You said the earlier generation 4eats had problems. How do I know if mine is an earlier generation?
Regarding the valve spring that wears out - Can it be replaced w/o major work? If so, how would one know that it's wearing out?

When I say early gen.....I mean mainly 90-92....possibly up to 94. They have an external filter add-on kit, it's just below the battery on the frame rail.
I don't think you can change the spring/valve without taking out the valve body.....in any case....it's probably a major case.
I really don't 100% for sure.....but I am pretty sure.

Rebuild and replacement costs vary significantly even when handled by dealerships. SVX Network site shows figures of $1700-3000 for a rebuild and $2200-$4600 for a Subaru installed reman. The next step for mine (trans #6, first five destroyed by reason OTHER than heat ie, towing, emission check on 2 wheel dyno, above noted recall) is a manula transmission swap. Small Car, a shop on the west coast has converted a couple of cars so far and has also installed the EG33 into VW Vanagon Syncro's. There site is www.smallcar.com Very cool stuff.
