Got this car for a steal knowing that it needed a bit of work, and that it might even be not worth fixing. Cheap enough tho, I could easilly make my money back if I had to part it.
Being cheap, I want to get it on the road for as little $$$ as possible... As far as what it needs, I have no speedo/ odo working, ABS light and it needs a head gasket or 2. Oil appears to be clean, but under the cap does show just a bit of milkshake.
I know that the Speedo/ ABS light is likely the VSS because it needs to register 8 MPH for the ABS system to check ( as per the owners manual )
The engine has probably cooked more than once, so I'm thinking replace rather than repair, and where needing help comes in. I have located several 1995 Subaru Legacy 2.2L's in yards with just over 100k. I know they fit and work with the 10 mins of research that I have done, but is there any road blocks that I will run into, beyond the charcoal canister lines? My car is a '99 Legacy SUS Limated with the 2.5L DOHC, which I understand is a Phase 1 engine as is the '95 2.2
How involved is an engine swap in a Subaru?
