  1. EE20 - 2.0L Diesel
    Hello, I'm the owner of a Subaru Outback 2.0 turbo diesel. When I bought the car had 93k km and now has almost 115k km. I didn't have any issue, it works good, from my point of view, all the changes I have done were at the Subaru dealer. My question is regarding the engine, which I know that...
  2. EE20 - 2.0L Diesel
    Decided to do another DPF clean, in order to make it worthwhile taking it off, to do some exhaust wrapping. I made a better effort to plug up the holes, to keep the cleaning solution inside. (see pic). So this time it was less of a guessing game and much more straight forward (as I took the...
  3. EE20 - 2.0L Diesel
    Car: subaru forester 2015 turbo diesel History: the car started showing a dpf filter fault, took it to the mechanic and he did a clean. This lasted about 2-3 weeks. It kept happening, We did another couple of cleans and a forced reset. The problem kept returning. Then, not only did the dpf...
  4. EE20 - 2.0L Diesel
    Very curious how others drive this particular beast. The 'upshift suggestion' indicator on the dash is completely useless, way too low. This is my first Diesel and so still getting used to it, a bit concerned about over-revving it but maybe it's unwarranted. I usually shift between 2-3k RPM...

  6. EE20 - 2.0L Diesel
    I've owned my 2008 Diesel Outback for some months now, but there are still some things I don't understand. When driving 50-110km/h I sometimes get a high pitch, metallic clicking sound. It sounds like a loose screw, vibrating fast. It lasts for a couple of seconds, sometimes longer. Is this...
  7. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    Asking for a friend- Overfilled the Diesel Forester, roughly a liter. Smoked a bit, then after a while (more than a few hours) it went away. Dash lights are now on, but otherwise it seems to run fine. I am wondering if the excess oil found an alternate route out of the engine, and as a result...
  8. Australia / New Zealand
    Hi there, I'm new here and looking for some advice. I'm currently eyeing up a 2015 Manual Forester 2.0D-L S4 and I've heard that people have had DPF troubles with short range driving in the diesel. I live in a coastal town north of Sydney so I'm not doing small distance, city driving but I'm...
