What part of the world are you located and how many miles do you have on the Forester?

How long have you owned it in terms of miles?

Did you find any metal sheen and / or metal chunks when you changed the transmission fluid?

Have you checked the driveshaft?

Engine and Transmission mounts?

The heat shields for damage or being loose?

How is the clutch action?

How does the transmission behave when shifting?


My guess would be your differential is damaged somehow, but it is hard to know without being there. New to Subaru myself, I ,so far, understand that Subaru manual transmissions are robust, but they need proper routine maintenance to stay that way.

Shifts good except it began to not mesh going from 4th to 5th without the clutch...synchro issue or not use to it, just not enough driving by me. It is my GF's vehicle.

Sounds like your transmission is due for a overhaul. What exactly do you mean by, "... began to not mesh going from 4th to 5th without the clutch..."?
