Guilty—have driven car app 75 miles. Just drained cvt , now what , don’t know how to contact v1rotate on Reddit to see how his car did with his drain procedure. Car had no strange noise or acted abnormal . I assume at this point I should fill cvt with fluid to correct level, drive maybe 5 miles and let cvt cycle thru all gears , drain and repeat 2 more times. Am open to comments Tks.Actually, I found this page on Reddit. Seems like even Subaru techs make this mistake as well, and the procedure is to flush the cvt 2x.

Sir- found on line diy. Install long tubing into fill port on x-mission with long funnel on top, disconnect oil cooler discharge hose from x-mission to oil cooler radiator. Will verify but should be lower hose,put bucket to catch oil. Open caps on 13 qts of oil placed next to funnel, start eng ,keep funnel full , when all 13 qts go thru x-mission stop eng. Check oil level.will do this 2 times.will use valvoline . Will drive couple miles between these 2 changes. So that basically will be 40 qts oil! Maybe an expensive lesson learned. Yes will service fwd differential before I drive. And to you Mike sooo true but then life would be boring. NOT thank you guys!Did you ever fill the gear oil? You may want to finish that first. A dry diff will cause issues also.
Try to find an independent Subaru specialist and ask about a complete cvt flush. It can be done through cvt oil cooler hoses.
Make sure they use the correct Cvtf fluid for your MY vehicle. Buy 12 quarts? Have it towed.
