i was coming home today, and all of a sudden i notice that my tranny is slipping when i go past 3000 RPM. i don't know what is going on. when i accelerate, the car moves until after 3000 rpm where it feels as if the torque converter is not locking up and the car is not pulling at all after this point. also, now, when i almost come to a complete stop, the tranny makes a clunk sound. does anyone know what is going on here?? please help..

If your lucky, it could just be a low fluid level. My tranny was slipping at 3000 rpms when a hose from my tranny cooler had a slow leak. After fixing the leak and refilling, the slipping went away.


I hope that's all it is...

yeah. . .if you're torque braking alot, then you're abusing the car.

if you're not, you should be under warranty and you still have no problem. :)

Wierd, mine was slipping a few months ago. I took it to Subaru and they checked i9t all out, changed the fluid and everythings been fine since. I also went from an SR55 turbo, to an SR40, and now have a VF34 (untill my built motor is done). I think mine was more the convertor though. It seemed to be "binding" up a little...a higher stall and some beffier parts will be added accordingly as well. Let me know if I can help.
