97 Legacy GT--bad Head Gasket?
Posted 17 February 2006 - 05:35 PM
Does it sound like a head gasket to you guys? Should I have the head gasket, rear main seal, and timing belt done all at once? Should I just junk it and start with something newer? I hate to give up on it because it was been great for 5 years...pretty much just oil and brakes.

I went through h3!! and back, dealing with the used car dealer I got my '97 OBW from. It wouldn't stop overheating, and consequently toasting headgaskets. Two engine swaps and a lot of fuss later, I ended up swapping the radiator out myself. The old radiator had chunks of mineral deposits falling out of it when I tipped it upside down.

buy new ones (pricey) or repack them. i posted a thread on how to repack the timing pulley bearings for zero cost (well the cost of grease and 3 minutes of time). if you're looking to do this job and run it another 100,000 miles, i'd go ahead and do it right if reliability is a concern, which it sounds like it is since you're talking about buying "newer".
