Questions About 1990 Subaru XT’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. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Subaru XT? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your XT towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • Does my XT's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Subaru XT transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Subaru's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
