1988 Subaru dl wagon transmission

I just bought this '88 subaru dl wagon with 198,000mi. I don't have any history on it nor am I familiar with the engine. What type of fluid should I use for the transmission?


It also makes a loud rubbing/grinding noise from the front end when you hit about 35 mph. The noise is in sync with the rotation of the tires. Any ideas? The transmission feels fine and it still makes the noise when you disengage the clutch. I was thinking CV joints or something. Any help would be great.

Well lucky for you there is a lemon law. Bring the car in for the state inspection, Request for them to be thorough, explain that you just bought it. The past owner is responsible for the repairs. If not, get reimbursed. I'm not sure what trani fluid it takes but call the dealer for that. The noise from the front end, the grinding could be anything, check the wheel bearings, steering components, rust on rotors, backing plates, and related items. The trany noise could be nothing or it could be clutch pedal linkage, throw-out bearing, pilot bearing, or clutch asembily. It would need to be inspected to see if anything applies.
