SOURCE: How to adjust Dusk Sensing Headlights on a Subaru outback.

Hello, to my knowledge there is no way to do this adjustment manually. You must hook up the Subaru scan tool and adjust the sensitivity that way. If the dealer has already calibrated it once they may have just not desensitized it enough or the sensor is faulty and is not accepting the recalibration protocol and is biased to full sensitivity. In this case the sun-load sensor must be replaced. I hope this info helps...(subytech1)...

SOURCE: subaru 2001 outback... oil under the rubber spark

Hi,
The oil in the spark pug hole is coming from a seal in the cam cover.
It will eventually fill up enough to short out the plug. Putting new seals in the cover should not be to expensive. Good Luck!!!!!!!

How do i change my oil?


Remove filler cap,
lift car
then from under the car remove oil pan drain plug.
Allow oil to drain into an oil waste pan.
Change oil filter also ..located under skid plate..use filter wrench to remove filter. Be careful as filter is full of oil ..drain in waste pan
wipe filter mounting plate clean..put a thin coating of oil on new filter gasket before spinning it on to the mounting plate..hand tighten and then tighten about 3/4 more turn.. reinstall drain plug. do not over tighten or you can strip the threads. Install correct viscosity and amount of oil start engine. let run to get pressure up. shut off engine, check level with dipstick and close cap....you are done.

Why does my car make a heavy clunking noise when I restart the engine after setting a short time?


Hi,

Have a listen near the oil pump. Could be a problem with bringing the oil to the engine. A clogged oil screen which is in the engine combined with a failing oil pump may be causing this.

This is a level 4 out of 5 DIY so be prepared for the work.

I hope that helps.
