SOURCE: engine timing for a 1998 subaru forester with a 2.5

Since ignition timing is taken care of by the ECU, I guess you are asking about cam timing.
There are several marks to be aligned and if you get them wrong, you may trash your engine so I am only going to suggest you buy a Haynes service manual that has numerous good pix that show you exactly how to avoid killing your engine. And, unless you have a good-size vice well-mounted, compressing the belt tensioner again is going to give you fits.
The Haynes number you need is 89100 but it is listed only as a manual for the Legacy which uses the same engine but there may be less info that is usable on your '98 forester for which Haynes does not make a specific manual.
The later book that I have, 89101, covers all models from 2000 to 2006.

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: My 98 subaru forester is over heating

The head gasket may be a problem, but it may be simpler, if your thermostat is on the bottom of the engine.
If coolant came out when the thermostat was changed, there should be a screw, probably plastic, that goes into the radiator, or near the inlet hose, at the top. This screw is used to release steam when car overheats to restore the vaccum. Turn car on and let idle to overheating temperature. NOW PROTECT YOURSELF FROM GETTING A STEAM BURN. Turn the screw very slowly until steam starts to come out, don't unscrew all the way or you will loose a lot of coolant all over your engine. make sure the coolant resevore has enough coolant to get sucked back in to the engine or this will take longer. Continue this process until there is no steam coming out, I let mine go until a little liquid coolant starts to bubble out from around the screw. Tighten screw and keep a watch on your temp gage, you may have to do it a couple of times as the coolant forces the air pockets out of the line. If this doesn't solve your problem then I would say check the headgasket.

I have a 1999 Subaru Forester. I recently had the ac/heater blower motor replaced. It was only blowing on high so I replaced the resistor. Now it is blowing the fuses. Any suggestions??? Thanks


check that the wires for the motor are on correctly and that the loom has not jammed and cut when replacing the motor. There is a dead short in the wires after re-assembly of the system

2000 subaru forester ignition coil wiring


Are there any other possible problems, or you are just not receiving spark at all now?

The coilpack could be dead and just need replaced. If you have a voltmeter or a test light, check the wiring on both sides of the coilpack harness to make sure it is receiving power.
I don't believe Subaru used ignitors past '99, but if they did, your should be located on the firewall behind the throttle body. Make sure it's plugged in and receiving power.

Coil packs do go bad from time to time. I had to replace mine in my
'98 Impreza a while back.

Goodluck!

98 forester blows oil 2.5


You have a problem with a gasket, basically the gasket on the head of valves, then you only have to change the gasket, this a common problem when the gasket is broke or burned.
