Not a super mechanically inclined person, but i bought this 5 speed 98 forester L in VA and it’s leaking and all over the place! PLEASE HELP! The valve cover gasket was just changed, but the undercarriage is covered in fresh oil and cv axel grease since the driver side inner and outer boots are leaking or torn completely. Aside from possible the head gasket i don’t know what else the problem could be. I love this car and want to save it but can’t afford the head gasket since I just bought it. /: Please help!

And I certainly do not want to be the bearer of bad news. But...if the Head gaskets have done they will need to be. When the timing belt is changed it requires 4 idlers a tensioner amd a waterpump. So sadly in the future if these items have not been done the cost is about $3000. You need tyo find a subaru specialist. Where are you located?
