Re: To Rebuild or To Buy a Reman 2.5 NA

So does "Obviously, Yes. It gets done all the time." mean it is possible to rebuild the Subaru Engine and have a reliable engine cheaper than just buying a rebuilt engine from a reputable engine rebuilder, or vice versa? In my neck of the woods we still see more Isuzu's than Subaru's... I have a 2w...

Re: To Rebuild or To Buy a Reman 2.5 NA

Obviously, Yes. It gets done all the time. The other forum I am involved with is Isuzus (kind of a dying breed). There is a guy on there who initially was apprehensive about changing valve cover gaskets, now he's rebuilt TWO Isuzu 2.6 engines. It can be done. There are a few quirks about the Subaru...

Re: To Rebuild or To Buy a Reman 2.5 NA

What were you looking for? The question you asked is a "6 - half a dozen" question. Who would be doing the work? If you're towing the car to a shop and saying "rebuild this engine", you'd better have a fat wallet - you're paying for R&R, tear down, cleaning, machining, and assembly etc, etc. $$$$$ ...

Re: O2 Sensor Diagnostics Question(s)

The code for circuit high means it's turned on and rather than seeing the voltage drop from flipping the switch, it stays the same. You should see 12v on the power line with the key on and ground on the other wire. the sensor heater should have a few ohms but be neither shorted nor open. Sorry, don...

Which would be the best choice for the money spent.

Re: 1st Time Baja Owner here with Questions????

Thanks Guacamole, I was hoping there would be folks like anarchy and you here. Te information y'all provide will make my life much easier... In regards to the axle, the plan would be to replace the whole assembly since I do not know how long the boot has been torn and it is just easier. I was just ...
