View Full Version : 99 2.5 RS questions

10-04-2009, 11:07 PM
My 99 Impreza 2.5 RS (5-speed manual)was having issues with the 5th gear. It would go into gear but pop out as soon as i stepped on the throttle.

I pulled the tranny out and started to dissamble it and after i got the rear differential out and pulled the diff case off, just the 5th gear and gear selector shaft is hangin out there. I noticed that the big nut securing the 5th gear on was pretty loose and had been moving around in there.

I need to know the torque of this nut and what kind of gear oil i need to put in it. If anyone knows or knows where i can get this info, that would be great!

Also, Ive noticed that no one makes repair manuals for this car, only the dealer and they only sell it by the sections.......lame.
