2005 subaru forester timing belt broke

Not good. Its very likely that you have bent some valves on one or both heads. Get a new belt and pulley kit, and install it. By hand, rotate the engine to ensure that NOTHING is jammed. Take the plugs out and do a compression test. If the readings are normal, put the plugs back and start. If not, pull nor or more heads, get them reconditioned nada install new head gaskets.

2006 subaru forester burning oil

never-- I repeat never --use a used car dealer to do repairs on your car
The people employed are seldom qualified mechanics and they only know how to "bodgie" jobs just to get the car ready for a sale
oil will not leak from a head if the engine is running well , but oil will leak from faulty rocker cover gaskets
from your description, I suspect that when the car went in for the head gaskets a clapped out motor was fitted instead ( check engine numbers on the papers )
If you need a motor , there are plenty of good engines from japanese
engine importers
But at best do not have anything to do with that shop as the engine rebuild could be changing the engine back for your original motor

Steeming from exhaust after new radiator fitted

Can only mean that the car has a blown head gasket or two being a Subaru or possible cracks in the heads. The car must have overheated before you put the new radiator in. It is very hard to remove the heads with the engine in the car , easier to do the job with the engine out. The gaskets for subarus are quite expensive. Make sure you have the heads surfaced and pressure checked before reassembly. Sorry about the bad news If this helps Please Vote Jeff

I need a diagram of a 1800 subaru engine as it has water in the oil & i want to change the head gaskets

This engine has been over-heated. Replacing the head gaskets will not correct the prob! The heads will need to be rebuilt. This could cost far more than the car is worth. Sorry

1990 subaru legacy 2.2ltr auto with 189 kms. car heats up and pushes water out from reserve heat thermostat and water water visible in the engine oil and runs smooth.engine...

could be a crack in the cylinder wall on the low side, causing the compression to push the water out and not mix with the oil as its not leaking between oilway and waterway.

head gaskets are a weakpoint on the 2.2 and 2.5 as they are bored out to reach this capacity and this leaves less area for the gasket to bite down on around the cylinders. Fit a WRK steel gasket and get the heads torqued down properly, its a nasty job from an access point of view tho
