Question about Subaru Legacy

1 Answer

I have a 1995 Subaru Legacy L and it has a transmission oil leak from the back of the transmission housing, right where it connects to the rear drive shaft(?) if that's how you call the long turning rod connected to rear wheels. Can anybody let me know what it can be and also how much it will cost to fix realistically, doing just a minimum required. Thanks!

If it is only leaking from that rear seal going to the drive shaft from the transmission, it is simply a matter of dropping the shaft and pulling the seal with a large screwdriver and then carefully install the new one. The seal is less than $20. You have more time than money. If you need instructions on how to remove the drive shaft, email me at

you could try a stop leak for transmissions but if it comes out fast while driving it may be a really bad seal and stop leak may not work. Over 1,000 as motor must be pulled.

1995 subaru legacy, oil sprays everywhere from one of those hoses, not sure which one and it only comes out when car is turned on.

Hi there! Check the hoses from the transmission to the radiator. Over time they crack and will spray the oil while the engine is running.

'95 subaru legacy -where is my trans mission fluid dipstick?

is located in the passanger side of the engine. almost right above the universal joint that powers the tires/ it's on the BELL HOUSING if you open the hood and look close you will see a 2 inch curved handle/ it's verry small to see but if you take your time you will see it. the dipstic itself its about 4 inches long . you have to use a funnel and pour the fluid inthe dipstick hole.
