SOURCE: engine timing for a 1998 subaru forester with a 2.5

Since ignition timing is taken care of by the ECU, I guess you are asking about cam timing.
There are several marks to be aligned and if you get them wrong, you may trash your engine so I am only going to suggest you buy a Haynes service manual that has numerous good pix that show you exactly how to avoid killing your engine. And, unless you have a good-size vice well-mounted, compressing the belt tensioner again is going to give you fits.
The Haynes number you need is 89100 but it is listed only as a manual for the Legacy which uses the same engine but there may be less info that is usable on your '98 forester for which Haynes does not make a specific manual.
The later book that I have, 89101, covers all models from 2000 to 2006.

SOURCE: My 98 subaru forester is over heating

The head gasket may be a problem, but it may be simpler, if your thermostat is on the bottom of the engine.
If coolant came out when the thermostat was changed, there should be a screw, probably plastic, that goes into the radiator, or near the inlet hose, at the top. This screw is used to release steam when car overheats to restore the vaccum. Turn car on and let idle to overheating temperature. NOW PROTECT YOURSELF FROM GETTING A STEAM BURN. Turn the screw very slowly until steam starts to come out, don't unscrew all the way or you will loose a lot of coolant all over your engine. make sure the coolant resevore has enough coolant to get sucked back in to the engine or this will take longer. Continue this process until there is no steam coming out, I let mine go until a little liquid coolant starts to bubble out from around the screw. Tighten screw and keep a watch on your temp gage, you may have to do it a couple of times as the coolant forces the air pockets out of the line. If this doesn't solve your problem then I would say check the headgasket.

Where is the rear windshield washer reservoir on my 2006 Subaru forester


Hello, The washer reservoir for the rear is the same as the one for the front. It has two small fluid pumps on the bottom of the reservoir, one for the front and one for the rear. If your rear washer isn't spraying, I would suspect there is a clog somewhere in the wash fluid tube leading back to the nozzle. If you have an air supply with a small tipped air blower, you can usually put a small amount of air through the line to see if it clears. I would advise to gain access to the rear washer tube and disconnect it and introduce the air at that location. Just figured I'd add that bit of diagnosis in case that was your problem. Hope this info helps!

Windshield washer fluid only working on passenger side


nozzle stopped up with wax, or tubing is stopped up, pump motor may be running, but pump isn't. Check for pressure at the pumps. Tubing sometimes comes off or has cracks that let washer fluid escape. Its sounds like a search till you find it type thing. Can't be too much, either a blown fuse, faulty pump/motor, or faulty tubing/clogged nozzle

Where is the fuse to the windshield wiper fluid sprayer on a 1999 Forester Subaru?


Have you tried taking a clothing pin and clearing the spray tip? I've had my WWF nozzles clog on me before, I noticed it when only one side was spraying. I just took a sewing needle and unclogged it, worked fine after that.

For 2001 Forrester Subaru - Front Windshield Washer fuse


If it makes noise, it's not the fuse. Most likely the discharge nozzles are stopped up. Try blowing compressed air into them from the outside.

Windshield washer not working properly


If you have used ANYTHING beside windshield solvent in you reservor, you may have created WAXING from soap in the bottom of washer tank, which clogs pump,lines, and nozzel....take the tank out and wash it..disconnect washer hoses at nozzel and clear with compressed air along with the nozzel...if you use solvent only you may have a worn washer pump or restriction...check those and good luck.....
