When driving my Subaru outback 2002 the green power light will start flashing uncontrollably and does not stop. It comes on occasionally and goes away after turning the car off and on again. I topped up the transmission fluid after realizing that it was low. I have been experiencing loss of power at times and other times the car runs great seemed to run great after I topped up the fluid and thought that was the issue. Today the light came back on again on the highway. I have also been feeling some clunking while pressing the gas peddle and releasing the gas pedal. Which I don't recall being present when I first purchased the car around 2 months ago, after I topped up the fluid that seemed to help the clunky gas pedal a fair bit but occasionally it still occurs. I've noticed the steering becoming harder at times but most of the time it seems fine. I thought maybe a failing power steering pump or something like that or maybe that's an entirely different issue. Could the power light have something to do with power steering? or does it strictly refer to the transmission? The car has 170,000 km. Not a lot of info online about the blinking power light. Any info appreciated, Thanks.
So i have a 1998 Subaru conversion from gears to an forester version 6 automatic. I bought the car that way and it ran very well for 3 yrs. changed the head and block last weekend, used the same transmission - thought the converter did give a little problem to go in - the head of the shaft had widened a bit. anyways .. it's all fixed in, started ,, gone for a test run & the gear is stuck in 3. it's not changing. and the power light keeps blinking. need some help !
