    Probably burnt piston rings or valve stem seals if it wasnít leaking but was losing that much

    Keep us posted on what the results are. At least you can still use the car until the new engine comes in.

    Subaru

    My 10 year old Forester with 148k miles has been problematic recently. An intermittent starting issue proved beyond my mechanicís ability to diagnose. It spent four days at the dealership and multiple issues were addressed to the tune of $1800+.

    That was a month ago. Last night it didnít start again. Not turning over but the battery isnít dead. Likely a starter.

    This is leading to conversations about a new car but our Outback is less than two years old. Iíd like to get the Forester to last a couple more years so weíre done with the Outback payments but thatís getting tough to justify. Also, the Forester still has the original head gaskets which obviously worries me.

    Edit: And today the sumbitch started right up which means I have yet another intermittent problem. Last one went months before it was diagnosed.

    Not to my knowledge. The maintenance guide says to replace at 105k, which is what I did. Newer Subarus use a chain, I think.
