  1. Longtime lurker, first time poster. I have a 1999 Subaru Outback 2.5 130K miles. For about 2 months, I have had the AT temp light flashing constantly at random times and not in any pattern (not on startup! maybe about an 20 min to hour into the drive). My wife, when I was out of town and trying to make less work for me, took it to the dealer and they did a $750 trans flush (!!!) where they 'removed the pan to check for shavings'. This didn't help the issue, btw. After I gathered myself and calmed down, I found the handshake procedure for reading the TCM codes. I got a 76. This told my I had a incomplete circuit in the Transfer clutch solenoid. I put the FWD fuse in there and no light on dash and we're still stuck in AWD. I hadn't really noticed binding in turns, but now that I am trying to get it to bind, I do feel some and it's definitely still got lots of grip. Sorry for the long post, here comes the questions... because I have a 76 code, this is a Phase II 4EAT trans (also have external filter). The Phase II 4EAT version2 (that is the only info I can find online) has this solenoid accessible in the trans pan but looks like it starts being used in 2002. I can only assume I have Phase II 4EAT verson#1? and the Solenoid is in the tail end of the trans? So I need to take off the tail end of the trans and access it there? Is 2500 miles driving locked up enough to damage the transfer clutch and should I plan on servicing that while I have it out? OR Is it an opportunity to 'upgrade' and find a newer and better trans (like from an 03 or 04) and if so, which best, coolest option should I look for that will work easily in my 1999? Thanks for any opinion you folks can provide and thanks for all the past help. T
