I replaced the vehicles timing kit and MAF and still the car looses power and misfires on acceleration. I had to replace the fuel filter and Relay which worked for a 2 weeks and now back to the same problem. Engine Diagnosis shows no error codes
Front differential has overheated and gone bad, the dipstick skock out and almost all the gear oil was lost. This is wifes car. It took nearly 1.5 quarts to fill, but the damage is already done. Whines and as soon as you leave off the gas car slows like the brakes are being applied. Other than that car has ran great for last 8 years. I would do the work myself however I have been rebuilt too. My cervical neck had to have total reconstruction so working on car days are over except for easy jobs like oil changes, brake jobs,tranny flush, tune ups. Thanks for any help. Joe

I had my battery tested and they told me it was in good condition. I have just recently replaced the alternator so I know it is good. Jet if I let my car sit overnight the battery is dead in the morning. If I disconnect the battery it holds a charge just fine.

My vehicle is a Legacy Outback. Some times I smell a burning smell. Some times it smells like oil and other times like hot water. The dealer showed me that I have oil leaking from Head gasket. There is oil accumulated on parts under the car, but I have never seen any oil on the ground where I park. The dealer said I need to replace the Head gasket for $1,500. I have the following two questions, please:
1) A friend was told she had to replace her Head gasket and then a second mechanic said it just needed to be tightened. How do I know if it needs to be replaced or tightened?
2) If I replace the Head gasket, is there any chance, there would be a recurring problem with this car?
