1983 Subaru DL Transmission Service & Repairs

Why is Your 1983 DL’s Transmission So Important?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Because your transmission is responsible for converting the right amount of power into the right amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. They're often easy to notice. Subaru DL transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. If you don’t pay attention to Subaru DL transmission trouble you might notice your fuel economy decrease or discover that your DL’s not even driveable.

Questions About 1983 Subaru DL’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my Subaru's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Subaru tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. Defying your DL towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your DL is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my DL's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Subaru DL’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Subaru. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
