Question about 2000 Subaru Outback
The first clutch got 121000 mi, the second is slipping with only 60000, what's up?
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

If clutch is not being fully disengaged it wears as quick as not being fully engaged. Easy chk, If you can't sit at a light in gear and brake off, Note if you can push the clutch a little further to stop the rolling. Flat grd of course. Bad habits are subtle, like using the clutch pedal for a foot rest or holding the vehile with heavy break not realizing the clutch pressure is being let up.. Make sure you have free play on the top and don't tow any trains around. Just kidding on thr trains.I hear those Subarus are tough critters. Good luck.
