Question about 1996 Subaru Legacy
The check engine light came on 2 months ago. Yesterday it started to "bind" when I turned the wheel backing out of my driveway and going aroudn the culdesac. The the AT oil temp light started to blink 16 times fast when I started the vehicle but then goes off after blinking 16 times. Any suggestions of what might be going on?
Duty solenoid that controls transfer clutches may be at fault,check the obvious first starting with level and condition of trans fluid if its ok make sure all tire sizes are correct and same,different tire sizes can cause binding in turns, all tires need to same circumfrence,if this is ok there is a empty fuse slot i believe in fuse box under the hood,place fuse in slot marked FWD,by putting a 15amp fuse in this slot it forces trans into front wheel drive a warning light on the dash will illuminate FWD,drive the car in your culdesac and hpefully binding wont occur signaling a problem with your transfer case either the clutches or that duty solenoid,the check engine lamp is probably not related to this concern good luck!
