95 legacy awd with a slipping clutch


yes the problem is that the pressure plates is getting weak and doesnt keep enuf pressure on the clutch. ive replaced clutch sets on many diff vehicles and when they act like u decribe its usually the pressure plate. replace entire clutch kit and if u decent mechanically u should be able to do it. in a clutch kit they give u a diagram and directions. keep a very good note on what parts u took off where to ensure u put them back in the right place

Wheels making binding noises when turning


I have this same problem with my 1996 Subaru Legacy 2.2 Wagon. There is a Subaru Service Bulletin #16-62-97 dated 5/16/97 with a Subject entitled "Transfer Clutch Binding And/Or Bucking On Turns". There is also an important follow-up to it numbered 16-64-99 dated 09/15/99 entitled "Revised Transfer Clutch Assembly Replacement Procedures" that should also be used should you decide to go ahead with the transfer clutch replacement.

I just got these Service Bulletins from my mechanic who got them from a Subaru dealer.
The estimate was about $700-$1000 to fix. This is more than likely the cause of the binding problem on slow, sharp turns.

Second clutch slipping after only 60,000 mi. first got 121,000


SLACKEN the clutch cable. I had the same problem with my wife`s Legacy - as the clutch plate wears, the cable tightened up. It started to slip. When I asked the Subaru dealer to adjust it they TIGHTENED it even more, and said the clutch was slipping because worn out, and needed replacing. It took three minutes to slacken it off myself and the car has now done another 20,000 miles with no clutch problems. No wonder Subarus are now so rare in rural areas! The adjustment is right at the back of the engine in the middle under the firewall. You may need top adjust the "HillHolder" cable as well. DON`T PANIC! It`s easy AS

Tranmission slipping


too much fluid is like not enough however it would have to be over filled by a lot to have the slipping effect, i suggest a fluid and filter change transmission problems can be diagnosed by what materials appear in your panlots of clutch material would point to burnt clutches in my many years of rebuilding transmissions slipping symtoms usually indicate an overhaul is iminent. good luck

I have a 99 subaru legacy outback trans slip


cheak your fluid level in your transmission as if it is low it wont go into gear properly you will move it from park or neutral to a gear it can take a while before it will kick into gear if you top up the fluid that should fix the problem if it still does it after this take it to a tranmission specalist and have it serviced as the bands may be streched

My clutch is slipping on my 1993 toyota truck. Are there adjustments I can make myself. I am fairly handy, but not a car repair expert.


Sorry, there are no adjustments on your vehicle., The clutch is activated via hydraulic pressure. The master and slave cylinders are "self-adjusting". If the clutch is slipping, you are going to need to pull the trans and replace the clutch assembly. Changing the hydraulics will not help a slipping clutch at all.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for advice!

Clutch is slipping real bad on my 95 subaru legacy


the flywheel may be shiny and slippery. Also the clutch may be very worn down. You will probably need to replace the clutch.While you have to remove the throwout bearing. replace that too.
