HEAD GASKET REPAIR
Do to the design of the Subaru Boxer Engine being horizontally opposed, it has gained the reputation of being prone to head gasket leaks. To combat this problem there are a few key facts that can help prevent this issue and keep your Subaru running great for years to come.
1. Do not use anything other than Subaru OEM coolant. All coolants are not compatible with Subaru’s, and most aftermarket coolants can be corrosive to the head gasket and some parts of the engine.
2. Follow the service manual on when you should have your coolant exchanged.
