Question about Subaru Forester

Open Question

My forester 2000 Sturbo 175 hp developed two (related?) problems: 1 started hesitating from 2700 rpm onwards and 2 at kickdown no gear change and no power increase to speak of.. speed can be increased slowly to about 80mph (120 - 130km/h) car has been in subaru dealership only to find nothing wrong..?? looking on the blogs for carse with similar problems search pointed at a range of issues from poor quality fuel to turbo going bad.. (the latter has been checked and is OK..) to me it feels like there is a advance firing problem.. but what do I know? can anyone help, please?

SOURCE: Car hesitates when changing gears

Give it a transmission tune-up, Dexron III oil, Lucas for transmission and transmission filter. Check the fluid level, restart the computer go for a ride. Check the fluid level again and continue to drive, it'll get better when the computer sets. I suggest you change the air filter, engine oil and filter, fuel filter etc. Just give it a tune-up!

SOURCE: 2004 subaru forester, 99,000 miles. Check engine

Drop in to an Autozone, or Pep Boys, or similar big parts store & they will usually scan for codes free. This will hopefully eliminate all the guess work, or at least point everyone in right direction for better diagnosis. If not obvious from codes what the problem is, get back to us and we'll help you out.

When I do a kick down in a 00 XJ8 Sovereign. It seems to be hesitant and the same when you kick down when the S button is engaged. If you build up the speed gradually, then kick down it seems ok

700r4 transmission, my transmission is doing high rpm before shifting up from 1st gear, but with no slippage in any gear, rest of the upshifts are firm.BUT, on kickdown from 3 to 2.gear its going as i


I don't know if this will help,but i set my tranny up to shift hard like you are describing. Just by putting a clip on the kick down cable. The book talks about this, its cool if you like that sort of thing?

Is the wiring good going to the O2 sensors? Maybe just look the car over and see if you have any bad grounds. They can do weird things. Could be a bad ICU.

Spradic problem


Try to have the mechanic look for "downshift kickdown" service info. When you are driving and the cars computer senses a load that is beyond the limit of the present gear, the car will downshift into a lower gear to match the load.
The inbetween gear time is when the RPM rises because the gears want to change and the transmission has not caught up with the engine.
Some of this can be adjusted with the hydraulic pressure in the transmission. The torque converter supplies the pressure and the rebuilt trans needs to be matched with the torque converter.
Go back to the trans shop.

1 st gear ok 2nd gear loses power rpm goes high


Check engine light on?

Is it a manual or auto? Assuming its a manual, is there an ABS light on? If so or if you hace changed the brake pads recently or even had the tires off or rotated, there could be a problem in the brake pad sensor or abs wheel speed sensor.

Check with Porsche service (your closest dealer) for recalls or TSB (Technical Service Bulletins) related to your concern and check the cayman/boxster owners clubs for similar posts and resolutions.

Hope that helps.

Hard shift from 1st to 2nd, then 2nd to 3rd.


Dont think they changed it yet but the older chrysler units had a rod that went from the throttle linkage to the transmission (maybe a cable now)...If you lengthen the rod it will increase shift pressure and give you an earlier shift.

It could be a spark plug, plug wire, or a coil. Sometimes thay break down intermittently. If it needs a tuneup, that would be the first thing to do.
