Re: Can I put an engine block heater in my '99 Subaru...
99 Subarus with the cold weather package had a block heater from the factory. The cold weather package included heater seats, heated mirrors, and a block heater. The block heater was a replacement for one of the screw in plugs, you could probably get one from a Dealer or junkyard.

Yes, the engine long block is the same, any "EJ" engine will bolt up to any "EJ" transmission. I would advise you to look at the EGR setup on each engine, some had a tube that ran down to the drivers side cylinder head and some didn't. That could be a problem, at that point you would have to block of the extra port depending on if you run into one did and one didn't have an EGR tube. I would use the intake off of the engine that is already in the car, along with the cam and crank sensors. You might have to swap the oil pressure sensor and possibly the coolant sensors, the only reason for that is because the different years sometimes used different style connectors on sensors.
Usually, if you shut the heater off, then the temperature will climb. The interior heater will actually assist in cooling the engine's coolant. Subaru head gaskets rarely ever fail by the way. First, pressure test the cooling system and make sure you have no leaks.Also check the radiator cap for condition and fitment.Then check and/or replace the engine thermostat. Subarus are generally speaking, extremely reliable vehicles and don't often show these types of issues.
This depends on the year model, as it might need more than just an engine swap......it may require a new engine ecu, and wiring harness etc..........you did not state the year model so i cannot give you a proper 100 % answer !!
hi yes ticking in early model subarus is very a common valve/lifter prob in most cases a decent oil change or anti ticking treatment can quieten it or stop the noise altogether however in some cases the noisy part may be damaged beyond repair and need to be replaced
Probably a short or loose connection between battery and starter motor, or on either end of cables. Id look there before swapping out starter.On cold days you might put a heater under car for a few hours before using it,do this carefully as to avoid a car fire, or look into a block heater for your engine.
