RepairPal has identified the most common problems with the 2008 Subaru Forester based on complaints from actual vehicle owners. We'll tell you what the problem is and what it'll take to fix it.
An oil leak can develop from the spark plug tube seals. Excess oil in the spark plug tubes can result in engine misfires and illumination of the Check Engine Light. Our technicians tell us that removing the valve cover and replacing the tube seals and cover gasket is necessary to correct this concern. Oil damaged spark plugs, ignition wires, and ignition coils will also require replacement.
