Not sure about the legacy, but the impreza has one. I imagine its is similar if its a 2.5L. It is located close to the fire wall on the passenger side of the car. Mine has a yellow handle.
Hope this helps.

My 1999 subaru legacy outback wont start. It has spark and fuel. It has low to no comperetion on 2 out of 4 cyliders. Whats the problem?

You may wan to check to make sure there is no oil in the water or water in the oil. Pull your dip stick out and see if the oil looks foamy white. Oil in water should be easy to spot. If you see these things it could be a cracked head or bad head gasket. How many miles are on the car it could be a timing issue ... your tiimg chain could be broke or wore.

e: subaru legacy transmission dipstick Transmission dip stick is behind the engine in front of driver side firewall. Move a few hoses out of the way, look down and you'll see it has a yellow top.
Other side (passenger) lower down yet, again move a few hoses aside, yellow top handle, you'll find the shorter differential dip stick.
In either case, if your gaze reaches the ground, you've gone too far.

I want to locate where the gear box oil goes in my vautomatic vitara 1996 model

Gear Box Oil refers to manual transmission normally. Goes in a 1/2 inch or so hole in the side of the box. You don't need to add unless it is leaking. Remove the plug and put your finger into the hole. If you get oil on your finger, it is full.

I'm not familiar with a 'vautomatic' ... if this is a type of automatic in the Suzuki (I am a Suzuki MC expert) you will find the dip stick in the engine compartment. There will actually be two dip sticks ... one for engine oil (black) and one for the trans (oil should be red or pink). If it is dark or smells burnt, have it replaced.

Where is dip stick for subaru legacy

Should be a yellow handle sticking up that says oil on it. I think you have 2 for the transmission, one for gear oil and one for transmission fluid. Hope this helps.

My check engine light is on as well., but the question i want to know is wht is the dip stick at the bottom close to the right cv axel?

That dip stick is for the gear box to let you know how much gear oil is in the gear box.This is not for the automatic trany fluid if it is an automatic.The standard trany will have the same stick just to let you know if there is enough gear lube.

Where is manual transmission oil dipstick on 1996 Subaru Legacy Wagon?

Have yet to see a dip stick for a manuel transmission. They normally have two plugs on the side of trans. One lower and one upper. The lower is for draining, and the upper for adding/checking fluid level. Due to the fact that you must get under car to check, yet still have on level ground to get accurate reading, would sugest you take to your normall sevice provider to have this done.
