Post Transmission question

This is just weird to me.....
I'm going to be changing my tranny fluid this week and my experience with other (American) cars have been that the Transmission filter would also be changed.
I've heard everyone here talk about the different fluids but no one about the filter. Does our Subie's have filters, or it's just not changed? I don't even see it in the owner's manual. Anyone???
Thanks for reading and replying...

Are you talking about Manual, or Automatic? The manual tranny doesn't have a filter, the automatic does.

Is it an actual filter or a magnet in the autotranny? I've noticed a magnetic pickup piece that Pat of Level 10 showed me that attracts metal particals floating in the tranny fluid. On older modelled Scoobies, I think they had an external tranny filter. A search will tell a lot about this.

He was supposed to send me pics he took of it but it never came to be. I have to give him a call.

Yep, it's a filter. I can get all the Hastings stuff through my Amsoil dealership. They show it as a Hastings p/n TF 135. Retail is $29.75. I don't know how much the Subaru filter would be, or a Fram. At least you can cross reference the number if you'd like. Here's a picture of it. <IMG SRC="http://albums.photopoint.com/j/View?u=1472522&a=11419616&p=40198801&Sequence=0" border=0>

It doesn't actually list that as the filter for the newer models(it's blank), so I would have to confirm whether or not it's still the same filter. It's apparently the only filter used for MY95 through MY99, for all Subaru applications. They don't have a filter listed for MY00, and my catalog doesn't go to MY01. It's used in selected models pre-95, with some others mixed in as well. If someone wants some specific model info, you can e-mail or pm me and I'll look it up.

Almost forgot. I know the earlier model SVX's had an external filter, which was added as a stop-gap measure. This was in addition to the regular internal filter (which is the TF 135). I don't know whether or not the other Subaru models had an external filter.

That's right, no filter. One less thing to worry about!

Hey Richeich,


I might have missed something in the post, or you just didn't type it, but doesn't that pic say the filter is for a FWD and not a AWD Manual?

just checking..

Yeah, I noticed that too. In that picture, it says FWD, but in the applications guide, it shows it for all the Subarus that I mentioned above, plus various older models. I'd chalk that up to a picture guide that maybe hasn't been updated in a while. I'll call Subaru and find out what the part number is for the trans filter for my wife's 96 Outback, and make sure it cross-references okay. I'll let you know.

Okay, for my wife's MY96 Outback, he gave me the part number that matched the Subaru one listed above as a cross reference. Retail at my local dealership is $52.73, and they don't stock it. I thought that the price difference was too big, so I doublechecked mine and figured out I had looked at the wrong filter in the price guide. I corrected it in the post above, but the Hastings retail is $29.75. Interestingly, he says they don't normally change those, they just clean them out when they service the transmission. So there you go!

Hope this helps-
Rich
