Subaru Transmission Repair Signs & Symptoms
Here are some clear indications that your Subaru transmission needs to be looked at:
- Burning smell: It could because by a number of issues, but if the burning smell is not coming from the tires, it might be your transmission!
- Noise: Your car should never make any loud or knocking sounds when idling.
- Gear slippage: Are you having a hard time shifting gears, or does it take longer to shift than normal?
- Leaking fluid: This is a huge indication that something is wrong with your vehicle!
- Check engine light: This may not be your transmission, but it is definitely a problem–especially accompanied by any of the above signs!
Subaru Transmission Failure
A common problem with Subaru transmissions is with the torque converter. The torque converter acts as the mediator between the automatic transmission and the engine. Signs for torque converter failure include:
- Difficulties shifting
- Inability to shift to highest gear
- Check engine light illumination
- Intermittent shifting
Failure of the torque converter could be the result of low or dirty transmission fluid, defective torque converter clutch solenoid valve, or electrical issues with the torque converter clutch solenoid valve circuit. Repairing a torque converter on a Subaru is not an easy job and should only be left to certified professionals that are experienced and confident with such work.
Another issue with Subaru transmission is failure with the all-wheel drive (AWD) system. The AWD systems with Subaru’s tend to fail because of problems with the transfer case. The vicious clutch drum tends to wear quickly causing stress on the entire system and solenoid failure is also very common. When you choose River City Transmissions for Subaru torque converter repair, viscous clutch drum repair, and/or solenoid repair you will get a 12 month, 12,000 mile warranty you can count on.
