Checked fluids, took her for a ride, and stared at her out in the garage in awe that we now have a Subaru in the garage! Just brought her home Friday, 03 XS automatic. Wife's new car, otherwise it would be a manual!
Similar plans for me tonight. Doing an oil change, filters, plugs, and rear wiper blade. Ooh, I need to remember to grab some plastic tubing from work to try out the wind noise fix. Ours is BAD.Changed the air filter, verifed the 30k service had been done by the previous owner, changed the wiper blades and scotchguarded the interior. Made an appointment to have a squeaky driver's window repaired (at their cost of course)...
You know, I didn't even think of that. I do have a copy of the carfax, and it has no such record. It even shows the one time it was taken back to its original dealer for a warranty claim, back in 04. No service records on carfax since then. Dang it.garyg7133 said:Have your VIN number ready. If you have a carfax it's even easier. Carfax sometimes shows the last major service, especially if it was through a dealer. That said, I'd email the local dealerships' service departments and see if they have anything on the vehicle by VIN. I emailed the dealership that originally sold my Foz (it's near Alfred NY an I'm in PA) and they were more than happy to give me info on the car. The dealer who sold me the car last week is going to print up a full report on anything that was done by Subaru when I go in to have the window checked out.
Good Luck with the search for info.
No clue. Car has 156k on it, I'm guessing at least 100k on the plugs? Ridiculous. I was happy to see that the timing belt did appear to have been previously changed, or just held up reaaaally good for 156k. No mystery leaks found, cam seals, rear main, front main, water pump, all dry. Tempted to just leave them alone.nadesico81 said:How many miles were on the plugs?
Well, there's a decent chance it was replaced 50k ago since the belt looks to be in good condition. I'm not going to mess with it, especially with an OEM pump costing $100+. I do need to do trans and diff fluids, guess I'll add that to my list.nadesico81 said:When I did the timing belt last week I saw no defects with the water pump so I let it be. When I took my timing belt off it did not appear too worn but you never know. Since changeing the transmission fluid and filter the car shifts much smoother.
