Problem with the transmission engaging in drive.

Car: Subaru, Outback, 2000     -    Back to Fix-It    -    Subaru Repair Manuals

Q.I have a 2000 Subaru Outback with 120000 miles. I have a problem with the transmission engaging in drive, once it is moving it seems to be fine, I had it put on the computer and they said the problem is the seal and apparently this seal is a design flaw in the older outbacks and because of the all wheel drive it is a very expensive repair and time consuming repair.
Does this seem Acurate and what is involved in the repair?

Answer This is a valid explanation and it is a very costly repair.
The transmission basically gets overhauled. We usually install a used transmission to help people with the costs. It is much less labor to install a used then it is to rebuild the one you have.
