96 Subaru Legacy Outback – Timing Belt and Rear Main Seal Repair

Did I ever express to you how much we love this model of the Subaru Legacy? 2.5 liter motor, great suspension, and a responsive all wheel drive makes this one of my favorite cars to work on.

Our customer Ed brought this car in for a timing belt and water pump replacement. The water pump and cam seals were leaking, causing the car to lose coolant. Here is a picture after we had taken the radiator assembly out of the car.

Upon inspection, we also found a real main seal leak that had been gushing oil for quite some time.

The shortest path to replacing the rear main seal was plucking out the motor. We figured since we were doing the work of removing the front side assembly of the motor, disassembling everything else was much more work to do. More pictures to come. For now, stay tuned!
