  1. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    Hi all. Let me start off by saying I'm new to the Subaru Forums. I'm a woman in my early 20s new to doing my own work on my car, so I might not immediately pick up on acronyms, etc. I'm happy to learn! I bought my 2006 Forester 2.5X last month, with 101,001 or so miles on it. When I originally...
  2. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    So I had the OEM (at least I think OEM - car was bought used so I don't recall for sure) starter go out on me at about 70k miles about a year ago in july. I replaced it with this NAPA remanufactured one https://www.napaonline.com/en/p/RAY2446921?impressionRank=1 (interestingly napa's website...
  3. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    My 2012 Forester has had difficulty starting. I took the starter in to get tested and it failed. I replaced the starter, and the belt turns now but the engine still won't turn over. I also replaced the battery but it doesn't seem to respond unless I'm currently jumping it. When I try to start it...
  4. EJ25 - 2.5L Non-Turbo (1998-2010)
    Hi all. Helping a friend with her 2010 Forester X 2.5L. Engine was severely overfilled with oil during an oil change attempt this morning. (Like, "top of the filler neck" overfilled.) Bear with me here. Engine was started immediately afterward. Heavy, light-colored smoke from engine...

  6. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    Today I went to leave the junk yard and my 99 SF6 wouldn't start. Luckily there was a lot of car guys around to help, lol. It's done this a few times before but I had never suspected the starter until now, it always would fire up after a few tries and I figured it just needed a couple seconds to...
  7. Interior and Electronics
    I purchased a 2014 Forester and would like to install a remote starter. What is the best one to go with that won't break the bank and that is easy to install?
  8. Auto Stop / Start
    I have a 2019, and am a little concerned about the feature. I have been living with the car for 9 months now. I do find It slightly annoying in practice, but usually very little delay to get going. You can, of course, disable it for the duration of the drive. However, I am more concerned about...
  9. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    So I went to go change my bulbs on my forester, and the easiest way to do so is to take the battery out. After I completed the install and put my battery back in my car wouldn't start, it would even try. None of the lights on the dash turned on. I thought it maybe needed a new battery so I went...
