'04 Outback, 2.5 H4, 4SPD Auto, Cold Wx PAckage, 01 Dakota QC 4WD, 14 Equinox LT
Looking at a 98 Forester for my son. Had the HG issues with my 2.5 SOHC @ 109k. This Forester has 143k. Owner is contacting PO to determine if HG's have been done and if timing set was replaced at the same time. Does the 98 DOHC share the same HG weakness as the SOHC 2.5? Guy wants $800 for the car, so I have some $ to play with.
