  1. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    Hey everyone this is a continuation of my project with my fathers old Subaru before he passed away. car has 88k miles on it and sat for over a year outside in north west Montana. Head gaskets we’re changed to MLS about 2 years ago. I haven’t started it and before I try to start it I’m going to...
  2. Gen 4: 2010-2014
    Hello all. I have been battling a strange overheat condition in my 2010 2.5i (CVT) for a couple weeks now. It started when I first noticed the blinking red temp gauge light on the left side of the gauge cluster when driving, which started out of nowhere and caught me by surprise. Pulled over and...
  3. Engine & Drivetrain
    While starting up my Outback after replacing the head gaskets it ran ruff, shook and threw a flashing check engine light. An Innova scanner tool 3100Lat indicated misfire on all cylinders, codes P0301, P0302, P0303 and P0304 and nothing else (tested twice). I checked as best I could the vacuum...
  4. Engine & Drivetrain
    I need new heads for my EJ25 (2000). I was thinking about buying remanufactured heads (fully built) and slapping them on with new gaskets and bolts as well. Anything that I need to think about before putting these on? Do I need to adjust the valve clearances or anything to accommodate the...
  5. Gen 2: 2000-2004
    I fear that I may have blown the head gaskets on my 2002 LL Bean H6 with 160K miles. I committed the cardinal sin of any Subaru owner by not checking the temperature gauge after I started the engine, and I was about 4 Interstate miles from home when I glanced at the temperature gauge and saw it...

    Hi there! I am a new outback owner (I used to have an 05 2.5rs) I bought an 09 2.5i limited outback a few months ago. It had 147k, clean title and the dealer I bought it from said he just replaced the hg’s, timing belt, exhaust manifold gaskets and valve cover gaskets. I brought it home (4 hours...
  7. Head Gasket Issues
    Hello all, I am new to the world of subarus and am looking for advice from others who know them better than I. I bought a 98 legacy outback from a friend for $200 with 224,000 miles on it. After getting under the hood and doing diagnostics, the timing belt tensioner has failed, and it has leaks...

    Hey OB gang 👋 First post on the forum, new to Subaru and trying to buy a used Gen5 Outback Limited. Have been looking private party for a few months and found what appeared to be a good deal the other day. 2015 Limited in White with 107k miles. Asking $15k - Good shape overall but cracked...
  9. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    Back in 2015, after a successful journey through my '99 OBW replacing a broken valve stem (weird right?) and replacing the HGs along with all the other work one does when deep into it (THANKS to you wonderfully thorough diy posters!), I decided to buy a friend's '00 OBW when he was about to...
