SOURCE: Fuel Filter for a 2005 Subaru Outback

In 2005 Subaru moved the fuel filters to the fuel tank for both 4-cyl and 6-cyl cars. What is confusing is the statement in the owner's manual about replacement intervals; the statement actually only applies to 4-cyl cars. Even though the filter is mounted in the tank, this is still a replaceable element on 4-cyl, but not on 6-cyl. The 6-cyl filter element is part of the entire fuel pump assembly (a $300 assembly) and is not sold separately. Therefore the 6-cyl filter is intended to be a "lifetime" part, which really means it gets replaced when the fuel pump fails and the entire pump assembly is replaced.

Transmission is shifting hard in my 2004 pontiac grand am


It does have a dipstick can be hard to find though check behind the motor kind tucked under the fire wall the grinding sounds unrelated to the hard shifting since it happens when your in park and the only trans parts rootating at that time is the torque converter and input shaft that fact that its not constant kinda points me more toward the belt system either a bad tensioner, water pump, power steering pump, a/c compressor or clutch, or an idler pullley

The transmission shifts hard enough to chirp the tires when taking off from a start


It would help if you said it was manual or automatic.
Since it would be clutch and not transmission on a manual, then I must assume it is an automatic.
But even in an automatic, when you start out you are already in 1st gear, so it can not be anything to do with shifting.
Therefore I suspect you have a problem with the torque converter.
It could be locking up some how, either from a bad bearing or a lock up mechanism coming on too soon.
Sorry, but can't think of a way to test or fix it other than a tranny expert.
I believe tapping the brakes is supposed to unlock a locking torque converter, so you could try that. not hard enough to stop the vehicle, but just to see if it disengages.

Car shifts hard (up & down), especially shifting to reverse.


that delayed reaction may be the transmission slipping. with those many miles it could be the transmission going bad

2004 pt crusier shifting down hard is it transmission


Sounds like you have more than one problem there. best bet might be to stop in at autozone, or Pep Boys for a free trouble code scan, just to see if anything comes up, then get back with results. As far as the AC goes, can you see or hear your AC compressor kicking in when on AC mode?

Trans shifts very hard after 5 minutes of stop and go traffic


A reason for hard shifting could be a problem with many things with various degrees of seriousness. It could be your ATF( automatic transmission fluid) is low or broken down and old. This would cause the hardness and the reason for stop and go traffic effecting it. Another possibility is your transmission is just shot, and the timing gears inside are worn and not properly shifting at the correct RPM causing a **** during shifting.

Some possibilties, not all!
