Default 2008 Tribeca Bad torque converter

I own a 2008 Subaru Tribeca with 68K miles and began experiencing shifting issues (shuddering/vibration). Dealer says it's the torque converter and it has to be replaced with a newer revised version. Bottom line is $2000 and I'm waiting on Subaru of America's response on whether or not they're going to assist in any way. May update this post later depending on the outcome.

I hope others know not to put gear oil in transmission. I think blackrider meant he put it in the front differential.

Yeah, I'm hoping so. I deleted his post so nobody puts 75w-140 in their transmission.

Also, the diffs call for GL5 75w-90. I doubt putting thicker gear oil is doing anything other than masking an existing issue.

When I bought mine Tribeca, I noticed there is the problem with lock up(shuddering/vibration) . I've searched the internet and find out, that between 2008-2009 Subaru installed problematic TC with 5EAT's (end of part# 140) and they replaced it with part #142. I took down mine transmission and send TC to the shop, which rebuilds TC. When I went there to pick up mine TC, they told me, the lock up friction plates were complete burned out. They replaced them, I put mine transmission with rebuild TC and for the least 18k km I have no problems with lock up engaging.
So instead buying new TC, find shop which can arrange TC rebuild

Yea, I too had a local shop do work on the TC on my WRX. I had them raise the stall. I'd definitely check the local shops before dropping that sort of cash down at the stealership.
