What Does Your Subaru XT Transmission Do?

It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. 1989 Subaru XT transmission problems can show up 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 XT transmission trouble you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your XT at all.
