    need to know how and were to fill them

    Hi, fennkathleen. On my MY99 classic Impreza the gearbox oil and front diff are all encased as one complete unit. The drain plug is really obvious, its on the lowest flat part of the box, big old nut ya cant miss. However I cant comment on your particluar model (surely they're all the same?) but most Subaru dealers are very helpfull and should point you in the right direction. Note, be VERY carefull what oil you put in the 'box, it must be limited slip diff compatible!!!

I am confused - I have a simple query and logged on to your site as you offered free advice! Do you not offer the service as described on your website. I definitely don't need a team of experts to answer my very simple question.

Why do you think you need to change the rear differential oil? Of course that could be it. Try that first. Make sure you use the right oil.

Needing Gearbox code for Subaru Impreza


It should be: TY754VBAAA

It is located on the passanger side of the bellhousing. If you shine a torch down the left side of the motor at the back near the firewall where the gearbox meets the motor you shouls see a white sticker with the code on it.

Hope this helps.

Turbo 2ooo i think it might be some sort off bushes


juddering is UK english for shuddering in US english. The center bearing shouldn't move, i/e/ the shaft should rotate w/o side play in the bearing, but the rubber mounts for the bearing should be flexible. The needle bearings in the universal joints in the front to rear drive shaft can go bad, causing noise when accelerating and they're not changeable w/o special tools. Your problem also sounds like differential, which would mean that you need to change the gear oil in the rear differential. As the oil ages it stops working properly in the limited slip differential even if visually OK. Do the front differential at the same time, engine heat ages it even faster. The center diff is in the AT, so you would change the AT filter and fluid.
How to tell which problem you have... in a parking lot with dry pavement, stop the vehicle, turn the wheel hard right, accelerate a moment, and repeat hard left and centered. If its worse turning, than straight suspect the differential fluids first. If its the same turning or not and especially if its the same on wet or dry pavement and at slow and high speed then look into the propeller shaft first.

I bought a Subaru Impreza STI 2009 model .. What kind of the oil used in this car and is it Syntihtic oil?


i have an 05 sti. its the same motor as the 09. you definitley want to use a high quality full synthetic oil 5w-30. check the level often because it is normal for this car to burn a little oil do to the turbo. especially if you start making performance mods.

Impreza 2000 turbo uk model


Yes, there IS a known oiling problem:

Subaru TSB 02-103-07
Applicability: All Turbo Equipped Vehicles
Subject: Turbocharger Oil Supply Mesh Screen
http://store.forcedperformance.net/merchant2/graphics/subaru_oil/02-103-07.pdf

"... If clogged or restricted, it will reduce or cut off oil supply to the turbo, resulting in failure. ..."

Your turbo may be toast! ***ouch!***
I have found more info on 2004 - 2007 models, but may or may not be applicable to your 2000 Impreza. I am not familiar with the the UK model differences, but if yours has AVCS use your favorite internet search engine to search for "Subaru AVCS" or "Subaru TSB". Good luck!
