Timing Belt Change Intervals
Posted 11 October 2006 - 06:14 PM
replace the timing belt at 60K miles. My 2000 OBS calls for 105K
before replacing the belt. They are both 2.2 engines, I assume
the same engine. Were there changes made by Subaru, improvments
in belt technonlgy...or whats the reason for the major increase in
mileage before changing belts. What I'm getting to is they are both
the same engine so do I really neeed to do the 90 Legacy at 60K.
I know what the owners manual says,I just wonder what changed.

The 90 won't care if you don't change the belt. It'll just break and that's that. If the 2000's breaks, you could potentially have some major issues that would require engine replacement.

Before 97, many Calif spec belts, once again a different p/n, were 90K or 105K. Calif made that manditory so all mfgr's had to step up to that spec.
No reason you can't put the Calif spec belt on an older Subaru ( 90-96 ).
