    Hello! My 05 Forester 2.5X has a crazy leak/drain near the oil pan. Car runs fine in idle without any problems. But after taking for a 20 second drive, it pours. Anyone know what's located down there so I can start identifying components and start removing stuff? Don't know much about Forester...

    I found the source of the coolant leak. It is the water pump. Would anyone happen to have some advice on parts for a new one as well as timing belts while there? Any information on the labor would be appreciated as well

    Hey y'all, Check engine light came on while driving. Idle and start sounded normal. Scanner threw a sole P0302 code- cylinder 2 misfire. Vehicle over 200k miles so I know when coupled with the fact that I have to replace coolant almost daily after replacing the radiator that it's probably the...

    Ok ....so my '03 Forester is overheating and I can see a little drip of coolant coming from what looks like the back side of the engine block. With not very much oil leakage. So I did a combustion block leak test and it came back negative. No combustion gases in the coolant system. It doesn't...

    Hello, Please help. I have had my car look at by my local mechanic and a Subaru specialized one. It has gone terribly. Neither of them found a true cause of why my car was overheating or why the coolant levels are now depleting rapidly. They replaced the thermostat just to be safe, and it seems...

    Having recurring issues with overheating over the past year in my 2008 Forester X. No visible coolant loss throughout the problem period. It has been pressure tested 3 times over this time as well, every time it comes back fine. I have been adding about 1/3 of a bottle of coolant to the rad...

    About a month ago my 2006 Forester overheated on the drive home, the radiator had cracked near the cap. I swapped the radiator after waiting a week for the part to come in and the engine misfired afterwards when I started it. A few codes came up (P0303, P0137) for a cylinder misfire and a faulty...

    I've got an 07 Forester with 188k miles of questionable history. Over the past week I've notice some issues with the cooling system. 1. Fog accumulating on the right (passenger) 1/3rd of the windshield and passenger window. At first I assumed this was just blocked vent or something of that...

    I have an 06 FXT and recently switched out the lower radiator hose. I noticed coolant leaking out of this area (see pic). What exactly am I looking at? does anyone know what the issue is? thanks

    Hi! My 2009 Forester I bought 6 weeks ago is now taking 1/2 gallon of water a day and there is no evidence of a leak, no drips or puddles underneath. Where is all the liquid going? Does this mean it's leaking into the motor? Blown head gasket? There is no coolant in the oil. The overflow tank...
