2009 diesel forester oil leak


Recommended Posts

Hi i'm new to owning subarus and have previously just run around in cheap second hand cars which was fine until i spotted this car relatively cheap and look sound. Until easter weekend when is sounded a little rough and didn't idle to well almost sounded like running on 3. It still drives fine but i now have an oil leak at the rear of the engine and oil splatters over the rear of the car. Obviously i now think all is not right. Does anyone no if this is the begining of the end for the engine? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I've read a lot of horror stories over the last week or two so I'm preparing my self for the worst. Having said that i don't want to throw good money after bad. I may have to consider drawing a line under it and scraping as a runner before it pops at least I'd get some cash back!!  Thanks for the info.
