  1. Gen 3: 2005-2009
    Hello all. Love this forum and I love the information. First time posting. Got a couple of issues with my 07 5mt Outback. I'll talk about just on of them today though - I have got the most annoying rattle. It only happens sometimes. Subaru techs can't find it and replicate it no matter how many...
  2. Towing & Hauling
    Hello. I am needing to haul a wooden cabinet that measure 48" wide, 24" deep and 68" tall. I have looked at all the specs numerous times and cannot decide if it will be able to be hauled in my 2011 Subaru Outback. It looks like the problem may be at the gate opening but if I were to tilt it up...

  4. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    Ok so this is nuts. I did an oil change on my wife’s 2014 forester. Done it million times before. Zero issues. This time every light came on, Check Engine, ABS, hill assist, cruise was flashing and emission warning all show up. In Dec. it did something very similar and was a transmission...

    This morning I turned my wipers on only to find that one was stuck to my windshield. However in doing that the passenger side wiper got stuck to the driver side wiper. I fiddled with the wiper for a minute and got it unstuck but in doing so, I heard something break, now the driver-side wiper...

    I'm really sorry if I posted this wrong, I've never posted here before! I have a 2004 Outback that's been giving me lots of trouble. Recently took it into a Subaru dealership and they told me the cats were bad. Upon visual inspection, they look okay, although you can't see through so that...

    --- 1999 Subaru Legacy Outback 2.5L H4 DOHC 4EAT AWD --- Hey All!! I've looked through forums and other threads but cant find what I need. I might have to do an engine swap here soon depending on whether or not this engine is worth fixing. I really want to lift this thing about 1.5-2...
  11. Engine & Drivetrain
    Hi all.. I recently swapped a motor from a 2006 2.5i LTD Outback into a 2008 2.5i base model Outback and I'm running into some issues - not sure if they're related to the swap or just an issue, hoping someone here may be able to help. I swapped the entire long block including manifold but...

    I've looked up and down the internet for one of those jdm badges for sale to put on my 03 with no results. If anyone could point me in the right direction would be much appreciated.
  13. Gen 2: 2000-2004
    Hi all, I recently have come across the opportunity to buy a 2003 Outback Base 4 speed auto. with 170k miles. I've always loved this car and I personally think it would make a good first car for me. Before I go any further with this though I am trying to get real owners experiences with the car...
  14. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    I just finished installing a OEM driver and passenger seat in my 2016 legacy 2.5i limited. Before installing the seats I’ll disconnected the battery. After installing the seats the SRS airbag light came on. I thought it was new seats that were just faulty so I re-installed the old seat and still...

    What mileage should I stop taking my 2016 Subaru Legacy 2.5i limited on road trips? Looking at doing a 1k road trip in my 2016 legacy. The mileage is on the car is about 120,000 and everything on the car is well maintained. I’m just not 100% sure if I should take the trip. What do you guys think?
  16. Engine & Drivetrain
    I got a (new to me) Gen 4 Outback 3.6R that needed a bit of love. I changed the battery the other day, and unfortunately the car won't start. Some details: I had a memory saver hooked up, but I think it didn't work as intended, and probably didn't maintain power to the OBD port. I'm an idiot...

    So I've seen a few of the posts on here about sway bar upgrades for the 15-17 OBs, but I still had a few questions. 1) What's the part number that you guys were using for the upgrade? I was looking at doing a 19mm but am not opposed to 20mm. I also don't know how much of a difference it would...

    Hello. last month my driver side window stopped working. My friend popped my door panel off and told me it was most likely this green connector thats all gunked up. After talking with some people about possible solutions I came down to the idea of cutting the wires, splicing them to quick...

    Hey all. I will be towing a 5x8" trailer on my 2005 Subaru Outback. I'll be headed from Gunnison, Colorado to Wapakoneta, Ohio. Looking for all and any helpful suggestions when it comes to making this trip. I just put new struts, bushings, and brakes on as well. I have seen multiple posts...
  20. Gen 2: 2000-2004
    I have an 04 with the 5MT in it. When i floor it into high rpms it starts making a squeeling noise, i assume timing belt? The reason i think this is because it also randomly jumps when going up hills in low rpms, feels like the engine just stops making power completely for a split second...
