I picked up a 2001 Forester 5 speed with 123000 miles now with 128000 miles. Original HEADGASKETS.. Whats the highest anyone has gotten on original set.. Do they go more in summer or winter months??? Thanks
My 99 Forester was at about 215K when I detected gas bubbling into reservoir and replaced the HG's. It has never overheated while I've owned it. It leaked a little coolant much earlier, perhaps from 1st day I bought w/ 82K miles.
153000 on mine. They were leaking a little coolant on the ground shortly after I bought it. Put coolant conditioner in it and no more problems. Never overheated (yet), and not using any coolant. It does leak oil, from just about everywhere.
