    Hi all, I own an '02 Outback Limited with the manual transmission. The car has almost 180k on it and I've owned it since August 2020, when it had 163k on it. In the entire time I've owned the car, it has consumed oil...I'd say about a quart every 800 miles. What's weird though is that when I...
  3. Oil, Oil Filters, and Fuel Discussion
    Hi, I recently drove out west in the mountains (Colorado, Utah, Wyoming) and after around 3500 miles or so the low oil indicator came on and sure enough I was down a quart. I use Mobile 1 and have never had this issue until the trip... Could it be the heat or constant driving? I know the GEN 4's...

  5. Oil, Oil Filters, and Fuel Discussion
    After my 17 OB (2.5) was bought back by SOA for using 1 qt of oil in the first 700 miles. Ive been studing crankcase ventilation setups. First planned mod, first thing on my '22 XT. Thought this would be a useful topic, especially for the forced induction folks.

    So I have a 2013 Subaru Outback 2.5l limited with a CVT. I, like most owners of this year, am experiencing excessive oil consumption and would like to replace my engine. I'm doing this as part of my high school senior project and I want an engine that wasn't affected by the lawsuit. Some places...

    Hi everyone, looking to this forum for some real advice. I purchased my used 2012 Outback 3.6r in August 2020 at 119k miles. I am a college student and finally saved up some money to get the car and was super excited. I also drive ALOT. Since I got the vehicle in August the odometer now reads...
  8. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    Hi Everyone I've had my 2007 Outback for two years. During that time it has run very well, with the notable exception of having to replace the cat (~1.2K). The car has always consumed a bit of oil. I recently got a CEL about a misfire on cylinder two. My trusted mechanic reported that the...
  9. Gen 5: 2015-2019
    I have a 2016 3.6r Outback with around 48k miles on it. Bought used from local dealer last year. Engine looks great, no leaks. Starts easy, runs great. No smoke. But I seem to be losing oil anyway. I haven't done a proper measurement yet, but I just had the oil changed in mid Nov. Probably put...
  10. Gen 3: 2005-2009
    I have a 2005 2.5i with about 160,000 miles on it, and over the past year or so it has started to consume more oil to the point where every time I take a 2-3 hour drive (about 200-300 miles) the dip stick goes from reading around full to empty. Previously there wasn't this noticeable of oil...
