Does anyone know how to change the ignition coil on a 1998 forester? Is it a quick change or something a real mechanic should do?

Could not be simpler, it's up on the top of the motor where the spark plug wires start. A couple of bolts, wiring harness and spark plug cables to remove. You can do it and then consider yourself a real mechanic :) Only word of caution, do not use the coil pack as a place to rest your hand (putting your weight on it) because it may crack the plastic and cause all sorts of issues. I only say that because it's in the perfect spot for that purpose ;)

Some info here:
