What Does Your Subaru WRX Transmission Do?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. 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 WRX’s performance. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. 2016 Subaru WRX transmission problems can show up as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. Let Subaru WRX transmission problems linger and you might notice your fuel economy decrease or discover that your WRX’s not even driveable.

2016 Subaru WRX Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your Subaru's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use 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 WRX towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your WRX is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my WRX's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Subaru WRX’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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
  • Is it possible for transmission fluid to leak from my Subaru WRX? Over time, transmission fluid can leak from your Subaru WRX, potentially causing transmission problems. A transmission fluid leak may be caused by a damaged transmission pan, faulty transmission cooler lines, worn-out seals, a cracked transmission housing, or an overfilled transmission.
  • Who fixes Subaru WRX transmission leaks? When your WRX transmission is acting up, Firestone Complete Auto Care is here to help. Book an appointment today for transmission system diagnostics and repairs.
  • Is it okay to drive a WRX with a transmission fluid leak? You should avoid driving with a transmission fluid leak. Your transmission system relies on transmission fluid to operate properly, and a leak may decrease performance, cause your WRX to overheat, or even lead to transmission failure.
