U have an internal pressure leak in the transmission, they can test the fluid pressure at test ports on the tranmission, but a teardown and overhaul is what u will need in the end most likely

It really is redundant what anyone here would suggest. The probem is not something that is going to go away on its own and unless you have the tools to diagnose this, the shop that does it is who's going to make the recomendation on what they think is wrong. There not going to guarantee anything based on what we say.

Why is my AWD subaru only 2WD?


you will likely need to replace the following:
Duty C Solenoid
Transfer Clutch Pack
Reduction gear
All of these parts are located in the tail end of the 4EAT automatic transmissions. The reduction gear can separate from its hub and damage the above mentioned parts too.

Durango AWD


The vehicle is always in AWD and that cannot be altered . There is a 3rd diff in the gear box that allows independent operation of the front and rear wheels to prevent drive line wind up . When you select 4WD you lock up that 3rd diff so that both front and rear axles have to turn. This results in drive line torque wind up so the vehicle must not be driven in this mode on hard surfaces as there is no means for the wheels to slip and relieve the torque wind up . To loose the wind up reverse for several yards and any actuators that are trying to move will be able to or drive on slippery surfaces to allow the wheels to slip

Looking for the kind of fuse needed for a awd 1997 subaru lagacy. had the car towed this morning and the tow driver said my fuse that regulates the awd was blown???


There is a fuse box in the engine compartment on the passenger side labeled FWD and, under normal conditions, should be empty. The user manual indicates that a fuse can be installed in order to disable AWD. This should be done if you are using the spare tire, the car is to be towed w/o a flatbed and when the front and rear wheels aren't the same.
I imagine that the driver checked this fuse box and found it empty and told you the fuse was blown... does this sound about right?
With the fuse installed you will get a warning light on the dash (red FWD) to remind you that your rig is running in FWD mode...
This FWD fuse box is only present on AT models.
Why was the car towed and did they lift the front end or put it on a flat bed?
Cheers, immorion

Subaru impreza sport 1999 piston slap


Rebuilding the engine is the only true cure. Be sure that the engine warms up without driving it. In other words, don't put any excessive load on the engine while it is cold. Once it warms up, the piston, rings, pins, etc. will expand from the heat. This is why you only hear slapping when the engine is cold.

On a 09 Subaru Forester front flat tire do i need to put the tire from the back on the front and the spare on the back and pull the fuse for the awd?


it is usually the best way if you plan on driving on it for a while but if you are just going to repair shop to get new tire don't have to but yes disconnect awd.
