#51 of 182 Transmission Sounds?
Jun 03, 2007 (1:49 pm)
I have a 2002 Forester L with 59K miles. Like many other I have the ubiquitous "lifter noise" during winter that the dealer says is normal. Last time that I brought it to Subaru there was also vibration noise (almost like when you play with a taut rubber band on a shoebox) during acceleration. I asked them to do AT service and afterwards they said its all fine (they also forgot to put the transmission dipstick back in). The sound is now louder. Anyone have ideas as to cause before I go back to the dealer for a couple of hundred dollar check up?

Hi again...I just posted the message about the used transmission for my car. The used one I've found is from a 2000 Forester (not a 2002), so would this fit a 1999 model?

I don't see why not.
1998 was the DOHC engine. 1999 and 2000 were both SOHC, so same drivetrain.
In fact I think the auto trans was the same for all those years. I'm not certain, though.

There were some differences. I would suggest looking for one of the same year as the TCU connections changed from year to year and it won't be a direct "plug and play" swap.

I have a forester that I have just changed the oil and filter on. I started the car up to let the oil circulate and then put it in reverse and the car did not go into gear, same with puttig it in drive. I know I changed the oil filter and am pretty sure I changed the oil, rather than the transmission fluid...although I could be wrong. The sump took 4 Litres of oil so I assume I emptied the sump, not the transmission fluid.
Can you tell me if there's something preventing the car going into gear. Note the car was going into gear before I changed the oil.

I wonder if you hit something on the park-brake interlock? You have to step on the brakes to get it out of Park, perhaps something in that mechanism broke?
