2002 outback ltd. 208,000 km's. Bought it 2 years ago with 180,000 km's. Had timing belt/water pump/tensioners/pulleys/cam seals done right away as I didn't have any proof that it had been done.
I am taking it in for it's 5,000 km oil change, e-test (gov't rip off), put on the winter toyo's and since I didn't know if the rad had ever been flushed and refilled asked if this would be recomended. My mechanic said if I wasn't having any heating issues and I don't know if it has ever been done it might be best to not flush it as if it is the first time it has been flushed you could stir up alot crud that might end up causing problems down the road. He said he would check all the hoses to make sure they were in good shape and test the coolant.
I trust him but figured I would ask on here to see if anyone agrees or disagrees with this advice.
