Question about Subaru Legacy

1 Answer

MY 1998 SUBARU LEAGACY GT TURBO LIMITED TRANSMISSION LIGHT ON THE DASH WILL FLASH ABOUT 16 TIMES AND THEN STOP AND GO OUT. THE LIGHT ON DASH SAYS ON IT TRANSMISSION OIL TEMPARATURE. IN MY OWNERS MANUAL IT SAYS IF THE LIGHT FLASHES WHEN YOU START IT UP IT IS THE TRANSMISSION CONTROL SYSTEM AND NEEDS TO BE LOOKED AT MY A SUBARU SERVICE PERSON. CAN ANYONE TELL ME IF I CAN FIX THIS PROBLEM MYSELF. THE TRANSMISSION CHANGES GREAT BUT IF THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG I WOULD WANT TO GET IT CORRECTED BEFORE A MAJOR PROBLEM HAPPENS...

If the transmission temp lite is on u do need to have the dealer test the transmission control module, in most cases this light is triggered by a slipping transmission, to find out what the problem might be requires a trained factory transmission repair tech, a home mechanic just would not have the skills technical data or special tools required to work on this and diagnose it.

Is there anyone who has added turbo on a 1999 Subaru Legacy GT 2.5 liter?


I would do a Google search on this. If you add a turbo you must make many other changes to the engine management system, bigger capacity fuel injectors, hight capcity fuel pump, different cylinder head gaskets improvements to the transmission and so on. You can't just bolt it on.

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...


Hi,
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 @ ultimatesubaru.org/forum and http://bbs.legacycentral.org. 2 sites dedicated to Subarus.

Good luck,
Td

It is on the left side hard to spot. Look below the heater hoses. Good luck, take your time and have a great day.
