  1. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    From my oil changes, I’ve been noticing my vehicle was either burning or leaking about a quart of oil every 5k miles. Being a noob, I’ve been ignoring it for a while. Today I found the area where it seeks to be leaking but can’t really nail down an exact location. Pardon my photos. Maybe the...
  2. Gen 2: 2000-2004
    Hi! New to the forum from Colorado! I have a 2004 Outback with the 2.5 EJ251 with 189k. I purchased the car back (also got an 05 for the wife) in July from a used car dealer. Recently I’ve been having over heating issues with the ‘04 and I have replaced the thermostat with OE, new radiator...
  3. 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...
  4. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    I am working on replacing the water pump (and timing belt, idlers, and tensioner) on my 2006 Outback 2.5i Limited Automatic (~160k miles). For context, the car was overheating in a spectacularly rapid fashion, would go from cold to 3/4 hot in less than a minute, and coolant was spraying out...

I then tried to install the new sprocketed guide pulley next to the water pump and realized that I couldn’t torque the bolt to specs. I removed the bolt and pulley and discovered that...
  6. Gen 5: 2015-2019
    Hit 100k and going to do a lot of maintenance on it. Serpentine belt, plugs/wires, and most importantly the water pump/thermostat. Nothing is coming up and from the one picture I saw this gen has the pump mounted so you do not have to remove the cover. Is this correct? Looks like I can just...
  7. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    Hi all, 2010 2.5l Subaru Outback with around 90k miles on it (had in since around 50k). At the end of a 7 hour road-trip a few months ago the car overheated, blowing coolant everywhere (seemingly out of the top of the overflow tank). No signs of a leak anywhere. Turns out the fuse was blown...
