1999 Subaru Legacy Outback Problems
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.
Subaru issued a recall (WWG-90) because the mass air flow sensor has a manufacturing defect.

The car worked perfectly fine until recently. The fuses/relays at the time looked fine as well.
a trip from nc to florida and they suggested that I change the timing belt with water pump plus new power steering pump at a cost of 1028 dollars but with no apparent problems showing at present time. Please help.
1999 Subaru Legacy Outback Reviews
Excellent, reliable car. I will buy another Subaru when I'm ready to replace this one. Very few repairs required, but I get regularly recommended maintenance done on time.
runs and drives like a dream. the only complaint i have is that the spark plugs are a royal PAIN to change. i guess the offset is that it takes me around 5 minutes to change the oil.
very good car,you can play on snow with this car.My cars starter went bad on 70000 mils.
