    I have a hammering ,clicking noise in all forward gears. It is loudest on gentle acceleration.
    It lessens under hard acceleration. It disappears when I push in the clutch or shift into neutral and release the clutch at road speed. It is a 5 speed manual transmission. Any ideas?

      There is a fuse in the engine compartment, that if pulled, converts the car to front wheel drive. It's normally only used if you have a flat and need to use the space-saver spare tire. It should only be used on an emergency basis.You might want to check this fuse to see if it's gone bad. Good luck!

    Auto trans may have downshifting problems. At operating temp, car will now stall in gear under 5mph, OK over 10mph.
    Was wrongly checking "auto trans fluid level" at transaxle dipstick. Eventually car began exhibiting symptoms of trans fluid starvation (racing engine with little movement when cold & when driving through a long curve in road). Arranged free estimate at Aamco & ...

    When the car is with the check engine light on, with this code P0703, the transmission feels like it's being forced?
    The transmission feels like it's being forced when a gear is placed. Mainly the reverse gear.

    The car will start most of the time. Sometimes it won't start at all and we have to shove the automatic gear shift furth
    er into the park position. It seems to be a connection in the gear shift. Like it is not fully connecting. Where should I start?

    Will a 5 speed manual transmission from a 95 Subaru Legacy(2.2L) bolt into a 99 Outback witha 2.5L?
     
    • Spoon Sports

      i'd stick to the legacy / outback models. 2.5L car is preferred, 96 - 98 (some early 99). if you get a trans out of a 2.2L car, you will need the rear differential, (unless it just happens to be a 96 2.2L outback with the trans # TZ102Z2ABA.)

      these trans should fit:
      TZ102Z2ABA = 96 outback (2.2L)
      TZ102Z2ABA = 96 outback (2.5L)..... same trans.

      TZ102Z2CBA = 97 outback...................may need TCU
      TZ102Z2CAA = 97 legacy LSi...............may need TCU
      TZ102Z2CCA = 97 legacy GT...............may need TCU

      TZ102Z2DBA = 98 outback (early 99).....may need TCU
      TZ102Z2DCA = 98 legacy GT...............may need TCU


      TZ102ZABAA + 96 legacy (all 2.2L cars except outback)........will need rear diff, maybe TCU
      TZ102ZACAA + 97 legacy (2.2L)...........will need rear diff, maybe TCU
      TZ102ZACAA + 98 legacy (2.2L)...........will need rear diff, maybe TCU

      the 95 legacy 2.2L trans may work, but there were some other changes that took place that year so unless it was free, i'd stick with 96 - 98.
      TZ102ZAAAA + 95 legacy (2.2L)...........will need rear diff, probably TCU

      Thank you! Spoon Sports. I think though the transmission list you have provided is for the automatic transmissions. Do you have swap info for the manuals? In particular I want to swap in a 68-TY752V2DAA from a 99 Legacy GT into a 99 Legacy Outback 68-TY754VCACB. Do I need to use the differential from the GT also? Thank you, you Subaru guru!! Jeff

    Why does my car hesitate when I step on the gas?
    80,000 miles, well maintained. Spark plugs and wiring replaced. This sometimes happens after I stop. It occurs once in a while. Check engine list is not on.

    Driver side front wheel bearing,,,,,,changed original the new one lasted 1500 miles...did it three more times,
    all new bearing keep going bad??????

      Then you are doing something wrong with your install. You must know at this point that another person has to do the job. The bearings are being destroyed by something in your install process. What that is I have no idea.
    • Spoon Sports

      Thoroughly clean and carefully examine all of the associated parts. Make sure the bearing is not loose and is pressed all of the way into place and is a firm fit. Check the inner race hub for any evidence of the inner race turning on the hub.

      Other than those things - be sure to grease the bearing with the recommended lube and don't mix different types of grease - and the bearing should outlast the vehicle in the future.

      Have you had the tires aligned recently? if the tires are out of alignment, or if a brake is stuck on the front right, the car will pull to the right and wear out the wheel bearing faster.
      Also, if the CV Boot is torn, FIX IT RIGHT AWAY any dirt or grime that gets in there will QUICKLY wear out the CV joint.

    How to remove rear axle and drive axle
     
    • Nissan Technical Advisor
      First, raise and support the vehicle safely. Remove the tire and wheel assembly. Remove the dust cap. Straithen the locking washer edge. Remove the nut, lockwasher and washer. Remove the brake drum. Be sure not to drop the outer bearing. Remove the brake line bracket from the spindle housing. Loosen the bolts and remove the brake assembly. Suspend the assembly aside with wire.

      Note: the brake drum cannot be removed by hand, use remover tool or equivalent to remove the drum.

      Using floor jack, support the suspension under the lower control arm. Remove the strut-to-spindle bolts and nuts, remove the trailing link-to-spindle bolt and nut. Remove the spindle-to-lower arm bolt and nut. Remove spindle.

      To Install:
      Clean and inspect the spindle and spacer for damage for deformation. Replace as necessary. Attach the spindle housing to the lower arm and install the bolt and nut loosely at this time. Attach the trailing arm to the spindle and install the bolt nut loosely at this time. Install the strut to the spindle housing and install the bolts and nuts loosely at this time. Tighten the strut-to-spindle bolts and nuts to 72-87ft lbs, the trailing link-to-spindle bolt and nut to 43-58ft lbs and the spindle-to-lower arm bolt and nut to 59-69ft lbs. Install the remaining components in the reverse order of removal. Tigthen each component to specifications.

      Note: prior to installing the brake drum, make sure the spacer is stalled in the correct direction on the spindle.

      Install the wheel and tire, lower the vehicle and test drive.

    Can you interchange a 1995 subaru legacy manual transmission with a 1991 subaru legacy
     
    • yboy82

      The 1991 Subaru Legacy belongs to the First Generation and the 1995 Subaru Legacy belongs to the Second Generation. I don't think it can interchange.
