lumberjesse Posted October 27, 2018 Share Posted October 27, 2018 Hey folks, I recently bought my 2nd Subaru, a 1998 Legacy Outback with the 2.5 and a manual transmission. I'm working out some initial kinks (IACV is sticking, throws a catalytic converter code, shifter is a bit sloppy) and also planning out the next 25K miles of maintenance, and I'm hitting a snag. The car has 260K on the body, and the PO said 70K on a new motor. Reading the receipts (should have been more thorough before purchase) it says some stuff I don't know the meaning of, or what to do with. Receipt: "R and R engine New throwout bearing,NGK Plugs, oil and filter, anti freeze Remove from old to new engine: Timing belt, water pump, covers, intake manifold and components, fron covers, pullies, belts, A/C, ALT, P/S, Radiator and Fang. Paid $1735" I know what everything there stands for, but I'm having a hard time of figuring out what it means for preventative maintenance. Should I interpret an R&R engine to mean it was effectively new when the work was done? Would its mileage have mattered? When should I replace the timing belt and water pump? THANK YOU for any help and clarification you can provide Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
