I'm an owner of a Subaru forester 99 and my transmission got wrecked.


I'm wondering if a can replace it with a 01 trans N0. TZ1A4ZCEBA-3K  if my original one is TZ1A32C2AA-P8

it will be really helpful if you can reply
Thank in advance.

i think the 99 forester trans is more like the 98 forester or the 96 - 98 outback than the 00+ auto trans.


99 was a transistion year, forester got the new engine, phase 2, 00 - 03/4, but the old trans .

while outback got the new phase 2 auto trans, 00 - 03, and the ''old' engine 96 - 98.


so look for another trans. the ones from the late 90s may be a little cheaper any way.

you can use one from any 96 - 98 outback, GT or forester with a 2.5L engine. NO ej22 cars.

if your existing trans has a spin on external fluid filter then the oo+ trans should work. if it does not have the external spin on filter then the older, 96 - 98 trans will work.


check the driver side of the trans near the pan.
