    ‘98 SF Forester. Hi there, I’m getting water leaking into the passenger footwell when I run my aircon for a long time on hot days (Australia). I can’t find any pics or diagrams so I don’t really know if anything’s missing from the back of the unit below/behind the glovebox. There seems to be a...
  2. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    Hello all, I've got a '98 Forester (5MT) 2.5 with about 270k on the clock. Recently, here in Wisconsin, we had a pretty cold week where morning temps were around -15F. The car would fire up right away, but I noticed a slight hesitation under partial load around 2000 rpm. The symptom only...
  3. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    Hi everyone, It has been a while but now I need some advice. I am on a road trip for research my Masters when things started going wrong. I drive a 1998 Subaru Forester S auto (Dohc) with 200,900 miles as of writing this. Before leaving I checked my oil and it was at the L, I added a bit to get...

    Hi all, I left my car at my mates the other week and when I went to pick it up the locking mechanism was screwed (I think someone failed at breaking into it). Currently when I try to turn the key, it's stiff and causes the whole cylinder (the key part of the door) to rotate a little. Just...

    I have a 1998 Subaru Forester, and I'm not sure when the belt was last replaced it runs great, but I was just going to change it as insurance as I like the vehicle. I did some research and I like using Aisin or OEM when doing timing belts as I've always had good luck. Rock auto has gates kits...

  7. Lighting and Electrical
    Hey guys. I'm going crazy trying to fix my 1998 Subaru Forester L. A month ago I noticed my fuse for my power door locks blew. So I replaced it. Then two days ago completely unrelated I got back into my car in the evening and went to turn my lights on and noticed when I turned the light switch...
  8. EJ25 - 2.5L Non-Turbo (1998-2010)
    Is there a good writeup with pictures and/or a video about how to do them on a 98? As you may know, the 98 is different from the 99+ since it has the DOHC EJ25D and the spark plugs are in a different location. I know it's difficult, and therefore ruthenium is a must so you'll never have to do...

    Just wondering if anyone’s got a pinout for 1998 forester gt. 2.0l DOHC turbo, I’m doing a swap from a wreck into my car with a blown motor, I’ve got the loom out and have started tracing wires. Would be a much shorter process with a diagram, any help would be appreciated, thanks
