    Engine oil in coolant

    I have read they didn't change head gasket style till 2011. Was thinking of buying a new forester but I now wonder if they still have the same old head leaking problems that occur around 120.000 miles ! Will probably buy another make !!

    Yeah they also chewed the wires badly coming out of the firewall from the computer going to the control box, so that bit of wiring harness would have to be cut from a donor car. I dont really want to hit the junk yards on a search! that would be up to my son-inlaw as its his car.

    OEM vs OES Timing Belt Part Quality

    I have had good luck with a NAPA belt on my tercel, think it was a cardone, the first pump, don't remember the name now but it didn't last 10,000 miles. Also I think the Aisin pumps are from Japan, which I hope that makes them better than the Chinese.
