Foot1647 Posted June 8, 2018 Share Posted June 8, 2018 (edited) Hi everyone, I just acquired my first Subaru after my trusty '97.5 Explorer V8 I paid $1k for 8 years ago just died a month ago. I just got an '05 Legacy 2.5i Limited with 225k miles and a rebuilt tranny. I have already done a few things myself since purchase. To preface this inquiry I live in an apartment complex that forbids any mechanical work involving fluids (Oil changes, coolant, ETC.). Before I moved in here 3 years ago I guess someone had messed up and had an oil spill in a storm drain that caused EPA issues. So they just banned it all out. I can do other things myself such as: *I changed Spark Plugs (NGK (5463) FR5AP-11 Laser Platinum). *Changed both Alternator + AC Belts (Bondo Brand). *Oil change and filter at my local Lithia Subaru dealer. *Cleaned the MAF Sensor, it was super gunked up. *Air intake filter. *Cabin Filter (that was fun to figure out!). Next is: *Timing Belt most definitely. *Suspension *Brakes and Pads and flush of system. *Coolant system cleaning (its DARK green when I got it) What I need to know: *What are the biggest issues with this car? *What are the easiest way to prevent the most common issues? *My foglights don't work: -Fuse is 100% functioning, swapped and replaced. -Dash Indicator for Fogs comes on when I use switch. -Relay does click when I turn on. -Both bulbs are brand new, replaced myself. Thank you! Edited June 11, 2018 by Foot1647 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
