What is the transmission fluid capacity on a 2001 subaru forester?
Yes, it is definitely good to use transmission fluid in your Forester. I highly recommend it and use it in my 2000 with no problems.
I need Dexron III in my Subaru Forester, but I don't need any right now, thanks. Your owner's manual will tell you what to use in yours.
Listed in your owner's manual.
Just like changing engine oil only in a different location and with different oil.
I want to check the level of atf temp in my subaru forester 2010. On checking the transmission fluid level, after the car was driven about 10 km and was put in each gear and setting the select level in the "p", do i have to turn off the engine or idle the engine before i check the atf level?
Assuming that yours is the same as my 2000, and assuming that you are asking because you want to remove the drain plug, recycle whatever comes out, and refill with fresh fluid, the refill is about a gallon. This operation is recommended yearly to extend transmission life.
I believe that your 2006 is similar to my 2000 and 1996 models. When you drain the fluid via the drain plug on the driver's side of the transmission, refill is about 4 quarts. This is not the same as the total capacity of the transmission because you cannot drain the torque converter this way. Changing the fluid every year is the best way to extend the life of your transmission.
Of course not. To paraphease the old saying, the only thing you must do is pay taxes and die. --Ken
