  1. picked up a great '87 GL wagon with only about 30k miles on it last winter. engine was pretty clean, no real fluid leaks, was working great till a couple months ago. when i started her up cold, and just pulled away from the curb, she wouldn't shift into 2nd gear unless i let her warm up a little, and run through the gears a couple times while still parked. after that, she'd shift fine and the problem wouldn't happen again till she's parked and cold. this car's body is in pretty good shape, has manual locks and windows and runs great otherwise, sans some front end alignment that needs to be adjusted and i hope to drive her into the next century so really looking at getting to the bottom of this. seems like the trans fluid isn't circulating until it's warmer and thinner, possibly? gonna drain it and put in a new filter and new fluid, WHAT TYPE AND HOW MUCH, EXACTLY, do you use? maybe as treatment fluid of some kind can be added w/ the new fluid? heard a few different answers and suggestions, but can always count on the USMB for delivering the best advice. thanks, Glen.
  2. Hello I recently bought a 1985 GL Wagon 1.8 liter 5 speed. It has 120k miles on it. I know it has some good life left in it. The previous owner didn't keep it up very well. I don't have the service manual for this car. I decided to change the transmission fluid and the oil and filter, along with the starter distributer cap, plugs and wires. The guy at the auto parts store looked up the amount of fluids needed for the oil and transmission fluid. He stated that the transmission needed 7 quarts and the engine needed four quarts. After finishing all other projects. And filling the fluids up,... It definitely seems to be way too much in fluid amounts with the oil and tranny fluid. If anyone can give me the recommended amounts for tranny fluid and oil that would be great. The oil is easy I guess, just fill it up till it's right on the dipstick. By the way the tranny fluid looked really bad as well as the oil. Thank you, Chris
  3. I have a 2008 Subaru legacy limited 2.5L AT. I'm planning on draining the transmission fluid and adding new stuff http://www.amazon.com/SUBARU-AUTOMATIC-TRANSMISSION-FLUID-BOTTLE/dp/B00FA2AD5U/ref=sr_1_1?s=automotive&ie=UTF8&qid=1416421234&sr=1-1&keywords=subaru+atf What I can't figure out is how much Fluid I would need to buy in order to satisfy the tank. I can't find in the manual how much the capacity is or online at the current moment, it only tells me how to check the levels and what brads to buy, maybe I keep skipping over it, if so I apologize for wasting time with said question. I was wondering if anyone could tell me? Greatly Appreciated
