Thanks for all the help

Recommended Posts

This is my first post but I'm not posting to ask a question. I'm posting to say thanks. I recently purchased a 2005 legacy GT with 112000 miles for my daughter. Its a good running car but needed a little help. After reading several articles I decided to do the 100,000 mile service to change the timing belt. With all the help I got here the job went very smooth and the car runs even better than it did before.

Oh dear, make sure she knows how to check the oil and keep it topped off.




Buying a turbocar for a daughter is nice gesture, but, these things can so south very quickly. If she's not gonna be proactive about the maintenance, then you will have to be.

No it's check the oil every week, always keep it topped off.


The first problem is learning how to check the correct oil level.


I, drive to work, shut off engine, open hood, pull dip stick about 3", close hood. 8 hours later, open hood, wipe stick, check oil level.


These cars don't use oil on a consistent basis. it can change from week to week.


Check out the stickys up top of all the forums, lots of info, take notes.
