Customer Question
I have a 2005 Subaru...
I have a 2005 Subaru Outback Sedan 3.0R H6 and Automatic Transmission with 200,000 miles in great shape. I was recently driving and the transmission felt like it was in neutral when just leaving a stop light. The check engine/sport mode lights came on and the cruise light began blinking. I made it home and used my scan tool to pull the codes. I got the following:
P1799,P1798,P0700(Transmission Control System),P0771(shift solenoid E Performance/Stuck Off.

Hi,most problems lie with either the valve body or the wiring harness on these 5 speed transmissions,how does the fluid look?

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
the fluid still has a red tint and does not smell burned.
Subaru Mechanic: tamaz, Subaru master technician replied 10 months ago

Good , is there any damage to the transmission pan?

Ask Your Own Subaru Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
not that I can see from the outside. I have not removed the pan so far.
Subaru Mechanic: tamaz, Subaru master technician replied 10 months ago

I always ask because the valve body hangs so low any damage to the pan usually harms one or more the solenoids let me get a look at the wiring diagram

Subaru Mechanic: tamaz, Subaru master technician replied 10 months ago

The harness in the transmission will need to be checked here , the pan must be removed pins #1 and 10 must be checked for resistance of solenoid E to ground If the solenoid is at fault the entire valve body needs to be replaced .If this is the case you may want to consider a reman transmission if the car is worth keeping the valve body is at least $800

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
is there an online diagram showing where these are located after removing the pan? and is it possible to only replace the solenoid?
Subaru Mechanic: tamaz, Subaru master technician replied 10 months ago

The solenoid is not sold separately,there is not a image I can find showing solenoid E probably because valve body is sold as a complete assembly
