ok,

if a front wheel will not turn when off the ground, in gear,

the trans is probably crap.

(NOTE: make sure the FWD fuse is in place and the hand brake is on, when you do this test.)

 

if the wheel does turn,

 repeate the test on the other side.

one front wheel in the air.

 

if neither wheel will turn when it is in the air,

the trans is carp buy a used trans.

 

if one does and one does not,

check the axle on the ''does not '' side.

Thank you for the advise, where is that fuse located, engine compartment or left side kick plate? I forgot to mention that even in park the vehicle will roll like a gear is not connected, I just got a tranny from a 1999 Forester AWD do you think it will fit ?

It should bolt in but may have different final drive ratios. If the final drives are a match you're good to go. If not, you can make the trans work by swapping the rear differential from the impreza as well.

TZ102Z26AA

if this number is accurate,

the trans should be a match, ratio wise.

 

but this is the first time i have seen an impreza trans ID# like this.

based on this number this trans comes from a 2.5L impreza.

i'm not an impreza guy , so i'm not familiar with the 2.5L cars.

i have only studied the ej18s and the ej22s.

 

what car did the trans come from?

 

if the trans number above is not correct,

then i doubt the ratio will match.
