Hey

hold AT is for icy conditions where you want the car not to change gear, (loss of traction/power) and my Subaru manual says idle engine up to 1 min after heavy driving, (lol this is not a very long time)

Head gasket replacement cost?


Dealership $1500-2K but local Subaru shop should be 1/2 that. TB kit with all idlers, WP, and belt runs $200-300. Then adding all the things you might as well do it such as plugs, coolant, machine shop for heads adds up really quick.

Possible dirty fuel injector which is most common. It can also be bad oxygen sensors, vacuum leak, or worst case a leak at the intake manifold.

Overheating.


One thing to do, would be check the condition of your rad hoses. Not uncommon for them to be fine at certain speeds, but soft enough to collapse & restrict flow at higher speeds.

2001 Subaru Forester - Engine Cut Off system?


This is for turbo equipped cars to allow the turbo to cool to a safe temperature before stopping it. A usual amount of time is approx 10 seconds of engine running at idle after driving the car hard.

Turbo systems for a 97 2L forester


Hi Stu, A turbo only starts to help above 3000rpm. To instal a used one is questionable as they can be a real pain with internal oil leaks! Plus you will need to find an oil supply and return.
Your best bet is to give it a good cleaning an wax job, trade it in on a real 'grunter'! Frankster016
