I posted earlier today on a oil leak on my 2.5 liter '98 Outback that may have been caused by an oil change service and I am taking it back to have it check to see if it was caused by the oil change place. UNTIL then, I did look underneath tonight and I did find an oil leak on the bottom up front....just in front of the oil filter. Last summer I had this similar leak with my other 2.2 liter '98 Legacy and the cam seal was the issue and leaked from the SAME spot. There are some bolts up front bottom and the leak seems to be around/near two of them. Can these be tighten with a socket wrench? and will this slow the leak (maybe they are not tight all the way) or are we looking at replacing whatever seals are there? I swear it is in the same place as the 2.2 liter last summer....or is the 2.5 different setup inside? It cost me about $450 last summer to repair the seals along with timing belt. Wish I had a picture......it is on the bottom front with bolts holding the section in place (looks like can be taken apart with socket wrench of some sort). I can easily wipe fresh oil from it. I was told last summer these seals get brittle from heat and age.
