2000 Legacy Outback Transmission?
Posted 02 January 2010 - 05:00 PM
The other day he was going down the freeway and stepped on the gas to pass. The transmission down shifted into 3 he heard a clunk then the transmission stopped driving.
I took a look today:
- Fluid is full
- TC is still attached and spinning with the flex plate
- Shift Linkage is hooked up and all gears except neutral light on the dash (the lack of a neutral light is the only missing indication)
- Shifting into any gear has no effect on RPM and even at 3500 RPM there is no movement of the drive shaft.
Internal Failure of?
I suggested getting a low mileage used trans as it already has so many miles on it. What do you think?

no light flashing on start up?
did you try the FWD fuse just for kicks?
unplug the trans and see if it moves, that will tell you if it's likely mechanical or electrical in nature.
sounds like bad mojo though - but these trans should be really easy to find particularly in your neck of the woods.

I didn't try the FWD fuse, but I though of it after the fact.
Unplug one or both Transmission connectors?

Good used transmission time for sure.

good thing to check and not assume anything on such a huge job, but it sure sounds rather catastrophic.
