Question about Subaru Cars & Trucks

Open Question

I have a 2008 Subaru outback 2.5L Turbo throwing code P0018. The motor was just rebuilt. Double checked the timing belt, seems fine, swapped the cam timing solenoids to see if it would throw the code

Also, checked the filter on the banjo bolt on bank 2 feeding the solenoid.

SOURCE: Starter or solenoid issue on '98 Subaru Outback Legacy

The starter is separate from the soleniod; It could be a part called the bendix on the starter itself. If you can remove it, take it to a auto parts store- they will check it for free.

SOURCE: EGR Flow Malfunction, and sometimes a Cylinder 4 Misfire.

How does the oil look? Is it milky or is there any discoloration? Is any moisture or steam vapor coming out of the exhaust pipe? The EGR fault is most likely being triggered from the cylinder missfire. Sounds like you might have a head gasket blown, and/or a cracked or warped cylinder head from the overheating.
You can run a compression test to help determine this.
Good luck...i hope this helps you troubleshoot the problem.

P0740 Torque Converter Clutch Circuit Malfunction Driving the vehicle with this problem and not attending to it asap may cause further damage. When you feel a problem and or see the engine light on, use your head wisely and have a reputable transmission shop go through a complete diagnostic procedure, in most cases this is a fluid problem, but since you serviced the trans that can be ruled out, if you haven't changed the TCC solenoid yet do so, I was unclear about what you replaced, I assume the shift solenoid's, if you have replaced the TCC solenoid then the problem is either in the wiring to the trans or inside the trans in the torque converter clutch circuit or the torque converter itself, which is a all to common failure in these Vans, if the TCC is ok replace the torque converter, that of course requires removing the trans, this job will require a lift, it is just about impossible on the ground.

Go after the Egr valve, if its sticking then there is a vacumn leak.

Cam shaft sensor code p0340 replaced still no start


You will get a cam shaft code if the timing belt is broken. This could be you issue. I would check the timing belt before you go any further.
It can damage your engine if you keep trying to start it.

Here's a link to your P0018 code and causes,I had a 2004 Tundra,bought new,paid 31 grand,water pump started leaking,took to Toyota dealer,they put new timing belt and pump on and had no problem,only had 50,000 miles on it,but these vehicles are known for water pumps going bad.It cost me 1100.00 dollars.Sold truck,had 70,000 miles on it,had the 4.7 engine,had 2 oxygen sensors replaced by Toyota,was covered under warranty.The fuel injectors got clogged up,Toyota charged 99 bucks,it lost power and afterwards it would fly again.I would take to Toyota and let them check it out,here's the link I promised. https://www.obd-codes.com/p0018

2000 subaru outback 2.5 L engine problems


you need to pull the timing covers to see if it has a broken timing belt and find out for sure if it is an interferance engine, could be a good deal if it just needs T-belt.

How do u put timing belt for 2001 subaru outback


This is not your average timing belt replacement due to being a double overhead cam that is also an interferance fit.First remove cooling fans.2-Loosen drive belts and remove.3-Remove crank pully.4-Remove timing covers.You will see 4 cam sprockets.Theses sprockets contain single and double referance marks.You will be using the double referance marks.Rotate engine until the double referance marks are facing each other.This is to be done the same way that the American autos timing Chain systems are done but you will have 2 small double lines to line up not dots.The next step is the most important step and is of utmost imortance.THE CAMSHAFT HAVE TO BE LOCKED IN PLACE--FAILURE TO DO SO CAN RESULT IN BENT VALVES.The cam sprocket holders can be bought or rented.You can make your own as well by making 2 wedges with bolt through the middle.Slip in between sprockets and tighten enough to hold sprockets.Do not use excessive torque while tightening wedges sprockets are not made of steel but rather a composite material.Next you will have to remove the tenioner.The tensioner has to be retracted and pin istalled to hold in retracted position.The tension device has to be retracted with care or will be damaged.You can not exceed 50 pounds pressure on the plunger.The simplest method is to reract while still in vehicle, it takes 15 minutes to properly retract the plunger.By pulling up on the tensioner by hand with about 18 pounds of force --50 will be exerted at the plunger.When fully retracted insert pin to hold in reracted position.Next check to make sure that cam wedges are holding and no sprocket are trying to move,when satisfied remove one of the rollers at the bottom on the side where you left hand would be standing in front.Pull off belt.Replacement belt will have referance marksone line will go to crank sprocket face up others will line up with other sprocket marks.Reinstall roller followed by tensioner then pull pin you have holding tenioner retracted.Remove wedges.Reinstall covers fans belts.Do not be intimitaded by this replacement.Everything is very easy to get to.Be sure cams are locked and that damage is not done to tensioner and it is straight forward.

2000 Subaru Outback wont start.. no fuel.


Are your injectors firing into the engine? You can buy a test kit to double check that. Is there spark at the plugs?

I had the same problem sorta with my civic it turns out after doing timing belt water pump, and many gaskets i had a huge vaccum leak.

Also check your fuel lines to see if they are loosing pressure somewhere

Is there a timing belt or chain in a 2004 Subaru Outback wagon? If it is a belt, at what mileage should it be changed?


The 2.5L engine has a timing belt and it should be replaced at 105K. The 3.0L engines have a timing chain and are not serviced regularly.

Timing belt


all marks need to be aligned to 12 o'clock driver cam should align with notch in cover,crank sprocket also at 12 o'clock there is a straight line on reluctor of crank gear ,this line matches a notch on the oil pump where the crank sensor fits,right cam at 12 line should match camcase where it meets cylinder head

Oil leaking from front of motor.


Being it is a 97 outbac, I believe you have the EJ25 Duel over head cam Boxer motor, Very good motor. If i am correct you have 5 places that most likely could be the leak. THe crank pulley, in center, Or either of the 4 cam shafts. You will have to look for more signs of the leak. If leaking from the cams you will usualy see the oil on the iside of the pulleys them selves. The crank seal on the other hand generally runs down the center of the block.Please be very careful to check your timing marks on your pulleys before you start it, due to the belt posibly slipping from what you had said. The crank has a small hash line that points up to a mark in the block The top pulleys on both sides have a sigle line that points to a notch straight up on the cover and double lines that point straght down at double lines on the lower pulleys. And the lower pulleys also have a single line that point to a notch outward that is on the cover. Hope this helps and have a good day.
