    Hi all, Following the unfortunate demise of my old Outback, I'm looking at an Impreza to purchase. The seller doesn't know when or If the timing belt and other associated parts were ever changed and I can't find a single shop in that area that will check this as part of a repurchase...
  3. Engine & Drivetrain
    I have been doing some research into new motors for my car which is a 05 2.5L without the EGR and found that you can get a motor from a newer outback e.g. a 07 that has EGR and cut and weld the EGR pipe shut and transfer the intake manifold from the original motor onto the new one.

  4. Engine & Drivetrain
    My 2005 Outback manual is in need of a new motor and I have done some shopping around and found a guy that will sell a 2004 forester auto motor.

    I was driving the Baja to work recently. I had a Check Engine Light come on followed shortly by a blinking AT Oil Temp light. This was after about fifteen minutes of driving on a mostly flat road at around 60 MPH I pulled over and checked the AT fluid, it wasn't hot really, just warm to the...

  10. Forum Rules, New Member Information & Intro.
    I have a 2001 outback and the motor is knocking and I was looking to put something else in. A 350 small block is definitely not gonna fit (i tried to convince myself it would but the evidence for failure was just too much) what would be the best/easiest swap. I'm looking for more power than...
