#42 of 48 Fluid coming from tansfer case
Jan 16, 2010 (7:30 pm)
I have a 95 outback and after a recent engine change the transmittion ( or transfer case ) started slipping and now there is fluid coming from the fill port of the transfer case and the transmittion is empty of fluid. There is a loud grinding noise when trying to drive but with the car on jack is dosent make the noise and seems to trun the wheels fine. What could it be. A bad transmittion, transfer case or torque converter?

Any comments / experience on the pros / cons of using synthetic fluids for front & rear diffentials?

I use synthetic 75w-90 in my Subaru(s), both front and rear differentials, and it makes for easy moving on cold mornings (0F and colder) compared to the stock fluid. I love it - the very first thing I do when I get a new Subaru is change out the differential fluid to synthetic.
Cons? Well, my '08 Outback, with its rear LSD, chattered a little when I spun the tires, but a little slip lock cleared that right up. I only drove it 300 miles (on dry pavement) before changing the fluid, so I am not sure if the chatter would have occurred with the OEM oil.

This just started happening to my car tonight!! Its very loud, and I cant seem to make it go away at all, check lots, think i found where the sound is coming from, i had my hood up and was rolling it verry slowing to discover where the sound was coming from, not too sure what it is but I can see it looking down from my engine (thanks to a new intake I just put it getting rid of the big air box.) and it had like an axle to a boot to a green cylinder to a box. Did you find out what it was?! Please need help!!!
