  • Whatever the next checkpoint is on your adventure -- whether its getting your bike on the trail before sunrise or making it to the campground before dark -- CURT class 2 hitches let you Bring It with confidence. These receiver hitches are made to handle most light-duty towing applications and offer a custom fit for your vehicle. Typically used on full-size cars, crossovers, compact SUVs, minivans or even compact pickup trucks, a CURT class 2 trailer hitch complements the design of smaller vehicles. This particular class 2 hitch is made to be a custom hitch for certain years of the Subaru Legacy and Outback (to verify vehicle compatibility, see application info). It offers a weight carrying capacity of 3,500 lbs. GTW and 350 lbs. TW. Class 2 trailer hitches can typically be used to tow a variety of lightweight trailers, such as a small utility trailer, small fishing boat trailer or popup camper (NOTE: Never exceed the lowest weight capacity of any towing component). They are also perfect for adding cargo space to your vehicle with a bike rack or cargo carrier. This class 2 hitch features a 1-1/4" receiver tube to accept a ball mount shank or other hitch-mounted accessory. For safety, it is tested in accordance with SAE J684. A custom trailer hitch design requires extra care, and as such, CURT class 2 hitches are engineered using real vehicles and hands-on research. We use high-strength steel, robotic welding and rigorous testing to produce hitches that are built to fit your lifestyle. To ensure that each hitch will be a reliable extension of your vehicle, we also finish our hitches in a co-curing of liquid Bonderite and black powder coat, giving them long-lasting rust and wear resistance.

They make it easy to hitch up and Bring It, offering a vehicle-specific fit and the weight capacity to handle a variety of trailers.

Each custom class 3 hitch is made vehicle-specific. This particular model fits certain years of the Subaru Legacy and Outback (see application info to verify vehicle compatibility). It provides a weight carrying capacity of 4,000 lbs. GTW and 600 lbs. TW. CURT class 3 trailer hitches are typically used to tow utility trailers, boat trailers, campers, snowmobile or ATV haulers and more (NOTE: Never exceed the lowest-rated towing component). Each class 3 hitch has a 2" receiver tube and is tested in accordance with SAE J684 for safety. To ensure that CURT class 3 receiver hitches have what it takes for serious trailering, they are designed using a hands-on approach and are constructed with high-strength steel and precise welding. We also protect our class 3 hitches in a co-cured finish of liquid Bonderite and black powder coat for superior resistance to rust, chipping and UV damage. Plus, to give you the confidence to Bring It no matter what your next task is, all class 3 hitches are backed by a limited lifetime warranty.

Input shaft o-ring wrong size and now I have trouble Subaru Outback

Question From Lverano on Input shaft o-ring wrong size and now I have trouble Subaru Outback

I believe I installed wrong size o-ring in the groove of my Subaru Outback transmission input shaft. The o-ring was a little big and did not fit snug. I drove the car for a while with no problems at all, then all of a sudden all gears except 1st and second went bye bye. I didn't realize such a little o-ring would create such problems. How is this possible? What does that little o-ring actually do?

Hello,
Question, do you have reverse? Also, what was done to the trans?

Response From Lverano

I had the motor out cause I did a motor swap. The transmission was good. I replaced the o-ring while the motor was out. Yes, I have reverse. Thanks for the reply.

Response From gsferraro

Ok, when this shifts to 3rd, does it rev up like its in neutral or does the trans just stay in 2nd? The o ring on the input shaft is used for torque converter clutch application. Are there any codes present for the trans? How long did you drive this car for before issues with the trans?

Response From Lverano

It revs like it's in neutral in 3rd gear or higher. You can drive it really slow, but as soon as you try to go above 25 or 30mph it just revs. I drove it home with the automatic shifter in 2nd gear. The car drove perfect for about 20 miles. I stopped at a light and it stalled out. When I started it back up all gears except 1 and 2 (and reverse) were missing when I took off. I didn't check the code. Check engine light went off. I can say for sure the o-ring on the input shaft was very loose and not tight fitting when I installed it. Out of that 20 mile drive, most of it was in the city at slow speeds.

Response From gsferraro

This possibly could be caused by a few issues. I will explain how this trans works. First, this unit called the 4EAT, has the same design as a nissan pathfinder(say a 2002 model year), inside the trans pump there is whats called a pump slide and a pump slide actuator. The pump slide moves to increase pump pressure when it goes into the higher gears or when higher pressure is called for. The pump slide actuator is constanly moving back and fourth, by doing this it develops burrs and sticks in the low pressure positon causing the high clutch to burn out due to lack of pressure to keep the clutch applied.

Now im not sure if a subaru has this, but another issue that can cause what your feeling is a stuck WOT(wide open throttle)switch. A stuck WOT switch will cause the solenoid to become energized before the 2-3 shift takes place causing a cut-loose or over-speed on the 2-3 shift. Pull the dipstick out and see if the fluid smells burnt. Gary

Response From Lverano

not sure what any of that has to do with an o-ring, is what you are saying a result of the o-ring being the wrong size? The transmission was perfect prior to installing the wrong size input shaft o-ring. It's as simple as that. If there is fluid blowing past the o-ring when it should not be, then what happens? That's my question. Thanks for your help.

Response From gsferraro

The o ring is for torque converter clutch application or the lock-up function the transmission has. Lock-up is when the transmission locks to engine rotation and you would get around a 200 rpm drop, with the o-ring not there or broken the converter cannot lock-up. Almost every automatic transmission that has the lock-up function takes an o-ring on the input shaft, with the o-ring left out trans cannot lock-up. Lock-up comes in around 45mph, with the function not working, the trans will produce a trouble code and run hotter than normal.

Response From Lverano

Does this somehow contribute or translate to no gears like I've described? Is that possible? Thanks, Lester.

Response From Discretesignals

I'd say if you installed the incorrect o ring, you should take it back apart and install the correct o ring. Then see how it operates. If it works fine after that, you'll know your answer. Either way it should have the correct o ring installed for proper TCC operation.

Response From gsferraro

If it feels like it goes into neutral when shifting to 3rd gear, i would think you have a 3rd clutch problem, the o-ring seals the torque converter circuit does not seal the 3rd clutch circuit.

I'm just going to replace the o-ring. I know I seated the torque converter correctly. I know the shaft I pulled out at one point, and then slid it back in all the way by hand until I couldn't turn it by hand. I don't know if that had to be finessed a certain way similar to how the torque is seated. I'm very fresh and new to learning about transmissions. Appreciate the help. I'm sure this forum will come in handy for someone.

Can you please let us know how it goes

You've had Gary's attention on this to check and do things all along. You know you screwed up and blew this transmission already don't you?

Response From Lverano Top Rated Answer

Yes, T, but not 100%. Maybe like 70% sure, but so hoping that everything was ok that it came down to being only like 20% thinking things were
Screwed.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

OK - Bummer. Wait for Gary to see if you can get out of this or another core at least needed? I know about what you did to smash it just haven't done that.
Please don't use properly spelled "bad" words. I changed it so something more PG rated.


Family friendly site please no matter how frustrated we can get,

Response From Lverano

nah, it's over for the Subie. I promised no more money was going in it. It's got rust, and that's the only reason i'm not searching out a used VDC transmission on ebay right now and moving forward. I am confident I could definitely do it, but it's just not worth it. I'm going to find a better donor car that needs, or will be needing a good engine. The JDM I have is ready and waiting when needed.

I'm not frustrated. I'm satisfied. I pretty much taught myself how to completely swap an engine, and besides destroying my transmission, which I would not do again, I did everything perfectly on my first try. I learned a heck of a lot. The car is a 2001 with 176,000 miles. The transmission could have gone a lot longer, but screwing it was the price of admission for a semester in 101 mechanics, school of hard knocks style.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Glad you've made up you mind on the car as a whole anyway and sorry a lesson learned had to be such a critical one.


Good luck with your next car and project,


T

Response From Lverano

Well ironically the O-ring was absolutely fine, and as a matter fact it did just what I thought it would do, it got compressed and it ended up sitting beautifully inside the groove on the input shaft.

Unfortunately early in the process of removing my engine, which was the first time I've ever removed an engine, I forgot to unbolt the torque converter. So as it happened about a year ago at the beginning of this project, I was pulling the engine for the first time. I ended up dropping the weight of the engine on the end of the input shaft accidentally, while the torque converter was still bolted to the flexplate. I thought I might've caused some damage, but I ended up convincing myself I got away with it.

I'll try to add a picture of the carnage. So what happened is the metal casing inside of the transmission got cracked. This explains why my car was driving so great initially on my test drive, it was initially just a crack, but ultimately the crack spread until the shaft casing snapped clean off and the rest is history.

I'm not really sure what part is cracked. it looks like a different kind of metal. I also wouldn't be surprised if all the damage was from when I bolted the engine to the transmission bell housing without having the torque converter fully seated, which is a well know way to crack the oil pump/ oil pump body/housing.

Response From Lverano

Did a cold start today and no gears at all.... I'm beginning to wonder what an o-ring is really gonna do for that....

Response From Lverano

Can you please let us know how it goes

Yes. It might be a week or more. I May post a test drive YouTube video or something. Keep me posted.

Response From Lverano

Yep that mission will be started in the upcoming week. (Replacing o-ring)

Headlight problem 2003 Subaru Outback

Question From japarks71 on Headlight problem 2003 Subaru Outback

I have a 2003 Subaru Outback. Both headlights do not work. New Bulbs, fuses are all good, High beams work as does the high beam relays. Driving lights and parking lights work. I think it might be the switch in the turn signal arm. The part is $82.00 Any ideas before i do this to save the money on trouble shooting or how to make sure this is in fact the problem?

Response From Loren Champlain Sr Top Rated Answer


Sounds like a dimmer switch failure.

Response From nickwarner

you say your high beams work, which means you have power to the switch. Look at the trigger terminal for the low beam relay. When you switch to low beam you should have power to that terminal. Make sure also that you have power to the constant terminal of the relay. If you get no power to the trigger wire when requesting low beams most likely cause is that switch.
