2000 Forester

I'm noticing two annoying problems with the transmission. First, there seems to be about a two second lag when shifting from reverse to drive. And second, the downshift from 4th to third sometimes slams pretty hard.

I bought my 2000 Forester in non-running condition and put a motor in it, so I have no history on the trans. I did drain and fill the trans with Dexron III and changed the filter before I drove it for the first time.

Oops. I should have searched a little harder before posting. I see this one's been beaten to death.

Flushed it as recommended in countless other threads and filled it with brand name (Pennzoil) fluid. Problem solved.
