    Recently bought this vehicle and noticed ATF level was low. Added fluid through filler tube and experienced slow flow down the funnel then burping/spitting of fluid as the funnel empited. I pulled the AT vent line (easy after removing the air box) and confirmed the vent tube is not plugged...

    New 2019 forester automatic. Only 2 days since I got it. today noticed loud clicking noise when I shift from Drive to Park Its only audible if the windows are rolled down, which is why I did not notice it earlier. Is this normal.? have other forester owners noticed the same thing?

    Regarding the addition of an external transmission cooler to a 2019 Forester, I'm sure that many people just unplug one hose from the stock heat exchanger and barb it to a longer piece of 3/8" hose, then out to the radiator area & then back again with another hose. Has anyone used a steel...

    Hi all, this is my first post so I'll try to keep it concise! I'm really struggling to find what grade of transmission oil to buy before doing the service on my 2005 JDM Cross Sport. I've found a filter with part number: 38325AA032 which Google tells me is correct. It also says 75w90, Dex 3...

    I recently bought a 03 XS with a 4 speed automatic transmission and was looking into engine swapping it for an EJ255 and was wondering what transmission I would need in order to handle the power?

    Hello! First time poster here. I bought a 02 forester manual with 72k original miles on it. Knowing it had a couple problems I took it to a mechanic that specializes in Subarus. it clanks and kinda shakes you on tight hairpin turns at low speeds and has a slight whine coming from the...

    My forester begins to shake like I’m driving over a bumpy road for a few seconds when it shifts into 4th gear and then it goes away. It only happens with that gear and none of the others. Any idea what it could be?

    Will a automatic 2002 Subaru Impreza WRX transmission bolt into a 2009 Forrester? How interchangeable are Subaru
  10. Transmission and Driveline
    Hi All, Question upfront: what 5 speed manual transmissions will fit on an '02 Forester? Is there an actual fit problem with using a tranny with a different Final Drive Ratio? I just bought my first Subaru, a modified '02 Forester, and I didn't know what I was getting myself into. Among the...

    So a few months ago i was driving down the interstate and suddenly out of nowhere it sounded like i hit something. So I pulled over and didn’t see anything that i could have hit and no damage to the body. So i start to go again and it seemed like it was in a bind then it broke loose from the...

    Just replaced my pressure plate, friction disk, and throwout bearing. Got the kit from autozone. I put it all back together and the fork that the slave cylinder pushes (connects to the throwout bearing) has a lot of play in it. The clutch pedal drops to the floor and does not return. I tried...

    Hey, I recently purchased a 2011 Forester with the 5speed manual and 187k. I've put about 1100 miles and today I shift out of 4th into neutral to come to a stop, as I take the clutch out it feels like the gear is still engaged. I put the stick in and out of gear again and let the clutch out and...

    Let me start off by saying that I am by no means a car guy. I have basic car maintenance knowledge and this is my first car. So my problem starts back at the start of September when I noticed that my Forester had and inconsistent shift into third. Most times it would catch and hit hard when...

    Hello, I have been a regular reader of this forum since I bought my 2016 Forester 2.5i Limited. It has 80,000 miles on it and I just experienced my first issue since buying it at 76,000. I was driving on a 45 mph road and turned off onto an exit ramp and stopped at a red light. The vehicle...

    So my transmission was shifting a little harsh and first thing I tried is replacing the tranny fluid/oil, as I don't know what oil they put in after the rebuild. (Yes the tranny was rebuild exactly one year ago). I know some minor metal particles are to be expected. So it was shifting a little...

    Our beloved Fozz was getting some symptoms around 30k and we took it in to get looked at at the dealership and sure enough the CVT is out. Dealership said they will be covering it since it’s under warranty. Symptoms -noticeably slow acceleration, and then came a ticking sound when the car was in...

    Hi guys, I am super new here so I don’t know if this has come up before Long story short I had my car tuned a few months ago and now it vibrates as soon as boost hits. I know it is a CVT and they get pretty weak if running more than factory power But the thing is I had coilovers installed a...

    Hey guys! I have a 2001 Outback parts car that I ripped the longblock out off and put in my 2003 Foz due to a tensioner failure. But I was wondering if the transmission would work? I did check and found the final drive ratio is the same but the Outback trans uses female axles which I have with...

    I have a 2009 Forester with ~165,000 miles with an intermittent transmission problem (4EAT not CVT). After driving 5-10 minutes, there is a harsh bucking from the rear end - it sounds as if I went over a speed bump. It first happens as I come to a stoplight and the RPM drop to ~1k. As I move...
