      If anyone had any input I would welcome it greatly.
      I have a 02 forrester ls that seems to have (internet diagnosis) a bad 3-4 (not staying in 3rd, just pops out by itself) synco and main output bearing (bad rattle at higher speed).. The Transmission seems to be year specific and hard to source (ie 1500 or so w 100,000)..
      I wish I had the money to just get it done but the high end of the repair was in the 3 grand mark :sick: for a low milage out of state used tranny and the labor for pull and replace so here I am.

      1) do you have any tips about sourcing a replacement
      2) how year specific are subaru trannys (was told I could get a different year if the ratios match
      3) how do you feel about rebuild vs replace if price is similar ?

      I do not have the ability to replace this myself so I will be getting a shop to do it, is there anything that should be done as long as its all pulled apart (I will be making a list based on ericthecarguy and briansmobile videos, but I just might miss something) I do know I will be having the clutch properly replaced after a horrible job that was done locally with the only shop I could afford at the time.

      I really love this vehicle and I have had all necessary maintenance done including heads, timing belt brakes, battery, fluid changes (all of them) even no rust which is a small miracle for a 02 w 250k in Michigan. Anyways keep up the good work man, I’ll be watching !

        What I have read. Subaru used this transmission only one year.
        I don’t know about other fitments. Try to find one with a warranty
        from a salvage yard or a shop. I would replace rather than rebuild.
        Unless the person does these transmissions day in and day out. I would
        not go there. Its not that easy. hope this helps.
