Question about 2007 Subaru Impreza Outback Sport Wagon

1 Answer

My sub wagon 4 cl has transmission delay when I push on the gas

When i push on the gas I get a delay in acceleration, the rpm go up to 5-6 then it accelerates. Some times it's up to a 2 second delay which is very dangerous. I'm not a lead foot but when I go to pass at highway speed it sometimes shifts down to maybe 2nd gear. Seems out of control, it also shifts up and down at about 40 mph. I always have to play w/the gas. Hills are a major problem.

My dodge grand caravan today threw a 700 engine code transmission module, car wont go over 25 and only has powered acceleration for first 5 seconds car is on.


700 is a generic transmission code. It went to limp mode, that's why it drives like it does. Have the codes read with a newer /better code reader or a scanner. Find out what other codes are in there.

If your transmission is an automatic, it sounds like the torque converter is locked. It could be something as simple as a bad solenoid. You need to get it to a shop and have the computer scanned to see if the solenoids have triggered a trouble code. Also, check your transmission fluid while the engine is hot and running.

1987 Topaz, has trouble accelerating.


Most likely it is a transmission problem. Being that old the transmission needs work and possibly the clutch replaced or Throw-out bearing.

Two symptoms here Keith, and I just had this, same car year and model. The pedal could either be a bit loose, check the cable and throtle. Have someone check, when the cars in neutral,they manually rev it, and watch the RPM's. They should go 3-4 as normal. If this is the case, and its not the cable or pedal, REPLACE spark plug cables and wires. Odd, but that was the fix to mine. Hope it helps.

Reduced power below 4000 RPM


The main relay also controls the transmission and will cause an intermittent interruption of power and indicates its going bad. about a $60.00 replacement cost. the relay is located under left side of dash.
