Outabck shifting problems..
Posted 18 January 2004 - 03:42 PM
I bought a used '97 outback with 75k miles on it, and I took it in to have all the stuff that I would have had done at 60k. I live in colorado, and I took it over the passes etc.. just after the tune up to head back to college. It ran great.
A day or so later I started it up to go to work, and it wouldn't shift out of first. I hadn't warmed it up like I usually do, but that should not be an excuse for it to not shift out of first. I stopped and let the engine warm up, and after that it shifted fine. I took it to the subaru dealer and had them put some transmission fluid in because it was low. This still did not cure the problem.
Any ideas? It almost seems like I have to get the engine warmer and warmer each time I drive before it will shift out of first.
Have you guys run into this problem? It only started happening after I took it in to have it serviced. Any ideas?
