Question about 1994 Subaru Legacy Outdoor

1 Answer

Need to change Head Gaskets myself

I'm thinking about buying a 1994 Subaru Legacy Station Wagon. However, it needs both of the head gaskets replaced. It is far too expensive to take it to a shop, and I don't trust Auto Shops to be straight up about how difficult it is. So, if anyone could give me a basic run though of how it's done, or if you have lots of free time, really great instructions on how to do it. OR, if there's no way that an inexperienced person could get the job done, tell me that too. -Rosemary

Yes you can do it first of go look at the car look under the hood and find out what liter of the engine is and then go to the libaray and there you can get the print out you need for the job also have the cylinder heads check for cracks as well.

My 91 Subaru Legacy keeps overheating. When the needle starts to rise, it blows cold air instead of heat. Had a faulty hose replaced recently and it fixed the problem for a few days, but she's acting up...


if there are no leaks then they have problems with head gaskets blowing compression into coolant when cold remove rad cap fill with coolant run engine then rev up engine look for bubbles in coolant if so then replace head gaskets

I got a 99 Subaru Legacy 2.2L Sedan. Recently hit and deer and blew head gaskets, overheated motor and had to replace. Everything starts smooth but when the car heats up, it acts like it's not getting gas....


I think you need to check your fuel pressure. If it's not between 41 & 45psi, you need to replace the fuel regulator. OBD doesn't always give the exact response to enable acurate diagnosis. Try this anyway, get back if still a problem.

2001 subaru legacy leaking coolant from head gasket......


Your mechanic is ok with saying that...however you should replace both head gaskets. This can get costly if you take it to have it done somewhere, but if you use a manual from your local library or buy one from your local auto parts store, its a much more cost effective way of fixing it. You are ok to drive it, be sure to check your fluid before you do. I would look into getting these changed within the next few weeks.

Thanks for using Fixya!

Temperature Gauge


Sounds like a bad thermostat, or blown head gaskets. replace the thermostat with one from the dealer. If you still have the problem one or both head gaskets are bad.

Both head gaskets have to be replaced and the heads need to be resurfaced, be sure you go thru the torque specs and sequence correctly, it is a strange process, but has to be done. subaru puts out a product called cooling system conditioner, it's advised to install this.
