    I am losing power in 5th gear usually happens around65mph. feels like transmission or clutch is about to drop.
    Doesn't happen all the time. Doesn't sound like the an engine problem. Wouldn't be suprised if it was a transmission issue. Not ruling out suspension or all wheel drive problem. Seems like a loose power in the front right wheel. Looking for something to go on ...

      Also seems more likely to happen when I am on an incline or going up a hill. Has happened in lower gears but not often. Thought I smelled transmission fluid after the cars starts to jerk and loose power. Not sure if it has something to do with the all-wheel drive or suspension.

      Don't know abot your Impreza, but my Outback's problem was the tie rod end. Once repaired, problem disappeared.

      I had the same troubles with my '99 Suby Legacy wagon. I have had a rough grinding when I turn sharp (like into a parking space). I had all the CV joints replaced ( which could possibly be the problem), but, for me, this did not solve the problem. I found, finally, that my problem was the AWD transfer case, which is part of the Subaru transmission.

    Squeaking sound
    The car makes a squeaking sound (intermittent) at speeds between 0-20mph. Initially I thought it was the brakes, but it makes the noise without the brakes applied. Any ideas?

    Why won't my car shift out of park? This ussually happens after the care has not been driven overnight.
    If you over ride the shift it will come out of park and into gear but otherwise you can't even push in the button to shift. Also the shifter will slide between gears once out of park without pusking in the button didn't think it was supposed to do this if it is ...

    How much would it cost to replace the clutch at a repair shop?
    • EG9 K20A3
      4/11/2012 EG9 K20A3
      To replace a clutch it will probably cost you around $140-$190. It really depends on what kind of car it is.

      Use " Find a Shop" tab above and make a couple of phone calls or use negotiator and they will do the calling for you.

    I have a 1992 automatic Subaru Legacy Wagon LS 4x4. When I first start the car and begin to push on the gas to speed up the engine will rev but the car will not speed up. If I let off the gas and press again it will work fine. It only does it when I am coming from ...

      Nice car chief. Thank God you dont own an automatic, its a waste of the Impreza's abilities.
      Try bleed the clutch system and grease the clutch slave cylinder ball area that meets the transmission fork.

      it basically slips as soon as you accelerate, the clutch is stiff and it doesn't feel like its engaging, coming to a stop it just took a dump.
    • Spoon Sports

      In my experience, a clutch slipping is a sign that you need to replace the clutch parts (pressure plate, clutch disc, throwout bearing).

      However, for the stiffness, it sounds to me as though you have dislodged the clutch arm of the ball pin inside the gearbox this means its not pushing your thrust bearing properly it can be put back in place by jacking the car up and pull the rubber back look inside the bell housing of the gearbox and you can see where it needs to be

      I will definitely give it a try and let you know, hopefully it's that simple. and the reservoir seems to be moving a lot more than it should when you press the clutch in, its basically a creaking noise.
