Question about 1997 Subaru Outback
Leaking head gaskets
You have to take a lot of parts off to get to the cylinder heads. Intake manifold..vacuum hoses..sometimes the timing belt. You better get a Haynes or Chilton repair manual. It takes 8 to 12 hours of work. Beats paying $1000 though.

SOURCE: The "outside" of the head gasket
no it will just get wore, however I find it hard to believe the gasket is leaking, are you sure it's the gasket and not the water hoses? normally the pressure is so great it would not be a leak it would be the foutain of youth!

Yes, however both mating surfaces need to be cleaned prior to reassembly. The cylinder head bolts will also need to be torqued to the manufacturers specifications.
