98 Outback Trans Fup
My 98 Legacy Outback certainly doesn't owe me a thing. She (yes it's a she) has 263K on her and has just recently begun to show her age. 2 weeks ago the tranny started to slip one morning while pulling out of the driveway. It corrected itself after about a minute and was fine for the rest of the day. The same thing happened the next day. Last Friday it did the slip dance and was fine until I got to my destination, over 100 miles away... It lurched forward from a stop and began to make REALLY stupid sounds. It also stopped going into reverse. I immediately aborted the mission and limped back to base going 50 mph cauz it wouldn't go into 4th. So.... No reverse, no 4th, No low range.. it even wants to go forward in Park! No codes come through in the OBD, but then I don't have one for the tranny...
Any ideas?? (other than take the old girl out back and giver the 150gr HP Lead cure). If it were my 86' Dodge slant 6 I'd simply swap out with a junker it in a couple of hrs, but this looks like a devil to mess with! I can barely change out the plugs on her! Definitely a "she". Sheesh!
