. Today, when I took it for a service - my mechanic said that the rear shaft got deattached and he does not...

    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...
  13. Transmission and Driveline
    Hello all, I found a list of parts I'd need for a swap. But I'd like some info on which manual transmissions I can use on my SG5 Forester (jdm). Are the wrx manual transmissions interchangeable with the foresters? Also if anyone can give an idea on which transmissions would work would be of...

    Hi all! Just was wondering if a 2007 forester automatic transmission will fit in a 2004 xt automatic?
  15. Transmission and Driveline
    I have a 99 Forester that I just replaced the transmission in. No shops in my town do transmission work, so I had a family friend replace it. It was the correct transmission and everything worked fine for the trip from his house to mine and then to the gas station. Now it’s kicking again when I...
  16. Transmission and Driveline
    I have a 2002 Subaru Forester that I just put a brand new engine in over 8 thousand miles ago. It has 228k on it. Since then it’s been a great car, besides the fact that the transmission acts up sometimes, and tonight it left me alongside the road. After going up a steep hill (55-60 MPH), and...

    Hi everyone! My name is Jordan and I’m new here with my recently purchased ‘08 Foz Sports XT 5spd. I was shopping for shift knobs when I came across these helpful specs on another forum! All this info was originally sourced from Chris M. at WC Lathe Werks. The link to the original forum can be...

    I'm probably jumping the gun but I always think ahead about what I want to do how I want prevent future headaches. What I want to know is if I want to utilize the stock trans cooler/heater with an aftermarket cooler in which orientation should I install the aftermarket cooler or should I bypass...

    Hello, I’ve seen a bunch of similar stuff to this but nothing quite the same. When driving my 01 5 speed, especially when shifting between 1-2 or 2-3, there is a large clunk if I let the clutch out too quick or don’t rev high enough. The clunk is quite loud and you can feel it in the pedal and...
