It has a timing belt. There's a Youtube on how to replace the timing belt for a 2002 Subaru Forester, if you're a self do'er. Your 2001 should be similar or exact to it.

SOURCE: 2001 subaru forester rear wiper motor replacement

Hi, it is pretty straightfoward (ahem, you know how this can go. depends on whether your wiper arm retaining bolt is frozen and snaps off the shaft or not). First, take a look at your fuse to make sure it is intact. If it is, just gently pop off all of the plastic trim covering the tailgate, and undo screws too as necessary. Then test the connector wires to be sure you are still getting power back there to the motor, I used a $4 test light that I got from AutoZone. Then use a large philips head screwdriver and 10mm socket to remove the whole dang thing.

SOURCE: 2001 subaru forester 225000 kms..how long do they typically last?

Provided the vehicle has been serviced regulary and had good quality oil and filters, theres no reason the car shouldn't get 400,000+ kms. Check its service history, and its oil consumption.

SOURCE: 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.

Hello, I have a 2001 Subaru Forester and have heard that the timing belt should be replaced ahead of the factory maintenance schedule. The vehicle has 70,000 miles. Should I be concerned? Thanks. Scott


The bad thing about Subarus is the close tolerance used in the engines. If the timing belt goes while your driving, it almost will certainly bend every push rod in the head, or worse, costing you 10 times more for repairs. So your taking a gamble whether or not to follow the specs. If you drive it hard, I would take that advice, if not, you should be ok. But still, its a gamble.

Visually check the belt to see if the piece you found was indeed from the belt. If so you should replace it ASAP If you dont you might end up stuck on the side of the road or worse! The belt drives the power steering pump the alternator the A/C and several other things.

Timing belt replacement


The timing belt on this car should done based on which ever comes first recommended mileage or time basis. If this car has the 2.5 litter Engine I would recommend changing it ASAP. The 2.5L engine is What is referred to as an interference engine which means that if the timing belt breaks the pistons will slap the valves rendering the engine useless. Keep in mind a timing belt is made only of rubber and nylon cord it is not uncommon for them to fail before the recommended service intervel
