Nine months ago. I bought a used 1999 Subaru Forester to drive back and forth to work. I knew it would need some repairs given it's age and at the time had 123,000 miles. It now has 138,000. I've had the back right rear wheel bearings changed and the catyletic converter replaced along with a leaking head gasket. The transmission is now on the fritz. My garage told me the transmission was going bad when they had it to replace the catyletic converter. When I asked my garage when should I have it replaced, they said when it will no longer pull. They said the AT Oil Temp light was coming on but to ignore it because we already know the transmission is having problems. It's having trouble changing gears and shifting very hard and wanting to slip a bit going uphill. Should I really "wait" until it completely goes or go ahead and have it replaced? I don't want to cause other problems by ignoring this one until the transmission actually goes out. Was this good advice from my garage?
have the same problem?
