1999 Subaru Legacy 4 cyl All Wheel Drive Manual 150, 00 miles
Is there a way to trouble shoot the viscous connector without removing it? Could I try to turn the front driveline with a pipe wrench to see if it is really binding up. The rear driveline is not installed.
I got a used tranny for my 99 Legacy 2.2 AWD 5 speed from a guy that mistakenly sold me one out of an Outback for a 2.5. I was ignorant. When I got it in, the car would not turn to the L or R with out binding up. So he sold me a diff for a 2.5 and now it turns L and R fine, but will not go straight without noise and binding up. The car drives fine with on gravel, but not on hard surface.
So now the solution is to change the Viscous with the one out of my old tranny which seems to be in good condition. His story is that I must have ruined the viscous by driving without a matched tranny and diff.
have the same problem?
