Repairpal verified 1999 Subaru Forester problems
Subaru issued a recall (WWG-90) because the mass air flow sensor has a manufacturing defect.
There have been reports of "clutch chatter," particularly when driving the vehicle from a cold start. If the issue was reported by the owner while the vehicle was still under warranty, the dealer may replace the clutch with improved parts.
The leak may develop from the oil pump seal. Our technicians prefer to use thread locker when replacing the seal to prevent the bolts from becoming loose again.
