I have a 2003 Subaru Outback wagon. I changed the transmission fluid and now it will not go into gear. It acts like it is not pumping the fluid. Do you know of any solution to the problem?

Hi so all you have done is undone the drain plug and drained out the old oil, then filled up with new oil

when you put the new oil in did you check its filled to correct level and a take it your going on about auto gearbox. once you have filled it up you need to move the selector through each option such as park, 1 ,2 ,reverse etc work it through all options from top to bottom do this a couple of times whilst the engine is running and with the parking brake on, so you dont move any where stay stationary and work through all the options 2 or 3 times then switch it off and check the level and top up if needed.

then start the engine and see if it moves if it done move then you need to make sure the parking brake is working correctly so as you can engage drive and also double check you have not knocked any connectors under neath on the gearbox as one of these being loose or off could cause the problem you are having, unclip them then clip them back to make sure you have correct fitting and good connection

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

2003 Subaru outback h6 3.0. Starts fine, when I shift into reverse or drive I get a loud grinding noise


Is your 2003 Subaru Outback automatic or manual transmission?
If it is automatic, then your transmission sounds like it's malfunctioning into the reverse gear as it is not aligning properly.
If it is manual, then your transmission sounds like it may have a bad clutch or bad reverse gear.
Either solution is not cheap. Good luck.

2001 outback automatic stall.


When you changed the ****** fluid was it brown? If so I regret to inform you, you may need a new transmission. The brown color is due to the clutches in the trans, wearing down over time. Does it shift hard when you drive it? If it does that is another sign the trans has gone out the window.

My 2001 Subaru Outback doesn't show a transmission dipstick. The manual has a diagram but there's no dipstick there. It just started kicking between gears, 1. Where's the dipstick? 2. How many miles can I...


It just all depends on the fluid level. It probably needs changed around 50,000-60,000 miles. Sometimes, the dipstick is under the car. It is not an actual dipstick. It is much smaller but it is located on the side of the transmission. I would check down there to see if it is on the side.

For a 1999 Subaru Legacy does it have just the screw on transmission filter or is there also one in the pan?


I have a 99 Subaru Legacy Outback wagon also. I just changed my fluid & filters. There is a spin-on AND a bolt-in that's inside (you have to drop the pan).

Stop driving and check your transmission fluid right away. you probably have a leak or a blocked valve body. if the fluid is up what does it smell like? and what color is it? If it sticks like burnt toast or is a dark opaque colour then get it to a shop before you get stranded somewhere.
If the fluid is up and clear pink then just schedule an appointment to get the fluids and filter changed by a trans shop , not Mr. Lube. a real trans shop. Hope this helps

2000 Subaru Outback transmission problem


After a good deal of research and several shops suggesting a rebuild of the transmission, I decided to have the trans fluid and filters changed before doing anything. It was a tough call because it could have been a waste of $125. As soon as the spin off filter was removed you could see it was blocked. So the hydraulic pressure in the system was way down, still enough to engage reverse and enough to work all the shifts, but not enough to engage forward without a slight tap on the accelerator.

My Subaru has 240 000 km on it and I suppose the clutch pack rebuild wouldn't hurt, but as it is now it engages quickly and shifts up are noticeably smoother.

May not be the solution for every case, but it solved my situation.

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)...
