Has anyone had their 'AT oil temp' light flash at them for about 5 seconds right after you started your vehicle? This also coincides with random slipping of the automatic transmission, not being able to shift typically into third gear and reving into the red if you let it (but the light and the slipping aren't always during the same driving period.) The slipping started first on the car. Now the I've noticed the light flashing.
I've went to a Subaru only mechanic and they can't find the problem or, of course, reproduce the slipping. But this was before the light started flashing.
Any suggestions?

I think maybe the light is trying to flash an error code?

Don't have an auto myself, so my experience is limited.

Thanks for the reply. Maybe if I take it to the mechanic now, they can possibly read an error code.

Search the web and you will find a procedure for retrieving the code without any hardware.

Good luck and keep up posted.
