View Full Version : Diff oil and ATF

04-14-2008, 12:59 PM
I am possibly buying a 97 subaru legacy outback. I am not brand new to the EJ series engines, but still a bit new.
I am proficient at working on all the EA series engines and the EA transmissions had two dip sticks for fluid, One was for ATF and the other was for Diff oil for the front diff.
Are the EJ series setup the same (with two dipsticks) or is it just normal atf that goes into the whole thing? thanks again

on the BD series EJ25 4EATs, the dipstick is the same as the filler tube for the 4EAT. The front diff has a different filler tube/dipstick.

It's been 2 years since I checked, so someone shoot me if I'm wrong.
