Question about 1997 Subaru Legacy

Automatic Transmission 1997 Legacy

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.

This transmission requires overhaul, it is likely the only solution, second hand units are almost impossible to find.

Reverse lights don't work. replaced switch and checked fuse and bulbs 1997 subaru legacy


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 have 1998 passat when i do 100km the rpm goes above 3000 it feels like needs a gear pls let me know what might be the problem


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.

1996 Mitsubishi Challenger 2.8D Auto transmission flaring.


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.
