158k on boxer6. I'm doing the water pump and it's more than obvious that someone has been in the timing cover before and even deeper because I can tell by gasket sealer but I am trying to line up the timing marks very unsuccessful I have sprockets with circles that could be timing marks by the teeth and arrows by default I go with the arrows also they're supposed to be colored gold links in the chain that are supposed to lineup with the timing markes. And then I have the exhaust manifold cams that have no arrows just circles and I can't get arrows to line up Circles the lineup nothing the lineup all together at 12 with the cam and the sprockets let alone the gold links in the chain no repair book available for this particular vehicle everyone says referred to the Legacy it is different timing covers different the layouts a little different any info or help would be great
Sounds like a rubber squeak when stopping and only going forward
My TriBeCa overheats if I idle to long. What should I expect the cost for repair to be?
we replaced the fan belt tenstioner pully but the battery light, rear diff.and brake lights stay on , we are being told we need to re-set the comp.?
No oil in antifreeze or antifreeze in oil. Combustion leak test shows exhaust gases but no white or blue smoke out tailpipe. Any option besides head gasket replacement?
Also there is a squeaky sound coming from the right driver's side wheel and the starter is sticking. Any suggestions on what the problems might be or the cost of fixing it?
We have not had our Subaru for 2 months is now with the dealership for the last 3 weeks ordering parts for the injectors + now the computer board. What's up? We cannot seem to get a board (3rd time to order one, last 2 were wrong ones, and this last one had to be sent back B/C it needed to reset security since it is refurbished). what a pain...and the dealership has not even ask us if we want a loaner car. talking to manager on Monday.

Just curious about the computer board, though. Seems unlikely.
When I start my car it seems like it takes a while for the car to turn over (only a few seconds but longer than i am use to), then when it does turn over there is white/blue smoke that only last for about 10 or 15 seconds then after that it runs fine. I should also say that it only happends when the engine is cold. Not sure what to do, just bought it and wondering what i should do. PLEASE help me out!
It's as if I'm holding the key too long. It doesn't do it on every start up, just randomly.
I have a Tribeca with 98K miles on it. On start up it lets out a huge amount of bluish smoke. Looking for some advice. Got the run around by one dealer stating it was a fuel leak. This is bluish/white smoke so I am pretty sure there's an oil leak. It runs fine, oil doesn't seem to run low. Any advice on a good non-dealer place in St. Louis to take it?
MY Tribeca w/ 42k miles showed the knock sensor code - at Autozone and at independent repair shop - Since the parts were hard to get in Dallas I brought (towed for caution) to the Plano Subaru dealer- Their diagnose on this problem was that my electrical engine harness was chewed by an animal- With no choice I had them replace it at $950.- took a week to get the part- A week later another code came on for the system leak detector - fuel cap loose or faulty and 3 other possibilities. Anyone having these similiar problems? I do not trust this shop - the harness they returned indicated more that the wire was spliced
