    FF-1 1300G info

    let us all know if you ever find one !
  5. As the title suggests, I'm curious to know what the oil change intervals are on the petrol XV, my petrol forester (turbo) was 7,500 miles and the Diesel XV is 12,000 miles, so I would imagine it falls somewhere between the two, but cannot find any info. I think in America they suggest 7,500 but don't know if we will be any different. Maybe someone with a petrol could let me know what the service booklet says.

    Hi everyone Does anyone have any intel on when the m/y 2019 Forester is coming to Europe/UK? I believe it goes on sale on 1 Oct in North America. It looks a great car - I want one! Cheers

    where it is on the hawk :) thats not whats missing hehe
  11. I would consider the eyesight system good reason not to buy one, too invasive and makes drivers less aware than already are as start to rely on prompts from the system. Other big issue with these systems is faults will be expensive diagnose/fix and potentially dangerous .

  14. Hi, We are currently looking to replace a crv. We have driven a forester 2.0 and an XT. We quite like the XT but it doesn't have the eyesight safety systems, but is fun to drive. Is there anything we should be aware of when looking to buy either of these? We currently only do short commutes in the week, with the longer journeys being at the weekends. cheers Rich

    Timing Belt or full belt/pulley kit?

    If you want be stingy at least inspect each idler gear and the tensioner when strip it and buy what only needed, one that more likely usable is tensioner but the plain idlers and toothed normally have some play or dryness or both. Water pump wants checking too but rare these really need replacing at 90K for a NA road car . I know many insist tensioner must be replaced but actual Subaru guidelines is testing it in spec, obviously if bearing rough or it leaking oil on hydraulic tensioner or it fail the load testing (see SFSM) then needs replacing. With timing belts you almost better off not doing it if not going do it well as bad decisions and work = potential scrap . Dayco belt and japan oem idlers from ICP not that expensive . Whatever you do DO NOT use cheaper sourced parts as that worse than running with old oem .

    no compression after tgv delete

    Did the garage "jack" the throttle body butterfly open when doing the compression test? As if the throttle cable or wiring (if its drive by wire) isn't opening the butterfly ,it won't allow any air in too compress . If it has avcs did you disturb the oil lines or sensors when removing the inlet ? Are you sure it was tgv problems in the first place and not a compression issue ?
