I may be buying a 2007 subaru legacy 2.0L station wagon.. It has done 197,000 km and its cambelt is due to be changed.He's offered it for $3400NZ is it worth buying or will i end up losing my money.


buying any second hand car is a risk of loosing your money
check for rust in the body and subframes as if the shell is no good , then it will be a waste
take the car to someone that does car inspections and get a report on the condition and then decide on what you want to do
timing belts here cost around $900.00 aud to replace as a good mechanic will do the belt , replace idlers and adjusters and the crank and cam shaft seal/s
oil is very bad for a belt so if the seals are not done , expect about 1/2 the distance on a new belt
at that distance , it will be on the second belt and to make sure, all that I have referred to should be replaced

I have a 1991 Subaru legacy wagon 5 speed and a 1993 Subaru legacy wagon automatic I was wondering can I use the 1991 wagon for a full manual swap


Yes these cars are the same as far as parts go.
You will need to change some wiring on the automatic car for the manual swap to work without changing the wiring harness.

I have a 1991 subaru legacy wagon,2.2L,16 valve. It was running in a parking lot and shut down like someone turned the key off. I've changed the computer,ingnition mod,coil pack-no help! I'm not...


hi it can but its very unlikely have you replaced or checked the cam sensor at front passenger side of motor, if that is worn it will kill all the power and spark

Do Subaru Legacy 1991, have cam belts that need reg replacing


yes they have a timing belt and should be changed every 60k. now honestly everyone is different but ill tell ya what subaru are the easiest and simplist to work on almost nothing to them and they run forever.but that is my opinion.ah prices all pending where you live but i wouldn't charge more then $300-350 to change one.it is about 3 hours to change for sohc and 4 for dohc estimate about $80-100 for most shops now a days.The belt runs about $50-60 bucks but sometimes pending mileage i would change out the belt tensioner they run about 100 buck so be prepared. but youll prolly never have to change it again though.like i said they last for ever!!!

Sounds like you have a broken belt for the alternator and power steering.

Water dumping


i do not know, but stop using the car until you fix it. If you overheat the turbo, it will be damaged beyond repair,and it is extremely costly to substitute.

Automotive problem. 1991 Subaru Legacy C


Lubricant may not resolve it sounds like it could be your water pump froze up. Look to see if it is turning. Even if it turns it still could be bad.Usally the first sign of it going bad. Stop by your local auto parts store to see if they agree.
