  1. one option is to get a price from KBB and deduct the cost of putting in an engine
  2. I think the 8.7 Volts at the small pin of the starter is your issue. Take a 1/4" female spade connector and crimp it to a 10-12 guage wire and then touch the other end (strip some of the insulation) to the positive terminal of your battery
  3. Thanks for letting us know. I had a 2004 Forester that the airbag light would come on if the seat was moved. Disconnect, reconnect always took care of it
  4. Here is a link to the file http://share.subiefiles.com/subiefiles/technical reference/official/Wheel Bearing Installation Guide.pdf I can't upload it as it is too large a file and since it it protected I can't optimize it
  5. My 99 OBW has 560,000 miles. Not sure what will give out first, second engine, second transmission or body from rust rot
  6. Coolant being displaced from radiator to overflow is a clear indication of head gasket issues (ask me how I know)
  7. I would get a used one from a pull and pay yard if you have one close to you. Aftermarket rebuilt units seem to be of dubious quality based on others comments in previous posts. At some point Subaru stopped selling rebuild kits but I don't recall which years are affected.
  8. Best option is a pull and pay auto wrecker or a used part from an auto wrecker. Cheap Chinese ones from chain auto parts stores don't have a good reputation as they can cause vibrations in idle. Front or rear?
  9. You can also disconnect the negative battery terminal for 5 minutes to clear the code. If it is a continuing fault (check engine light comes on again) take it to a chain auto parts store to get the code read (make sure to get the PXXX number) and come back here for help.
  10. Pin out info here https://forums.nasioc.com/forums/showpost.php?p=36208128&postcount=9 A good resource is ae64.com for Subaru radio wiring info
  11. Go to https://parts.subaru.com put in your VIN and it will tell you which part number you need.
  12. Thanks for letting us know that the fix was
  13. And if the Airbag light is ON the airbags WILL NOT deploy in an accident
