In a 1999 outback with an ej25 dohc motor is that going to have hydraulic or solid lifters?

Also, is there a recommended interval for the replacement of the oil pump?

Do these motors get the TOD like the ea82 motors?

Thanks for the info

Should be solid (shim type "lifters".) Hence, no tick of death. Just piston slap when cold and the occasional head gasket failure.


Dunno about oil pump replacement. They usually last a long time.

You'll never need a pump, just reseal it with a new o-ring Pt# 10991AA001 and some permatex anerobic sealer. And get a new crank seal while you are at it, 806733030. (check/tighten screws holding on plate on the pump while off the car as well.)

The only way the lifters would not be "solid shim" type is if someone swapped in a '95 2.5 (auto only) which was hydraulic.

Valve adjust interval is 100,000 miles, I have had three different engines with burnt valves this year alone...2 DOHC, 1 SOHC. I can only hold suspect the lack of proper adjustment and/or too many long-overdue oil changes. Unless, that is, if anyone has any more insight.
