Question about 2003 Subaru Outback

Lift kit outback 2003.

Hi, i have just bought a second hand outback 2003. It is a great car but the only problem is all our usual holidays involve camping at beaches with friends who have 4wd. I was wondering if there was some kind of lift kit available for the 2003 outback to give the car more clearance off the ground so that we can join our friends on the beach instead of being a burdon on them?
Many thanks

How do i top up my auto transmission on audi a6 2006

The German manufacturers came up with a great new idea that many others have now copied and that is to eliminate the under bonnet filler tube and dip stick. Some of the German manufacturers have decided to eliminate engine oil dip sticks as well. These people are just so innovative.

Thus you have to use the correct filling procedure as laid down by the manufacturer which involves filling the auto transmission from under the vehicle by removing the filler plug on the side of the auto unit and pumping in the fluid. It used to be so much easier.
Obviously this is best done on a lift/hoist and the vehicle must be level.

Yellow oil symbol kept turning on

this could be due to low oil. you need to check your oil level. if it is full i would do an oil change with a bmw filter. there is a difference in filters. the service engine soon light will have to be diagnosed. meaning pull codes to point you in the right direction. great car though. happy holidays

2003 Subaru Outback 3.0 automatic transmission.

Hello, from your description it sounds like your front differential has, for lack of a better term, exploded! the grinding noise is the ring and pinion in the front differential trying to turn w/ the rest of the transmission but most or all of the gear teeth have been broken off. There are 3 sections of your transmission: the front section which is the front differential, the center section which is where all of your main clutch packs and planetary gear sets are, and the rear section which houses your tranfer clutches. Your front differential contains gear oil and the center and rear section contains auto trans fluid. You need to check your front diff fluid, this is the fluid that is most likely covering your undercarriage. Usually this concern can be repaired as long as the damage isn't to great, but to assess the damage the transmission must be removed and pulled apart. Here is a diagram of where to find your front diff dip stick.
The dip stick is located on the opposite side of where the transmission fluid dip stick is. It's yellow and you have to be standing on the passengers' side of the engine compartment, make sure the engine is cold so you won't get burned, not that you'd be driving it anyway. You must reach down just behind the bell housing on the side of the transmission itself and just lift straight up. I hope this info helps...(subytech1)...
