Hey folks,

 

Mankato MN here.  I've got a 97 Legacy Wagon I'm tinkering with, will probably end up posting a lot looking for tech advice :)

 

Catch you in the forums,

BBF

Welcome! 97 Legacy is a great car. If you've got the 2.2 motor you've got one of the most reliable set ups that subaru ever made.

Yep, 2.2 AWD with a 4eat that is having issues...  thus the future technical questions :)

Welcome to USMB, BBF.  The 2.2 is a wonderful, reliable engine--just be aware that after the '96 model year it became an interference engine.  Be sure to keep up with scheduled timing belt/idler/water pump replacement.

Gotcha. Post up a description of what's going on in the "new gen" section and help/advice will be on the way.

 

I replaced the 4EAT in my wife's outback a couple years ago. It's a pretty simple transmission to work on, it's just HEAVY if you have to move it. Hopefully you wont have to learn that firsthand for a while.
