Shifting problems on my 2000 Subaru Legacy Wagon. 4th Gear slips out, won't hold in at all. 3rd grinds when I shift it into gear, but slides in w/o the noise if I let the car slow down for a couple seconds. Shops are talking about opening the transmission and replacing the forks, bearings, gaskets for 3rd and 4th gear. The last mechanic, subaru-trained, said since it was also making noise in 1st gear, it would be worth it to get a used transmission - repairs would be too expensive; we'd open it


I would buy a used Trans and fix the other one over time. That way you can take it apart and it might not take a lot of money to fix it. Then you can sell it or save it. Also you may look at the different trans to put in yours. Maybe a Legacy GT 6 sp ... 2000 Subaru Legacy

My 93 Wagoneer is 4WD all time. Pulled into town doing about 35mph and heard a loud knock. It would do it a few seconds after taking off from a stop and when It would try to shift.

2001 Kia Sephia automatic trans seems to be stuck in second gear, when manually shifted into first, starts off perfectly fine. When in drive, very sluggish on the take-off and does not shift out of the gear it's in (maybe second gear). Doesn't shift into high gear. At 65 mph, rpm is approx 4000. Changed filter and fluid, added slick 50, problem still exists. If it is a solenoid, how difficult is changing the solenoid?
