Problem with the Subaru Outback 2008 diesel Low power at low RPM before turbo starts working. Difficult to drive the car on mountain roads where you have to shift from third to second gear, often the...


the turbo is a variable vane type
that means that there are vanes in the exhaust housing that redirects the exhaust gas flow onto the turbine blades to get extra boost at low rpms
those vanes are controlled by an actuator and vacuum hose from a sensor
the hoses get brittle from the heat and fails , the vanes can rust up and seize or the actuator doesn't get the message from the sensor
run the fault codes first , then take it to an accredited turbo professional shop for a proper diagnosis

My car is hesitating when I accelerate when I first start it after sitting idle. I have been told it is the 1,2 shift cylanoid. What is this, how much to repair, how serious, I have taken it in to the...


What is hesitating - the engine or the transmission?

When starting the car and putting it in gear, if the transmission shifts immediately into first gear and then shifts smoothly from first to second gear, I doubt its a transmission problem. However, if that isn't the case, you will probably need a new or rebuilt transmission ($1500+).

Engine hesitation can be due to a lot of things related to the fuel system that won't necessarily show up on a code reader - for example, dirty throttle body, fouled IAC (idle air control) motor, fouled EGR valve, etc.

Auto tranny slipping after shifting out of second


Firstly is it slow for reverse, reverse clutch also engages in 3rd gear however reverse has a boosted circuit (more psi) therefore will engage rev but not 3rd but it is a little slow for reverse.
They do have a tendancy to pop a ball out of the High and reverse clutch giving this symptom.

2000 jeep grand cherokee laredo hesitates in 2nd gear when cold


Is it manual or auto trans? If manual the gear lube is thicker when cold and the syncronizers tend to stick and not slide free for grind free shifting or for locking into gear.
If Auto trans if the jeep is warmed up setting then cycle the gears before driving. If that helps then the fluid is not getting through the valve body properly. It could be metal in the body or filter or cold seals are letting fluid by til the seals warm, expand and hold pressure. I'm assuming trans fluid is good, not old. One item that can lead to poor cold shift in an auto trans is a bad torque convertor. Since it seems to be a second gear issue the second section of the trans could have a bad seal. In an auto trans I'd take to a shop and have a cold pressure test done. They will tell which one is the problem.
