so my 98 subaru impreza 2.5 rs died last night (conveniently at my bros carlot)
i think i blew the head gasket, though it wont stay running unless the pedals at the floor and even then it sputters like a lawn mower till i let it die.

im pretty pissed considering its AWD and i just got new tires right before the weekend that were supposed to get snow.

go figure this happens

at least it died in my brothers carlot the week AFTER college finals.

Guys! Why there is so much Subaru? Because it is cheap car like golf. Try Evo6. Find revolution.

you would know if its a blow head gasket oil and antifreeze would be all over the ground, sounds like a fuel pump to me or junk in the gas did you put gas in it recently?

Subarus use flat-4 boxer engines right? That sucks cause otherwise I'd tell you to get some tools and fix it yourself if it was something where the head was near the top. It's not that hard. That's not catastrophic though, you can get it fixed.

Are you sure it's the head gasket though? I've seen cars with blown head gaskets that still ran, just not quite as well.

Doesn't sound like an HG. Those 2.5L engines will still run on a blown HG but they'll overheat. Sounds like a different problem to me.

Your friend should stop buying crappy head gaskets and actually pay for some MLS gaskets or gas filled O-rings that will hold. They're not nearly as expensive as that STi was... or the warranty he voided.

sorry i was gone all day

the fuel pump did come to mind as well as the injectors
i did fill up gas that morning, but so did my coworker and a friend from the same place

another possible problem could have been the torque converter
but i dont know if that would stop it from running

I know, I couldn't f*cking believe it. Parked in the multi-storey and they were like "Oh yeah we have CCTV on all the levels except the one you were parked on."

I told the pigs that they should look at the cars that left cause I was only gone 10 minutes tops and the stupid b1tch was like "What made you think they were in a car?"

And I was like how the fuck do you think they made off with 10 bags of shopping on foot!?"

I also told them they stole my fictitious satnav, so hopefully the insurance will cover it.

But they stole some butter, some spices, and all sorts of useless ****, it wasn't like it was £100 worth of f*cking cake.

Yeah, I'm sure the fact that it isn't a classic is why it died. Definitely isn't because of the 200,000 miles.

granted i had 200,000+ miles
it was running fine prior to me parking
i give it regular oil changes every 3000 miles (also change the oil filter each time)
i hope its not worse than a blown headgasket

I love our 08 subara tribeca. Not problems with it yet, and we drove it all the way from Indiana to yellowstone and back. Idk how many miles, but we put a quite a bit on.

usually but not always when you blow a heaD gasket your car will emit white exhaust gases out of your tail pipe! Now if you have no large white cloud following your car then you might want to check the catalyc converter! If they are bad they crumble on the inside and block the folw of exhaust from coming out! two ways to test this with out a mechanic
1 Any shiny bits of metal at the end of your tail pipe and if there isnt start the car and put your hand in front of the exhaust and see if anything hits your hand! Now after the car has been running look under car and see if the catylic converter is glowing red! if it is theres your answer! hope this helps!!

You might want to switch to full synthetic oil. (and I mean real full synthetic oil, not the stuff that pretends to be) I use amsoil. Oil/filter changes once a year or at 25,000 miles (whichever comes first) and less wear on the engine than with traditional oil. It lasts so long that you save money in the long run, but it's actually quite expensive, so it's not for you if your car burns any oil and has to be topped off.

Check the fuel pump then thats problem what it is it will be cheaper then head gaskets anyway unless you do the work yourself...but it still wont fix the problem if its the fuel pump haha
