We just had to replace the turn signal, alternator, and radiator. Now the transmission has died. Is this worth replacing? The car has about 120,000 miles on it. We've put in about 1500 and it'll cost another 1800. What else is left to go wrong?

I have a limited addition outback 2.5 4 cylinder. Is it a non interference engine?

My Headlight on switch doesn't sound an alarm if left on, and I forgot and left them on overnight. The problem is that both low beam bulbs have burned out. A friend and I tried switching relay fuses from high to low to see if any changes but no. Do you have any suggestions?

Please base this estimate on a rear engine cradle from a previously owned car not a new cradle. Thank you

My car broke down down on me and would not turn on after it shut down instantly. I checked out my battery alternator and starter also timing belt. I still don't know what is wrong with my car.

no fuses are blown, the air system is still connected, when you put the car under load it bogs like it's getting to little fuel, or to much air, the RPMS drop as soon as you throttle whether in neutral or in gear, it will loose RPMs so much it it will drop below idle and the car will stall and shut down.

gas smell is pretty strong. not exhaust fumes. im asuming when in motion the smell is being left behind cause of air and speed

Started as a belt squeal and quickly became a lot worse it's not tac unit and soudns like it's coming from the bottom pulley

Three years ago I bought a 2000 Subaru Outback with a 2003 engine and transmission. Last year we replaced the front passenger axle. This past weekend, the same axle failed, and after we replaced it, we're now hearing a rumbling what sounds like a transmission or drive train issue. When we replaced the axle this time, we had to use a lot of force to get it out. On a side note, I've been having to use the by pass button to get the car out of park, especially when it's cold. Does this sound like transmission to you??

I asked the repair place to check the brakes and that they were pulsating. They said that it was the inner tie rods and not the brakes and that I could drive it awhile and bring it in when I had my next oil change. I drove about 1000 miles, felt uncomfortable, and took it in. The inner tie rods were replaced, but the problem persisted. I took it back and they said the solution was to replace the rotors and front brakes. This car has 250,000 miles, has been well maintained. My question is by driving this car after I asked about the brakes, didn't I then destroy the rotors and seriously how difficult is it to mistake the tie rods and the brake repair as I asked each time for the brakes to be looked at. Was I misdiagnosed?


I am having the same exact problem with my '00 Outback. However I do not hear any backfiring.... it just feels like it is losing power when accelerating at lower speeds. Lurking, hesitation, weakness in being able to get up and go. Yes, the Check Engine light is also sputtering on and off. However the only thing this indicated when it was diagnosed was that it needed a new catalytic converter. Would a bad catalytic converter cause this issue... or would it be something else? In the colder months of the year... I have also smelled gas intermittently. Not a weak smell of gas... but a strong smell of gas... like you are sticking your nose in the tank when filling it.
