Question about 1997 Subaru Legacy

1997 subaru Legacy. I am replacing the Transmission filter. There is a tube that is blocking the filter from being removed. Is there any special method to remove the tube. I removed all the bolts that hold the tube in place but it still will not budge.

If you are sure you have removed all the bolts check again!! the tube is tensioned, take a screwdriver and gently prise it out either end a little at a time. when you refit it make sure it is all the way in both ends. any problems get back to me.

Is a rear diff from a 1997 subaru legacy wagen with a 2.2l inter changeable with a 1997 subaru legacy outback with a 2.5l ?


the only way you can do this is if you can identify the gear ratios from both cars with the transmission codes found on the strut tower plate.
see this list to check for matches, read it carefully its a ton of info

Can you switch a rear diff from a 1997 subaru legacy wagen with a 2.2l inter changeable with a 1997 subaru legacy outback with a 2.5l ?


the biggest draw back that you will have to check first is the ratio of the diffs you want to change. If they are not the same but will fit then you will destroy the 3rd diff in the transmission from excessive use.

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.

you probably have a blockage in the radiator cooling tubes, try flushing it with a commercial radiator flush, or replace the radiator-at 133,000 miles, it really doesn't owe you a thing.

Where do is the tranny fluid filler on my '99 Legacy Outback? Please don't tell me I have to pour 9.8 qts down the dipstick tube!


yes you do but if you only removed filter and fluid in the pan it should only be around 5 quarts. also make sure you use the right dipstick located on right side of the engine because there is one on the left side for the transfer case which takes gear lube. might want to purchase a transmission funnel makes it easier.

Hiya,

Here you go:
