Question Need To Find Transmission & Gas Filter

I just got a 2006 Impreza 2.5i wagon with an automatic trans. I understand I have an external trans filter. I can't find info on it's location. Same goes for the gas filter. I plan on getting a Chiltons but money is tight. Thanks for any help.

Re: Need To Find Transmission & Gas Filter

Thanks pete. Subaru and others state that it is supposed to be a life of the car filter and doesn't need changing. We bought the car used so I don't know all of its history. The fluid is a nice red and I haven't noticed any shifting issues. What's your opinion on the following?
1. Car has 130k miles. Should I change the filter just to be safe?
2. I am of the school that believes that the trans should not be flushed. Is there any possible risk in just doing a drain and fill?
