    Mr. Gary,

    I have been lurking around the forums for some time and am having an issue that your knowledge would hopefully help with. Any help would greatly be appreciated. I am an average wrencher that has taken my outback apart twice now.

    Short story because the message board will not allow the long one. Would you please help me with my outback engine issue. I need new heads and I cannot find any with the EGR like my 03 2.5 has on it. I can get some from a salvage yard that are non EGR. Would I be able to do the EGR delete as you have posted and use non EGR heads? I can send you more info on what I have done in an email or multiple messages if you would like.

    I have had the car apart more than together and drove it a total of 100 miles. I really want to get it up and running soon and our of the garage. ****, I will send you some Wisconsin cheese in trade.

    Thanks for your time,

    Dana Bongle

    Hey grossgary (or is it Gary Gross?).

    Our '01 Outback Wagon, which I think is in okay shape (about 150,000 miles), now has a blown engine (hole in the block, won't hold oil). Happens to now be at the dealer in Staunton, VA. Someone on the board suggested touching base with you for thoughts on what we might do. Gut is to scrap it (and maximize dollars; it has pretty new tires for sure), but perhaps we should think about putting in another (used) engine, and getting it back on the road.

    Any suggestions/recommendations?

    I was told I should seek your advice. This is what I posted:
    I have searched and think I found my answer but nothing definite. I have a 2002 Outback 2.5 and when the car sits for more than 5-10 minutes it is hard to start. I think the fuel pressure is bleeding off. Is there an actual pressure check valve or is it part of the fuel pump? It's just annoying not life threatening, but if it is the pump, I don't want it to go out altogether while I'm out driving. Any help will be appreciated.

    Thank You

    Sure. Thanks. I had contacted Nipper as well since I know he crosses over from USMB to SubaruOutback but hadn't heard back if USMB was actually up and running. I guess I have more noodling to do.

    hey grossgary.
    happy new year!
    i read in one of your post "check the bolts for that transverse bushing - the capture nuts they thread into can break free from the welds inside. then you've got a fun repair...or most people will just take it to a shop. i've got one under the knife now for this repair."

    and i have the same problem, one of the capture nuts broke loose, been racking the ole noodle trying to figure out the repair, how did you overcome this dilemma?
    any advice would be gratefully appreciated.
