Have a 99 forester L (Auto) with 105K.

I had the recommended services of 60 and 90K performed. I believe I am due for a timing belt change and Tune up at this point. But the car is lost much H/P and is burning oil. Not sure if I should bring to my regular neighborhood mechanic or the dealer. No oil leak or oil on engine. Where am I headed with this car? I hoped to get 200K on this vehicle.

How's your PCV valve? Doesn't a bad one cause sudden oil burning? When you accelerate hard, do you see some blue smoke? How about when you first start up in the morning? Any blue hazey smoke? That would be valve guides....don't know if these apply to a boxer 4.......all based on a Honda inline 4.
