Questions About 1986 Subaru Brat’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Subaru? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Subaru? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your Brat towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • When should I have my Brat's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Subaru Brat transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Subaru, so check with your technician first. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
