well, I guess i need to quit running around with a trailer attached to the pickup...another Subaru has followed me home...
This one is a 95 Legacy L, 2.2 with 205K, 4EAT with no reverse...
Starts fine, has a bit of a tick after starting - sounds kind of like lifter tick, but not sure - does this year still have the hydraulic lifters? or do they need to be adjusted? Oil level is good, altho pretty obviously overdue for a change - but the dipstick is heavily varnished making me think there has been a little abuse over the years. (my 90 has over 234K and the dipstick is nice & clean)
Moves forward fine, drove it up onto the trailer with no problem. But there is definitely no reverse - no amount of fiddling with the shifter will get it to go - back up lights come on when they should, but no movement. It did kind of try to move once, but that was it. Had to pull it off the trailer.
So it looks like it is going to need a tranny transplant.
Otherwise, the car seems to be in decent shape for its age/mileage - has the typical rear wheel well rust holes, and some rust on the roof where the front of the roof rack sits - gonna need to pull that off and fix that for sure. Drivers seat is pretty worn - outer bolster is completely broken down, but that is minor stuff. Got to get her moving in both directions under her own power first - lol
