This is my first post ever here and I am hoping someone can help me out. I have a question concerning my 1996 Legacy L Wagon. It has 191,000 miles on it with original engine and manual transmission.
I've had the car for a few months now and have noticed that 1st and 2nd gear produce a whining noise when I drive. Is this normal for this tranny? Also, occasionally the car has trouble getting into 2nd gear. I have to sort of force it in instead of being able to glide the gear in.
Are these signs that my transmission is going bad? Any comment would be gladly appreciated.
