    NO POWER!? help

    ok i live in MN where yes its very cold. but i kno thats not whats causing my problem entirely... in basically all gears the rpms shoot up and i can only accelerate very slowly. Its like the crankshaft is rotating but the power wont go to the wheels. then when i get up to about 70mph it starts shaking. idk what it is or what to do.

    idk if certain wheels arent getting power or if that ever happens or what...

    i'll end up bringing it in im sure but if anyone could help me that would be great.

    If it is a 5 / 6 speed - Clutch

    If it is a 4EAT - Torque Converter

    +1 on the mods you're running. I'd say a $500 job perhaps?

    i havent brought my car in for fixing yet, is it worth bringing to the subaru dealer or would it be cheaper other places.

    i kno it depends on the area and the shop, but i was wondering what you guys have experienced...

    well it depends on your situation:
    Do you have a warrantee or the factory warrantee?
    Do you know of the local shop's (dealer of no) reputation?
    Ask around and see what the local tuners / Clubwrxers say about the shops in your area. That'll be your best bet...

    My car did this too...Soon as the weather changed to cold the clutch would slip and then when I would go about 65 70 it would feel like my wheels were wobbling.. And then one day it just stopped and never came back. Its weird cause it would do it one day and not the other day but finally it stopped doing it...
