It could be a duty solenoid or pressure control sensor fault in the trans. Did it shift shock when changing gears? Like accelerating faster, dropping 4-3, shift shock, then drives fine until shifting hard again? You should have that code read. I generally refer people to try advance auto (and some other "mcparts" stores) for reading codes but it is always hit and miss on what their readers pick up. It is worth a try unless you have your own reader. Check out the code(s) and come back here and post it up.

I know you have an outback, but this is a good read, too. You can search if it applies to the outback. http://www.subaruforester.org/vbulletin/f89/temp-light-flashing-how-read-code-237225/
