Transmission Problem? Subaru 2005 Outback

I drive a Subaru 2005 Outback. Last week had it serviced at the dealership for the 90,000 mile service. It currently has 86,000 on it. Yesterday I was 5 blocks away from my home and it all of a sudden felt like I had a flat tire? I pulled over and NO flat tire? However, as soon as I put it into park, it began to roll back. The emergency brake had to stop it. I was able to drive it back to my home (5 blocks) without a problem. Could this problem be something besides my transmission?

SOURCE: 2000 Subaru Outback manual transmission rebuild

I would want to see that for myself, or get a second opinion. That really sounds suspicious since they claimed there was rust in a box that was mostly filled with oil. And I can't see any logic in paying a lot of money to fix a transmission that is working. Why don't you take it to another shop and ask them to change the transmission oil, and to save the old oil for you to look at. It would be even better to change the oil yourself. Don't tell the dealer what you are doing. The best thing would be to just pick up your car, as is. If it is a scam, they could put some stuff in the transmission if you give them time to do it. In fact, they may have already done that. I can't say it's a scam, but it sounds like it could be if you haven't done anything that would have broken off teeth in the transmission. And if teeth are broken off you should be able to hear it while accelerating at low speed in each gear.

My odometer is 110,000 that a subaru 2008 outback is that bad,i bought only last week



  • Not to bad. Outback is a good vehicle. With so many miles and it only being a 2008 I am inclined to think this was a highway traveled vehicle more than in town. This is good because highway miles is far better on a vehicle than in town miles. Some maintenance you need to either confirm has been done or inspected to see if it needs to be done. May also have some warranty with it to but warranties often do not cover preventative maintenance.
  1. Transmission flush - 20,000 miles
  2. Transmission Filter - 50,000 miles
  3. Radiator flush. - 30,000 miles
  4. Air filter. - As needed.
  5. Oil change. - 3 months or 3,000 miles - usually right away with new vehicle.
  6. Emissions clean. - 25,000 miles
  7. Brake inspection. Right away with new vehicle.
  8. Serpentine belt - 50,000 miles inspect often.
  9. Alignment check - Check is often free.
  10. Tires.

2000 subaru outback automatic shifts in reverse but wont go into drive set for 3 days mechanic said it started to work? 2nd time it did this this week. he thinks its electrical but gives no codes


This problem could only be diagnosed is by downloading he fault codes from the transmission control module (TCM) you need to go to your Subaru dealer. I have access to the codes, but you need to know what codes are grenerated by your transmission.

How often do you change a timing belt in a 1995 toyota corolla?


Provided the belt that is to be used is a high quality belt such as a Gates brand the belt can safely last for 80,000 to 90,000 miles before needing to be changed. As for the original belt usually for hondas it's 100,000 miles Toyotas about the same 100,000 to 110,000 miles, check with your local dealership's service department for you cars original belt Suzukis and kias are about 90,000 miles.

My 1997 Subaru Outback Legacy Limited started jerking when in Drive- between first and 2nd gears. I then started driving in 2nd / 3rd, then drive. When in traffic very long time, would not engage at all...


Sounds like the transmission has reached the end of service life. I have a 93 that did the same thing. It would drive until the transmission heated up then nothing, except for reverse. I had a TRW rebuild transmission installed and now my 93 Legacy has 500,000 miles. $2,200 to repair vs $25,000 to replace. The only thing you would miss is the new car smell for a few weeks. But you can keep $20,000 plus.

Does the 2000 subaru outback have a timing belt that needs to be changed and at what miliage intervals


It should if it is a 4 cylinder. And any good mechanic would suggest to replace the belt between 70,000 to 90,000 miles.

Can you tell me what should be done on a 90,000 mile servicing for a 2005 honda Accord. I am getting different quotes from different dealerships/facilities. Thank you!


You need to have the cam belt & water pump replaced at 110,000 miles not 90,000. You should have the transmission fluid changed, brakes & all hoses inspected. The coolant should be drained, thermostat replaced and fresh coolant installed. Of course the air & cabin filter should be replaced every 30,000 miles. The fuel filter is permanent and needs no replacing. Brake fluid should be changed unless you have already had this done. Serpentine belt replaced at 110,000 miles with the cam belt.

I am looking at buying a 200 Subaru Outback


Thats not many miles for a Subaru. The only thing that really ever seems to cause problems with Subaru motors is the Head gaskets. But, with proper maintanance they last a long time. If caught at first sign of trouble repair is not alot of money. I have 3 Subaru's with over 200000 on them and I will take them against anything. Maintance is the key to repair problems. Subaru parts are not expensive and easily available. It will probobly be another story of buying a Subaru and never buying another car other than that. Good luck and have a great day.
