I just bought my 04' FXT 4eat w/ 69K on it about 3 months ago. It was salvaged do to a rear end accident and repaired nicely. As far as I could tell from the original photos there was no drivetrain damage. I have put 3000 miles on it since. Super fun car as you all know. Yesterday during a long drive uphill in 100 degree heat the transmission started to slip and whine. There is significant loss of power and random rattling like noises. Check Engine light is on and Cruise control light is flashing too. Fluids look good although I did see bubbles in fluid on dip stick. The Forester is completely new to me as I just sold my old 93' turbo legacy because of a similar tranny issue. Going to the shop tomorrow but was hoping you guys could give me some idea what a new or used tranny would cost? Would a trans flush help or fix?
