Pretty much any "EJ" transmission will fit any "EJ" engine, the only problems are whether the clutch is a pull or push type release bearing? That will also make a difference how the clutch slave cylinder mounts up. If it isn't a turbo model trans, it will not take the HP that the engine puts out for very long. The Impreza STI manual trans will bolt up, but there will be some exhaust fitment issues where the down pipe bracket connects to the trans.
If the car worked properly before( I assume it did ) then any problem that has occured since the garage worked on the vehicle HAS to rectfied by the garage NO IF'S AND NO BUT'S.... if they dont then seek professional legal advice,,, it just seems a bit wierd that the problems are located in the very area in which the garage were working. MMMMmmmmmmm?????????
The most common cause is due to a proper tune up.Plugs,wires,gas filter,air filter and if all is well on that aspect of the engine I would change the EGR valve due to fuel mixture and advance control due to turbo.........Hope this helps you out.
Subaru makes/sells a good product. Too bad you've had issues with the clutch in/of your WRX. Since you have 25 years of experience driving manual transmission car(s) you should understand that the problem can not be pinpointed without taking the component apart. Your vehicle is under the manufacturer warranty so Subaru should repair/replace the defective clutch. After the WRX is fixored sell it and buy another VW......Peace
no it does not, the wrx has its throw out bearing attached to a shaft that needs to be removed before you seperate the trans from the engine. you will see a access plug on the drivers side just below the starter,remove the plug with a 10mm hex to gain access the shaft,install a 6 mm by 1.0 bolt into the threaed portion of the shaft and slide it out,the throw out bearing is attached to the pressure plate with a large cir clip, make sure the throw out and shaft are reinstalled on the trans before it is installed,when it is, push fork while standing in front of the car to attach the the throw out bearing to the pressure plate, good luck!
