I have a 1997 Legacy 2WD. When I am doing like 100km/h on a steep road the transmission seems and sounds like it slips. Especially when driving behind a slow moving car and you slow down to let others pass before you overtake. When you add more gas so as to overtake fast enough the transmission sounds like it shifts into a lower gear the engine revs increase and then it slips back to the gear that was there before causing it to loose power and makes overtaking unsafe. The transmission number is TA102AWCAA-DB 368372.I have been looking for a used gearbox but no luck yet. Please help to fix or in getting another gearbox.

is this car an automatic transmission?
if it is then you will need to check the gear selector switch on the transmission. I have seen one that would not properly engage for the park/neutral and reverse switches to function but the car was still drivable.
I am assuming that this is an automatic transmission and it would indicate that that the transmission is not shifting into high gear. The normal rpm range at 100km should be 1800 -2200 rpm's. A visit to the transmission shop would be my recommendation.
First inpect the oil condition, pull the trans dipstick and see the oil colour and smell it as well. f it smells burning then you know there is quite a bit of wear and tear inside.
Second shot is to perform a transmission flush and replacing the filter inside the transmission as well.
If all these are unsuccessful then you are looking at a full rebuild of the transmission.
