Questions About 1987 Subaru DL’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.
  • How much can I tow in a Subaru DL? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • 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.
