- when is it time to ditch my 2007 Subaru? Mechanic said head gasket broken.

A vibration or shutter may be noted on acceleration. If the transmission torque converter is suspected a revised part is available to correct this concern.
The front oxygen (air fuel ratio) sensor element may develop a crack, causing the Check Engine Light to illuminate. Subaru has recalled certain models to replace sensors that may fail. The Subaru service program number is WXW-80, this is not a government mandated recall.
2007 Subaru Outback Questions
The Subaru dealer mechanic said both headgaskets leaking, inner axle boot cracked, and timing belt must be replaced, cost of $2000. If I fix these, how much longer before I face other major problems/major costs? Should I keep repairing, or bail out now?
I have an exhaust leak at the wye connection immediately before the mufflers. 1) why do I need two mufflers, and 2) can I replace the left muffler with a longer inlet pipe that replaces the wye connection?
After I release breaks - car practically don't move until I press gas pedal. I think it's car Computer. How to reset it. Or, just wait a couple of more days, and it will reset itself ? Thanks.
2007 Subaru Outback Recalls
In areas where salt is used on the roads, slush containing road salt can splash through a gap in the fuel tank protector resulting in corrosion of the brake lines. This corrosion may lead to brake fluid leakage resulting in reduced braking performance, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the affected vehicles and leaking brake lines will be replaced. Anti-corrosion rustproofing wax will be applied to all recalled vehicles.
