I just recently bought a 2003 forester 2.5X it's a great car interios is clean it will be a fun project to work on. The only problem is that it wont shift into 5th gear easily, the clutch was just replaced before I got it and I'm told that he didnt have this problem before, I'm thinking it might be a bad throw out bearing or the shifter linkage is worn out . I'm also thing the transmission might be bad it does have 250k miles on it. But all the other gears are smooth, except for reverse it's a bit sticky. Just need help from anyone I'm new to subarus and just need to know what to do .
