92 Legacy Wagon Automatic Transmissions Problem HELP!

Recommended Posts

1992 Legacy L Wagon AWD 118000 mi

Yesterday, after I backed up (at a rather high rate of speed) I shifted back to drive, I was stuck in 3rd gear. It remains that way now, If I shift into 1, the car will barely move, shift into second, and I can get up to speed, but still, in third gear, no matter where I shift, or how fast I go, it stays in 3rd. fluid level is good, fluid not burnt. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Where you still moving pretty fast in reverse when you put it into drive?


It's possible the TCU is freaking out. You could try resetting it by pulling the EGI/TCU fuse for 20 minutes.


Other possibility is one of the accumulators got stuck or something broke.
