  2. Forester Shopping
    Hello! I have never owned a Subaru before, but have always been interested in one. I’m in the market for a new car. I graduate from college in a week and prefer something that will last me for a long while (ideally at least 3-5 years), gets decent mileage, and can handle well in the snow. If it...
  3. EJ25 - 2.5L Non-Turbo (1998-2010)
    So I've read a couple of posts here regarding oil leaking and burning. I have a 2004 with 160,000+ miles on it. It leaks oil (about a quart every 2 months) and I've just been topping it off between oil changes. I've read that it's because of the sub-quality head gaskets Subaru originally...
  4. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    Just bought my 05 xt ,150k on the odo, for dirt cheap, PO said he changed everything except head gaskets and it's still overheating. On test drive it over heated within 10 minutes of driving. It was cheap enough I bought it even though it was dark and cold,, so I didn't look it over very well...
  5. EJ25 - 2.5L Non-Turbo (1998-2010)
    My trusty 3rd Subaru and second Forester has blown its timing belt 225k miles while driving a few weeks ago. Timing Belt kit was done at 136,000, I knew it was coming up for replacement and I was pushing it. I obviously have leaky gaskets too and also realized I would need to replace gaskets...
  6. EJ25 - 2.5L Non-Turbo (1998-2010)
    Hello all, I am in need of some advice (obviously), my foz is about to roll over 324,000 and I'm about to do the head gaskets. I bought the car a couple of years ago for $200 at about 300,000 miles. It was a steal! Needed a new alternator so I slapped a spare one I had on it and drove it home...
  7. Forester Shopping
    I’m thinking of purchasing a 2005 forester with 167,000km that has not had the head gaskets replaced, I’m just wondering how much it should cost to have those done? Thanks!
  8. EJ25 - 2.5L Turbocharged (2004-2013)
    I'll start off by saying this XT was my late son's car...it's mine now. My son loved this car, we found it together and in 2016...the idea was to use it to get through College and into his career...hopefully by then he'd be able to afford to replace it, he passed way Dec 18, 2019. Took his car...
