TODAY WE ARE TALKING: AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION OIL TEMPERATURE WARNING LIGHT
If you see the AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION OIL TEMPERATURE WARNING light illuminate while driving, the automatic transmission fluid may be too hot. Heat is the number one killer for automatic transmissions, so be cautious if you see this light on your dash.
Avoid steep grades or stop-and-go traffic. If the light flashes at start-up, it may indicate a problem in the control system. Stop the vehicle as soon as you can safely do so and have it towed to the closest Subaru dealership.
