So I got a 99 outback wagon, it had bad head gaskets, blowing water out of the radiator. so I got the car, pulled the engine, did the head gaskets and timing belt set etc. I did not take the heads in, I checked them with a machine straight edge, and feeler gauge. Assembled and it ran for 4 months.
Now it is blowing water out of the exhaust so what do I do now?
I do have a car with the front crashed, that I hope the engine is good in it.
I can either pull and try and fix this engine again, what did I miss?
I can just transplant the engine from the wrecked car,
I can pull from the wrecked car and do the headgaskets and move the timing set to the other engine, But what did I miss on the 1st time I did this, and will I make the same mistake again?
I used felpro gaskets
I would prefer not to change to a 2.2 engine.
This car is being driven by my daughter who just graduated college.
