Yes they have a timing belt and should be changed every 60k. now honestly everyone is different but ill tell ya what subaru are the easiest and simplist to work on almost nothing to them and they run forever.but that is my opinion.ah prices all pending where you live but i wouldn't charge more then $300-350 to change one.it is about 3 hours to change for sohc and 4 for dohc estimate about $80-100 for most shops now a days.The belt runs about $50-60 bucks but sometimes pending mileage i would change out the belt tensioner they run about 100 buck so be prepared. but youll prolly never have to change it again though.like i said they last for ever!!!

After changing the idler bearing on my subaru legacy 91 wagon compression is low in the nr 1 and 2 cylinder the car wont start, timing was jumped as the bearing failed but appears to be correct as repaired


I assume that you mean the cambelt idler bearing.Ok if you are sure that the timing is correct for all cams(DOHC)?.Then the problem may be bent valves caused by the bearing collapse allowing the cams to go out of timing and cause valve strike.
I would recheck the timing,ensuring all marks line up precisely,the only one that should look 1/2 a tooth out is the crank.Genuine belts are always preferred for these as they have all the markings on the belt to align all the cams and crank,some other suppliers do not have this
I hope that this helps you,or get back to me with your findings.

Automotive problem. 1991 Subaru Legacy C


Lubricant may not resolve it sounds like it could be your water pump froze up. Look to see if it is turning. Even if it turns it still could be bad.Usally the first sign of it going bad. Stop by your local auto parts store to see if they agree.

Change cam belt on 1995 legacy


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.
If its a quad cam you might just want to leave it to the pro's........
