One last question. I checked the service invoice from the dealer, and it lists a part known as "Trans Kit", cost was about 18.50 for the kit.
Does that sound like a standard description for the internal filter and gasket for the pan?
Thanks again. Thought I was so smart, picked up a copy of the Subaru Service manual before I put the car in for dealer service, so that I could see what needed to be replaced for a trans service. Looks like the manual did not cover that portion.
I can always call the dealer I guess to find out if the internal filter was replaced.
