So I bought an 05 Outback XT today in Baltimore. Rolling into Pittsburgh (on my way back to Spokane, WA) and my turbo goes kaboom. I need to get this thing parked STAT. if there's anyone who can help me find a safe place to park my car and/or a good local Subaru mechanic, I'll be eternally grateful. I'm 2300 miles from home and I need to be to work Wednesday evening. I'm royally boned right now.

If anyone knows someone who can help a Subaru brother out, please let me know.

I can compensate any saviors in cash/beer/hugs/whatever.

davebugs lives just north of pburgh in Apollo and knows many automotive places in the area, message/PM him?

what do you need? 

I don't know what "I need to get this thing parked STAT" means?

 

I live an hour+ away and free time is nearly non-existent mostly due to 3 young children, one just born.

I just meant that i need to park it, rather than continue to drive it and risk getting metal shavings in the intake...

Remove oil feed line screens they plug and stop oil flow to turbo

Unfortunately a common problem with the 05 Legacy models with a turbo.

Good luck with it! And be cautious. It's very common for the motor to go soon after the turbo.
