Engine load effect on 5EAT


Recommended Posts

Just swapped LGTs for my first auto equipped Subaru ( yes by choice, young driver getting license ).


Trans shifted a bit weird and TC lockup was erratic. Made sure fluids were topped off and looked/smelled Ok.


Had a noisy PS pump when cold, decided to swap the notorious o-ring and check hoses. Suction line was quite hard and had visible signs of leakage so I snipped 15mm off the end as a temp fix.


PS way better but also noticed the trans "feels" a ton better including TC lockup. Assume the PS was sucking air all the time and putting a high(er) load on the engine. Is the 5EAT that sensitive to engine load?
