1999 Subaru Impreza Outback Problems

Engine Oil May Leak From Camshaft/Crankshaft Front Seals

Front engine oil leaks can develop from the camshaft seal and the crankshaft front seal. If one or more seals require replacement, it may be wise to consider replacing the timing belt as well. These seals are commonly inspected and replaced as needed as part of a timing belt service.

Cooling System Problems Cause Head Gasket Failure

The head gasket has a high failure rate due to cooling system problems. Subaru is aware of the problem and has extended the warranty to 8 years/100k miles on many vehicles.

Clutch may "chatter" if car is driven without warming up

A noise in the clutch called "clutch chatter" is common if the car is driven without allowing it to warm up.
