Subaru Outback: CVTF

A: INSPECTION

Check for leakage of CVTF from transmission.

B: ADJUSTMENT

CAUTION:

1) Idle the engine to raise CVTF temperature to 35 - 45ºC (95 - 113ºF) on Subaru Select Monitor.

2) Operate the select lever in P → R → N → D and D → N → R → P to circulate CVTF with the engine idling.

3) With the engine running, lift up the vehicle and remove the filler plug.

CAUTION: Pay special attention to the following operations as the engine is at idle.

NOTE: CVTF is at the specified level when it is up to the filler plug hole lower section.

4) When there is no CVTF leakage from the transmission, add the specified fluid or equivalent up to the filler plug hole lower section.

CVT fluid: <Ref. to CVT-4, HYDRAULIC CONTROL AND LUBRICATION, SPECIFICATION, General Description.>

CAUTION: Note that when CVTF is added up to the lower section of filler plug while the transmission is in cold condition, overfilling of CVTF occurs, causing the oil to spill out.

6) Temporarily tighten the filler plug.

7) Idle the engine to raise CVTF temperature to 35 - 45ºC (95 - 113ºF) on Subaru Select Monitor.

8) Operate the select lever in P → R → N → D and D → N → R → P to circulate CVTF with the engine idling.

CAUTION: Pay special attention to the following operations as the engine is at idle.

9) Place the select lever in "P" range. Then lift up the vehicle with the engine at idle to adjust the CVTF level and check for leakage. <Ref. to CVT-37, ADJUSTMENT, CVTF.>

10) Replace with a new gasket, and attach the filler plug.
