    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.
    thanks

    Hi Grossgary. You have been mentioned in multiple searches and threads I've read. I am looking for a bit of advice, I have a 2001 outback with what appears to be a blown head gasket. If going OEM, what part number do you recommend? what do you recommend for valve cover gaskets, etc.?

    Hi grossgary,

    I just joined the forum. There's a lot I don't know about the EZ30D engine. I might send you a few questions after I find an intelligent way to articulate them.

    Best,
    -Sam
