Unless you have really high milage on this vehicle the pump is not likely to go. Pump on front of engine and if it leaked would run down front and sprinkle towards center. However a weak heater hose or cooling hose clamp could give you the same results.
Before you spens a fortune ( cause this job is basically a timing belt job with a water pump, and eng seals ) Have the vehicles cooling system pressure tested for leaks. The techn will know how to check pump if he thinks its bad.

Leak behind water pump in 2000 Subaru legacy gtb


A leak behind the water pump is usually where the pump meets the engine block. It may require a new gasket, but you will have to remove the timing belt covers to get in there and inspect.

Is there anyone who has added turbo on a 1999 Subaru Legacy GT 2.5 liter?


I would do a Google search on this. If you add a turbo you must make many other changes to the engine management system, bigger capacity fuel injectors, hight capcity fuel pump, different cylinder head gaskets improvements to the transmission and so on. You can't just bolt it on.

Hi Andy here not sure if you can help be email but i thought i would give it a shot!! i have a 96 gt legacy ej20h, twin turbo, Manuel, bg5, tried to save myself some money and just did cam belt water...


I have a ej25 in the back yard, I'm going to go and look at it, OK, I'm back, I found the timing mark on the crank pulley pointing straight up at the little notch in the casting, and the number one piston at top dead. The heads are out on it so I can't tell you about that. Hope this helps. I know it is hard to get in there, even to do the spark plugs, let alone the belt and water pump.

If your going to do or get this done you need to replace the camshaft seals crankshaft seal and water pump plus the idlers and tensioner.
