  1. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    I'm revisiting this issue after having recently gotten my Forester back on the road. Here's the story: A few years ago I bolted up a Curt tow bar. Shortly after, I filled up my fuel tank, which then immediately resulted in fuel leaking from the tank itself, as well as the engine idling poorly...
  2. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    Hey guys - am new to the Forum. My father recently passed away and I 'inherited' his 2010 Subaru Forester XT. I love the car; it has it quirks, but am currently working through them. We live in Westhchester, NY and am curious if anyone can recommend a decent shop in the Westchester...
  3. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    Hello - New here. My wife's forester recently started leaking from under the glove compartment. We've only noticed in in the last few days. We just had the first rain in many months but this was even the day before it rained. I will note a few things. I changed the cabin air filter a few months...
  4. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    I was just changing my oil before a 1000 mile road trip planned for this weekend and discovered this oil leak. Are any of the great sages here familiar with this issue? i didn't find anything on search. Really trying to determine if I can fix this my self easily (I usually do all my own work)...
  5. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    Hi! Got an axle replaced, seals done and no more transmission leaks, except now I found another leak! I sprayed the underside with Brakekleen and let it sit, idled for 15 minutes and nothing. Come back in the morning and check again and there it is, a leak. 2 pea shaped black spots. I traced...
  6. Transmission and Driveline
    Heyo! I've been battling this problem for about a month now - here's the story: When I bought it, it would smoke from the transaxle area, diff fluid was burning off the exhaust. I thought to myself okay, so I got it up on the lift at a friends place, changed the transmission and diff fluid...
  7. EJ25 - 2.5L Non-Turbo (1998-2010)
    Need to do the HG on my 05 forester 2.5x. Wondering what the names of all the gaskets I should replace are, and if anyone can direct me to proper parts at Rockauto. They have a few engine gasket kits but these don't specify all the components included so I don't want to miss anything. The whole...
  8. Sourcing Parts & Accessories
    Hello, I'm posting about something I've found a problem with on my 2006 Subaru Forester X edition. Ive noticed a drop in mileage recently and then went checking and found a leaking gas tank, now it was leaking from something I didn't know I had which was a Fuel Tank Drain Plug. I'm wondering...
  9. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    My 2009 Subaru forester currently has 81,800 miles on it. I recently noticed that it was leaking coolant? underneath on the driver's side underneath the engine. It would leak for a bit then stop once the engine is warm enough. I brought it to a mechanic who did a pressure test, a visual...

    Noticed the other day what looked like oil spot stains on driveway from the driver side rear. Inspected and can see fluid leaking towards the bottom of rear left strut. A couple drops daily for the past week. Fluid looks to be green/yellow in color. Not sure if dust boot cover is supposed to...
  11. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    Hey FIRST POST! So sorry if this is the completely wrong place... But I purchased a used Forester a few months ago (pretty much like new) and already have noticed a leak that happens every time it rains significantly... Any ways to solve/figure out the source or common problems/fixes? ANYTHING...
  12. Cooling Systems
    My beloved 2002 Forester (2.0l engine) started to leak coolant from the top of the radiator. There’s a tiny hole in the plastic on top that spits out coolant. Is there a way to replace only the plastic part at the top or do I need to replace the whole radiator? Or maybe there’s another solution...
  13. Cooling Systems
    Hi! I just bought a 2003 forester and it had a coolant leak that I am having trouble figuring out. I added dye and the leak seems to be in the rear, bottom drivers side. The steering rack, cv axle, cross member are soaked. The only hoses I can see that are in the area above it are the heater...
