I'm not sure why no one attempeted to help me with this problem, but, it is no longer a problem. A month ago the transmission "blew up". I towed it to the Subaru dealer and they said, "yup, your transmission blew up" and you'll need a new one. The cost, $4,000. I said thanks, but no thanks and had it re-towed to AAMCO. The Subaru dealer charged me $80 for sitting in my car, starting it, putting it in gear, hearing the god awful noise that was coming from the transmission and telling me that the transmission was trashed. What a rip. Anyway, AAMOCO rebuilt it for $2,600. It now runs great AND I no longer have the problem where it stalled/ran rough when the engine was cold.
