Question about 1998 Subaru Forester

Open Question

I have a subaru SF5. It has developed a problem and it is shifting gears very roughly. It feels as if your foot is still on the accelerator while it is shifting. It is an automatic gearbox number TV1A2YB6AA-W4. Please help

hi there, needs to be the same number. computers need to match. tourque converters are different from 2.0/2.2 to the 2.5 engines. also shift points are different between models so needs to talk to the dash perfectly. hope this helps.

SOURCE: SUBARU AUTOMATIC GEAR BOX CAN NOT CHANGE IN DRIVE SHIFT

Check the transmission fluid level. If it is low, fill it. Otherwise, if you happen to have a Subaru Select Monitor or equivalent, then you can read the fault codes for the 4EAT transmission and it will tell you which internal solenoid valves are sticky. At that point you can either add a quart of stuff that says it solves transmission problems and hope for the best, disassemble the transmission and change the problem valves, swap the transmission for one that works, or take it to someone to have it repaired.

SOURCE: subaru impreza automatic transmission won t shift

Try replacing the transmission filter and the trannie fluid. Mine would only go in reverse, and now it drives pretty well. This year has a screw on filter. Hope this helps

Limited slip axles require in many cases the additive. It is ***** whale oil that is added to the required gear oil. Ck with Subaru is best. They sell it in the parts department and if capable you can add it yourself. or, have the dealer service your differential fluids. fluids

SOURCE: Automatic gearbox won't select drive or 3rd gear

Well in a auto gear box you have in the pan on g/box a filter and a forward oil pump and a reverse pump also a set of bands forward and a reverse plus a valve body assy which has a load of small pistons and springs and oil ways ,but by the sound of your problem is that the forward pump isent going through the body valve for some reason so its taking a short cut and bypassing 1,2,3, and trying to to top first.
So sorry to tell you that the answer to your problem is you have to go to a Auto Matic gearbox shop and they will have to fix it ORget a second hand box and fit it yourself.
Let me know how you go. are you on Skype Ron

Hesitation while accelerating


The automatic tranny relies on vacuum pressure from intake manifold to signal when to shift. As the engine RPM increases, there's a proportional increase in intake manifold vacuum pressure. When vacuum pressure reaches a certain point, that signals the tranny to shift up to the next gear. When this vacuum hose has a crack or loose connection, it sends the wrong signal as to when to shift because vacuum pressure is dropping as air enters through the leak source, which the tranny interprets as a need to shift down to a lower gear. Replace all the vacuum hoses and see if this solves the problem. Look at the tranny and identify any air hose connected to it. These are vacuum hoses that you should replace, which usually there's only 1 or two connected to the air intake manifold.

Find another Honda Dealer and tell them the trans doesnt shift right and it makes noise, go along with the tech on a test drive so he can feel and hear what your are feeling/ hearing.

sounds to me like shifting sensors are out of wack. unfortunate computer problems.double check fluid. can be a clutch assembly problem.make the service dept check this out. new car, right, shouldn't happen. don't take no for an answer. can lead to very expensive repairs.just because they don't want to do warrenty work dosent mean they dont have too. be persistant!

When a new customer takes delivery of there new car I always take them out for a demonstration of how "the new computer controlled fuzzy logic engine gearbox system" works.ergo without using the gas pedal put the car in drive and let it accelerate, all the way, on its own.then using 1/2 gas, same again and lastly full gas."now, when you drive it ,be as gentle as you can, to save gas and wear on the car ,you will notice the gears will change ,much lower down the rev range than a heavy footed driver will get.and vice versa.you will be amazed at how many customers
tell me that there mileage has got much better...
and yes your dealer is right if ther was a problem then d3 would come up.hope this gives you info needed.

Definitely something wrong within the transmission. Hondas have never been the smoothest shifting transmissions, especially with some miles on them. What you are experiencing is beyond that though. Get a second or third opinion from different dealers.

Im not real familiar with that particular car but it sounds like the line pressure is high for your shifts if you can feel them now. Load is generally input to the computer through the throttle position sensor. I would have the TPS thoroughly tested just as a place to start. Shift delay is not generally a good sign and usually points to internal wear. The fact that it hasnt thrown a code should be a clue as to what the problem is for someone really familiar with those transmissions. If I was you id try a different Hyundai dealer. If you are lucky you might find one with an intelligent ape employed.
(sorry not a fan of dealers) :)

I would leave it at the dealer until it meets your satisfaction. Also,don't take delivery of it ,until you drive it with the tech that worked on it,so he understands the issues.

some time when you bring the car to the dealer and it does not act up.
at the dealer, mechanic can only test drive your car a short time. remember, they work on commission so they can not spend a great deal of times to test any car unless it obvious.
you know some thing wrong with your car because you drive it daily.
what you should have done is make sure they keep record of your visit. you also need to keep all the paper work showing that they checked and found nothing.
try to bring your car to the dealer while it acts up so hopefully they can catch it.
as new cars now a day have so many electronics in them, so problems like yours are inevitable
