Question about Subaru Impreza
I have a 97 Subaru Impreza. The other day, I was driving when my acceleration decreased and my rpms increased. Now, most of the time the car turns over but it's like it's in neutral even when the car is in drive: press down the gas and the engine revs, but the car doesn't go anywhere. I thought it might be a transmission issue? The car has transmission fluid and just had an oil change, as well as a new radiator/water pump/timing belt all put in.
If engine is revving and in drive and does'nt move must be a gearbox /drive train problem,is it a manual gearbox ? if it is then i'd say get the clutch changed as pressure plate failure would cause this type of sypmptom let me know how you get on

you need to check the clutch cable is not binding with gas pedal cable. you need to have some body to help you to look the operation at engine area. let me know if this help you

That's a hub bearing. Replace the one that's doing it. I'm assuming this 'roar' is coming from the front, NOT the rear.

Are your cooling fans working? that will definately be a problem if not working. if they are working shut car off and feel the radiator is it the same temp all over or is it hot in only top or one smaller area. if you do not have same temp feeling on all of radiator your radiator may be plugged.

Does your van have the V-Tec engine? If it does, you will have to take it to a dealer to get it fixed. What is happening is one or more of the solenoids under the valve cover is malfunctioning. The result is the surge in rpm's and the rough transition. You could try an indy mechanic but any mech worth his salt will tell you to take it to the dealer.
