1996 Subaru Impreza Outback Problems

Oil leak from rear of engine due to failed plastic oil baffle plate

Rear engine oil leaks may occur because Subaru used a plastic oil baffle plate that failed. This issue is often misdiagnosed as a crankshaft rear oil seal leak or an oil pan gasket leak. Subaru released an updated design of the baffle plate made from aluminum that stops the oil leak.
