Question about 1997 Subaru Outback
We just got stuck in the snow, i got out and looked as my wife tried to move the car foward and noticed we dont have AWD, the only tire spinning in the snow is the front pass side tire, and there is no fuse in the awd fuse holder under the hood. so now what? we dont know how long its been like this, everything else seems fine....94,000 miles.2.5, automatic.
This transmission has a known fault with the awd section of the transmission, it is quite common to find the fuse out, because at somepoint in the life of the car an expensive repair was required and the owner did not want to do it, no fuse awd does not work end of problem. Put a fuse in, if the vehicle then judders on full lock in reverse or going forward, the fault is the awd solonoid block, depending on how long it was run in this condition, will depend on how much of a repair will be needed. Find a reliable transmission repiar shop and get a quote, not knowing were you are i cannot say with local prices how much it would cost. Hope this helps.
