1999 Subaru Impreza Transmission Service

What’s the Importance of Your 1999 Impreza’s Transmission?

The transmission delivers power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive on your terms. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your Impreza’s performance. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. Subaru Impreza transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, the car shaking on the road, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. Let Subaru Impreza transmission problems linger and you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that your Impreza isn’t working at all.

Questions About 1999 Subaru Impreza’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my Subaru's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to 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. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Impreza’s towing capacity. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • How often does my Impreza transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1999 Impreza’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
