Subaru Outback Owners
I know this is a gun forum, but here's a car question for Subaru owners. I'm having a problem with a 2006 Subaru Outback with around 170,000 miles on it. Shifts fine on flat grades. Going up steeper grades, it's like the gas pedal cuts off at 40 mph. The vehicle slows to a crawl until I reach the top of the hill, then returns to normal. Downshifts itself (automatic transmission) until it creeps along at 5-10 mph. Only recent code is evap system which won't cause any problems, so I'm told. I've replaced oil pressure sensor, fuel pump and catalytic converter recently. Normally I get 200,000 plus miles out of an Outback before it gives up. Transmission fluid full and red. If I use sport mode to shift manually, I might get a little farther before the gas pedal acts dead. Does anyone have any ideas about this? I'm tired of the dealership making $1000. wrong guesses.
