I have a 2000 Subaru Legacy Outback GT, 4 cyl, 2.5 L with 151K miles. I just bought it used. I immediately had to replace both front and rear CV joints as well as the oil pan and oil pan gasket. Immediately upon driving the vehicle following the repair, the car began to vibrate and idle rough when in gear at a stop light. It is smooth when driving or when in P or N. In R or D it vibrates and is rough. Also when going up our gravel drive and have the gear in drive and not on the gas, it does not vibrate. Only when stopped for any reason and idling in gear. Could this be from a faulty repair or defective parts used? The timing on this happening seems odd since it was following the repair. It ran great before the repair. The vibration is significant and not something you would ever become accustomed to. What are your thoughts?
