Well I just finished a head gasket job on my 1998 Subaru Legacy Outback wagon...


I noticed that it is shifting a little high and rough and down shifting a little rough...


I am thinking that this has something to do with the second cable on the throttle body...  maybe it's not adjusted correctly?

The 2nd cable is for the cruise control.  When you pulled the engine did the torque converter come with it a little and leak some fluid?  Maybe you just need a little more fluid to top it off?
