P0130----- 02 sensor circuit on bank #1 sensor #1
P0171------System too lean bank#1
The oxygen sensor on bank #1 needs a new one. If you have a V6 engine, the 02 sensor is screwed into the exhaust pipe up near the exhaust manifold on the same side #1 spark plug is, that's bank #1
I don't have my manual at the moment, so I can't tell you exactly where it is.
The sensor down by the catalytic converter is sensor #2 you don't want that one.

Does the 2001 subaru forester have timing belt or chain

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.

AWD went out in my 1998 Subaru Forester?

This recently happened to my 98 Subaru Legacy Outback.
My problem is in the rear differential. May be the same for you.
When making a turn, the car sounds like a Star Wars T.I.E. Fighter. The outside wheel is not turning fast enough to keep up with the inside wheel or vice versa. AWD is disengaged and car is currently operating on Front WD. I was told this is fine to drive this way.
