Re: Stereo project, something new!

Go figure, I just put a new deck in my Legacy, and bought the same unit for my WRX... Then see this thread.

Very interested in following this!
Also good to see another Ontario member.

Re: Power steering fluid change.

Thanks Josh. Seeing that that was the only process I could find doing a search on here (before I posted), I did that Saturday. It has helped so far, but still not 100 percent. So I will do another swap again this weekend. The stuff in there is definitely old. I will also have a look at the belts, as...

Re: Stop Light Indicator

I think that STOP LIGHT bulb is to tell you a brake light is out. So you should be able to just pull a brake light bulb out and step on the brake. That STOP LIGHT should then light up. I don't think I've ever seen it on any other time. I tried pulling a bulb but no light. Now that I look further, m...

Power steering fluid change.

Hey guys, Lately I've noticed my steering feels a bit tough. Car is a 1991 Legacy AWD auto 2.2L non turbo. This is when driving on a straight road, then a slight curve, when I turn it feels a tiny bit stiff for a second. Then it's fine. However, when going the other direction now, to straighten back...

Not worth the money.
I've only come across a set of 92's (not sure they fit 91's?), and they want $300 for them.
I'm in Canada, so our weak $ doesn't help.

Re: 1991 diffs and transmission fluid change

If the diff fluid was original, more than likely the trans fluid is original. I still think it'd be good to do a drain and fill on the ATF. But the first step is getting the dip stick out. Once it's nice again here I'll get it off and have a look at changing the ATF fluid as well. Car is still runn...

Re: 1991 diffs and transmission fluid change

I don't understand how just changing the front and rear diff fluid would have any affect unless maybe the old gear fluid was way too high a viscosity. How did the fluid look when you drained it? Do you know if the front and rear diffs are stock? The front will be open and the rear, even if it's a L...

Just to confirm you changed the front and rear diff fluid as well as the auto trans fluid? Only the front and rear diffs fluid.

Re: 1991 diffs and transmission fluid change

Changed both front and rear differentials today. I noticed before that the car didn't want to turn sharp turns, it would actually stop if I turned all the way to the left or right in a parking lot, trying to make a circle for example, or an 8 as suggested. Now, after swapping out the fluid, it has n...

Do the front diff and automatic transmission share the same fluid?

Re: 1991 diffs and transmission fluid change

Change the fluid. Your issue is likely the degraded fluid causing the friction plates for the rear drive to bind, which is what you're feeling. Changing the fluid should help this. That's great to hear. I found this thread: http://bbs.legacycentral.org/viewtopic.php?t=39331 So will follow the sugge...

Re: 1991 diffs and transmission fluid change

I have actually read your thread about a year ago. The main differences are I have no lights on, and it doesn't do any lurching after the car is off. The only similar symptom is the 'binding' on hard turns. This is the sound: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=do3YpKMphS4 I know you've seen this video ...

Hey guys, So, I have a 91 Legacy AWD 2.2 (non turbo) auto. As far as I know, neither diffs nor the transmission fluids have ever been changed. I'm a little leary doing this because of the age. I know on some old cars, they don't like having their fluids changed if it's never been done, and you get p...
