Subaru 4EAT no forward gears

Post by Behemoth2008 on Sun Jul 21, 2013 11:45 pm

I fixed the idler pulley problem and got the car started cheers ... only to find out that the only gear that the tranny would shift to is reverse! Crying or Very sad  A quick google search provided me with information regarding delayed forward engagement with these transmissions and some quick fixes. I'm going to sell an extra downpipe thats been sitting in the garage tomorrow and go buy some fluids. New synthetic ATF and some TransX--People on the forums have had success with this in the past, so I'm gonna give it a shot before fussing with a tranny rebuild or sourcing a new 4eat. But, if anybody has one laying around in working condition, feel free to let me know!

What kind of ATF do you need? I have 3 quarts of Valvoline Dex/Merc you can have if you need it.

It says dex III, so I bet that would work. I can go take a look at it if you're home.

Heck yeah!!! And a bottle of TransX 75k mile stop leak treatment. Hopefully it lasts a long time! In the meantime, I'm still gonna look for a new tranny or a good shop to do a rebuild. One of these would be nice...http://www.levelten.com/Level_10_Subaru_Pts_Bulletproof_Transmission_p/sub-ja1800-15000p.htm haha only like 2000% more than what I paid for the car- and completely unwarranted in my case. Anyway, any recommendations in El Paso or Las Cruces?

Hell, might as well find a used one on Ebay or NASIOC for the price these local guys want. 4EAT's on ebay are around $500-$700. I think shipping is included.
