Question about 2001 Subaru Legacy

1 Answer

I just had my engine replaced by a mechanic and now it doesn't shift correctly. From a stop I press the gas and it feels like it's jerking into 2nd gear and then I have no power. Also when I'm on the highway and floor the pedal it won't change gears. Also the AT heat light is on and the check engine light as well. I'm taking it back but they say it's not their problem. I would like to have another opinion to fight them with. Thank you. Jeff

    I will do that. Thank you. There is no fluids leaking but I do get a funny smell after driving it for a while. Like burning oil or something.

    If the car was shifting fine before the motor swap than something obviously happened,have you looked underneath for tansmission fluid leaks?

Sounds like they didn't connect a linkage or wiring harness correctly. perhaps stop at autozone and have them scan the codes (it's free) before you go back to the repair shop.

Hello
The engine and transmission in this cars drivetrain are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s)

What you need to check is the transmission release bearing because if there is a clearance on the release bearing you will encounter this problem and also check the transmission oil.

Speeds of 60 or above my car feels wobbly.sometimes my throttle cable (?) gets stuck so my car will be at a stop but the engine is still accelerating and lately it's sounds kind of like it puttering w


normally your engine should not cause your car to wobble, however a misfire can cause this to happen, as far as your throttle cable, you need to replace it and check the transmission kick down cable (co located with throttle cable) replace if necessary. The jerking when shifting is probably due to incorrectly adjusted kick down cable, when adjusted correctly the transmission with shift smooth. Hope this helps, let me know
