Actually,there is no transmission in a manual shift.There is a clutch and a gearbox.I am not sure when they started putting fluid in the clutch sections but the fluid is red,just like transmission.I am not sure what color the gearbox oil is though because I've never had to open one.So,what I would suggest is to call a Subaru dealer,to find out if there is or isn't clutch fluid,what color the gearbox fluid is,and depending on what the answers are,you can conclude what you are probably facing.As for repair,when I have questions I do not know the answer to,I ask the dealer,a couple shops,or whatever it takes.I have a reliable mechanic who is always willing to answer me.Someone will give you free advice because it helps to attract future business.I have done it for years.Your problem is a little tough to answer because I would need answers to the questions at the top.But you seem mechanically inclined enough to do it,so I answer more questions from people with your capability than with people who say blinker doesn't work.If I can't fix it,I at least give my best possible advice.With so many makes/models/systems...that's why the name,icantry.
Hope I got you pointed right.Good luck! Greg
P.S.It really is amazing that people with much more simple problems on like a 2 year old car don't even think to call a dealer.There is so much free advice out there.

    P.S.Clutches used to have no fluid.I have a 1995 and it has fluid so I don't know when they started.

Why wont my samurai transmission input shaft turn.


5 speed

is it still on the bench>????????
i rebuild many

1: the bearing in the front is bad.
2: the tranny is locked, bad shifter rail, detents
3: 4th gear is not a gear, it just locks themain shaft.
so if in 4th gear and input is jammed, that means
the cluster is jammed. if the cluster jams for any reason
it will be jammed in neutral. too, because the cluster always spins.
bottom counter shaft is called cluster. to old folks.

tell me , with the lid off tranny box.
did you test all gears, by moving the collars 1 by one.?????
each gear,? if not why not.????? never skip this step or fail big time.

then test all rail detents to make sure they all work(lid off)
and never allowing 2 gears selected at once (job1)????

then put in a new shifter sheet and try all gears on the garage floor,
all assembled!
then turn input by and and shift all gears on garage floor
i even use a huge drill motor to test tranny on floor, with tape on tip
of pilot shaft. and shift all gears,

this is all basics, , never just throw it together, do the tests.
as you go.

this one is close,

95 gmc sierra k1500 4x4 5spd manual noise


the leak is probably a separate issue from the noise. is the leak very bad? can you tell if it's engine oil or transmission lube/fluid? most likely the rear main bearing seal needs replacing. the noise is most likely the clutch release bearing. you should replace all components of the clutch assembly which include; clutch plate, pressure plate, release bearing and piolot bearing. also have the fly wheel resurfaced. while the trans is out, you can check the rear main seal and the trans input shaft seal and replace accordingly.

1984 transmission wines in all gears 5 spd trans am 305 engine. How can i get the wine to go away?


If this vehicle is an automatic ....the whinning your hearing is the bearing on the oil pump in the torque converter. Time for a new transmission.
If its a stick the noise may be the throw out bearing of the clutch. Time for a new clutch.
If it is a stick and your replacing the clutch have the pilot bearing and input shaft (of transmission) bearing replaced, and if the fly wheel doesn't have any meat on it replace it.

Transmission is leaking -- what are possible solutions? Leak is getting worse each week -- no slippage of gears. This is automatic w/overdrive.


clean the tranny bottom to determine whether fluid is coming from the gasket...if so you probably need you change the fluid and filter any way, you can replace that gasket then....make sure that it is tranny fluid, and not engine oil from an oil seal at the front of the tranny....if the leak is in the rear of the tranny replace the rear seal....good luck, hope this helps

The oil is leaking from the gear box of my automatic transmission


what box?? gear box are described as tranny, differential and steering box. if steering is leaking check the seals at input shaft or bottom replacement is nessary but can be done pretty easy and cheap too. if leaking from hose then you looking as a hydraulic hose like $80 or so..

Where is my transmission fluid go?


It sounds like you have a tranny leak. When fluid is low, you will have difficulty shifting or maintaining the gear while driving. As far as where the leak is coming from, it is hard to say just from the post, it would have to be seen to determine exactly where you are leaking from. One possibility is the seal where the input shaft goes into the transmission case. This would require the removal of the transmission in order to replace the seal.
