2009 Subaru Legacy that won't shift out of park

Just ran into the same issue on my 2008 Civic.

First, try moving the steering wheel to the right and to the left. Try shifting.

If this doesn't work, there is a small rectangle that is cut, but not normally removed around your gear shift. Pull it out and push something in there to hit a button that allows you to shift into gear.

Good luck.

My b4 is driving like a normal car but turbos are not spinning and car missing and spluttering when put foot down what would be causeing turbos not working and how do i fix it thanks

you blew your turbo bearings plane and simple. what had happend was your were probably racing around in it on a Stock pressuer relief valve (blow-off valve in street terms) and your pressuer backed up into the turbo, therefore sending the trubo's bearings for a spin the wrong way, probably nocked a couple in to the fan of the turbo and messed some stuff up. Auto salvage yard. you have the 2.0 H4 which is a very common subaru engine, and just pull apart a legacy touring or outback edition and grab all the turbo essentials. also to prevent this from happening, buy a cheap aftermarket blow off vavle, you'll hear a small wistle when you shift gears (if its a standard/manual transmission) but if not then you won't hear a thing. but its normal for the wistle to happen, that is letting you know your blow off valve is allowing any backed up pressure to escape. And one last thing, AUTO START is a big help with turbo engines, you can park it, take the key out, get out of the car and the car will remain running for 10-15 minutes to allow any back pressure from the turbo to work it self out of the engine. Trust me i have a nissan 240sx with a hevily modified engine, and until someone pointed this out, i blew and bought 4 turbo's

My 1994 Subaru Legacy Touring (Turbo) Wagon is not shifting properly when taking off. It does not shift until 3500 rpm at 20 mph. The initial shift should be around 2000 rpm. All other gears seem...

The 1st>>2nd shift on the Subaru 4EAT automatic transmission can be more abrupt, but 3500 is too high.
Is there any delay when shifting from Park to Drive?
Does the Power light flash on startup? If it does, you can pull the codes by following these instructions.

This trans has 'bands' that can be adjusted. I'm not 100% sure they affect the 1st>2nd gear shift, but maybe they need adjusted.

Take a look @ and 2 sites dedicated to Subarus.

Good luck,

Standard transmission has trouble with first gear on an incline

Interesting problem. The gear shift is run by levers and rods, not cables. I suspect that there are problems with
a) the rear gearbox mount (e.g. broken); or.and
b) engine mounts (broken or loose)

that allows the engine/trans to move fwd/back, and this is affecting the gear shift linkage.

You should also check the clutch pedal freeplay.

I doubt there is ANY problem with the standard transmission.

I have a 99 subaru legacy outback trans slip

cheak your fluid level in your transmission as if it is low it wont go into gear properly you will move it from park or neutral to a gear it can take a while before it will kick into gear if you top up the fluid that should fix the problem if it still does it after this take it to a tranmission specalist and have it serviced as the bands may be streched
