Question about 1998 Subaru Legacy

1 Answer

I have a 1998 legacy outback with a manual 5 speed transmission and about 160K miles on it. The problem is it is stuck in 2nd gear. It happened when I pulling out of the parking lot at work and couldn?t shift to 3rd or back to 1st, the shifter will not move. We jacked up the car and if someone turns the tire I can shift in to all of the gears including neutral except it still in a gear 2nd most likely.

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.

Speedometer died on 98 Outback Legacy


if you know what you are looking for, it is the speedometer cable. if you have a mechanical odometer, then it is just the cable that is connected in your instrument panel and connected to your transmission.

if you can replace that cable then that would solve your problem.

if you have an electronic odometer , then you have to find your sending unit which is also located in your transmission. but it would be more complicated to test if it is defective.

tnx 4 using fixya,
