I have a 1995 Subaru Impreza LX with Transmission Code: TZ102ZA3BA. This tranny is slipping and I’d like to replace it. I’ve been offered one from a 1997 Impreza Outback Sport Transmission Code: TZ102ZA5AA. Are these interchangeable? Thank you

Edit: I should clarify these are automatic transmissions

Depends what motor is in your car I think. All the outback sports of that year had a 4.11 final drive. you could have something different and you can not mix and match drive ratios.

There's something with the electronics as well, iirc. I think there were two versions for phase 1 cars, then another later on. You might be ok with a 97.

@RenoThrasher: Sorry. The TZ prefix should have tipped me off, but it was late and I just skimmed. Unfortunately I know next to nothing about Subaru auto transmissions, but I wish you the best of luck.

For the 93-01 Subarus the rule of thumb is usually this:


1.8 and 2.2 engine'd cars run a 4.11 Automatic Trans


2.5 engine'd cars run a 4.44 Automatic Trans


As long as the final drive matches, you should be ok.
