  1. Forester Shopping
    So here's the story I'm looking at buying a used 2004 forester XT with 78,000mi on the body. The person selling it is the second owner, the first owner had run the engine out of oil so there was damage to the block apparently, and sold it damaged. Two years after buying it and letting it sit...

    My 2014 Forester has been an oil burner since I got it. Long road trips it would burn more enough to fail a consumption test, around town not too bad. I had pretty much decided to not worry about every getting it tested, until my father-in-law's 2011 Forester went from not burn much at all, to...

    After much research and a little educated gambling I found the solution to the dreaded crankshaft failure problem plaguing EE20 engines. I can confidently confirm the problem lies in the block manufacturing process. Why ? I have worked in aircraft component overhaul and machining of high...

    I've got a 2014 Forester Premium with the 2.5i and CVT. I'm at 93,000 miles. It's been burning oil since day one, but has been pretty consistent. Burns "a lot" on long road trips, not too bad around town. Just did the consumption test for the first time and it failed, it burned 0.8 qt over 1900...
  7. 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...
  8. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    quick back story, bought a 13 Forester 2.5x this summer, noticed it was heavily consuming oil, did an oil consumption test and found out it went through 2.8 quarts in 1,200 miles. Luckily it was still covered under the Subaru oil consumption warranty for that model (90k miles), so I'm getting a...

Our dealer, Classic Subaru of Atlanta, is recommending that we spend $4800 to “rebuild the engine/replace short block and gasket...
