Found out the timing cover had come off to replace the oil pan from a minor accident a year ago. (Had red RTV around the cover).
They had hit a tree, new bumper and new oil pan, no damage to radiator/support etc.

Well enough negatives. Do you like it or what? :cool:
Well, that was actually good news because no one could figure out if/why the timing cover had been off!
This thing is great. Cruises 80 effortlessly, will hold 70 up fair hills without a downshift, and I can't wait for some snow.
Except for the small ding in the fender, there is not one thing that doesn't look showroom on this thing. I mean, its minty.
Bought it from the dealer where it had been sold, and always serviced.

Those things are awsome. I have a few customers that just drive them hard with well over 200,000 miles and neglect them sooooooo bad and they just keep running.
I'm sure the fact it holds 6 bloody quarts of oil helps!

Did they ever change the timing chain on those higher mileage H6's?

The subaru literature has no interval.
So, pipe up those with 1st hand experience!
