Head Gasket Oil & Coolant Leaks

Certain Subaru vehicles manufactured in the late 90s and turn of the century are notorious for head gasket leaks. The most commonly affected makes from this time are the Outback, Legacy G.T., Forrester, and Impreza R.S. Each is equipped with a four cylinder 2.5L engine with a tendency to develop a leaking head gasket.

You may have a failed head gasket if you experience the following:

  • Overheating engine
  • White Smoke

The first sign of a blown head gasket is an oil weep. Overtime, this weep turns into a full leak and coolant begins to seep out and mix with the motor oil. If the head gasket leak goes uncorrected, the Subaru will overheat or blow white exhaust smoke.

What do I do next: The service technicians at Kruger Auto Repair are aware of Subaru head gasket problems. We identify head gasket problems early and repair them before leaks cause expensive damage to your vehicle.

Catalytic Converter Problems

The following are indicative of catalytic converter problems:

  • Shuddering / Stuttering & Vibrations
  • Stalling / Loss of Power
  • Decrease in Fuel Economy
  • Check Engine P0420 Code

Some Subaru vehicles (common in 1999-2014 model year vehicles) have a tendency to develop catalytic converter problems. Your Subaru may display a P0420 code (Catalytic Converter Efficiency Below Threshold). This means one of the oxygen sensors isn't working properly or another failure has occurred.

What do I do next: Schedule an appointment with Kruger Auto Repair. Our service technicians are familiar with specialty Subaru services including P0420 diagnostics, clogged catalytic converters, bad O2 sensors, and catalytic converter replacement.
