    Replacing the ignition coils in my 2011 outback 2.5I. 1st coil came out it was a little hard to pull out, but came out. The second one came out, but left the bottom inside. Anyone know if I can get it out without taking it to the shop?
  2. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    Hey everyone, new around here and relatively new to maintaining a Subaru (properly), let alone cars. Not sure what even to look up, as I've been scouring the internet since this happened. I may not be using the correct terms, my bad. I had an 08 2.5i Legacy before this and the H6 is a different...
  3. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    My 2012 outback 2.5i vibrates on approaching full stop. This happens in first 10-15 min of driving and it goes away. I checked the fluids and also changed the oil/filter a few days ago. Again, once it is warmed up, it goes away. It is from the engine area, with no noise. Almost feels like...
  4. Oil, Oil Filters, and Fuel Discussion
    So, I have driven my newly bought 09 3.0 Ltd for about 1,500 miles - a couple of road trips and regular in-town driving. ODO is 37k miles. Checked my oil stick and it is below the "low" dot. I guess I need to begin adding oil now? The dealership I bought it from about a month ago put 5w30 reg...

    Hi All, I'm looking for advice on how to handle my dad's low mileage (~3000 miles) 2020 Impreza 2.0 engine that overheated and now barely cranks. I know this is an Outback focused forum, but I can't really find anything for Imprezas that has any activity and isn't mostly concerned with...

    I'm planning to buy (first time) a 2022 Outback and have been configuring options for a Premium to order. I've read reviews around the web mentioning the noticeable improvement in pep or performance with the Limited's 2.4L over the Premium's 2.5L. My questions: All other things being equal...
  10. Oil, Oil Filters, and Fuel Discussion
    So my dealer changed the oil on my 2020 outback, and after an overnight at the house and about 200 highway-only miles, I heard a knocking sound, then the oil light, and by the time I pulled over and stopped, smoke. Two minutes later and I have a massive puddle of oil under the car and a...

    So I just got a 1998 Subaru Legacy outback and I’m wondering what engines I’m able to swap with it. I was told it might be possible to swap it with a turbo charged wrx sti engine but I’d like to be 100% sure before doing it. So if anyone is able to help me out or give me some tips that’d be...

    I have a 2000 Subaru Outback, that really hasn’t given me many issues at all. Today I went out and started the engine to get the car warmed up(recovering after a snow storm). My car started up fine, but as I was walking back inside I heard this loud scraping noise. I just assumed it was my...
