I just bought a 1999 Outback Legacy Wagon Limited off of my friend's girlfriend. (this is my first Subaru)
She used to have to fill with trans fluid pretty often. She (or my friend) had also put lucas trans treatment in. About a month ago, the car stopped moving its own power. You can still shift gears, but it free revs in any gear.
I had thought that I would have been able to get a used transmission already and have it swapped in, in maybe 2-3 days...
I have built countless engines, but only one transmission (from a 1994 GMC Sonoma 4 cyl.) Are these transmissions simple enough to rebuild with regular hand tools?
I WISH I could swap it to a manual while everything would be down, but I might have too much trouble sourcing all of the parts.
I now have about $263 into the vehicle, but will be ordering other parts.
I am wondering if I am just wasting time and money, or if this seems like something that could still live for a long enough time.
