  1. Sorry - checked and couldn’t find what I was looking for and am sure it’s here ... 2010 Subaru Legacy 3.6 - installing new plugs - OEMS - NGK SILFR6C11 - looks like they come pre-gapped at .044 - does anyone know the OEM specs of what the gap should actually be?   thanks!
  2. Hello again. I ha e a ea81 1.8 engine sitting in my driveway. I removed this engine because i could not get cylinders 2 and 4 to fire. I did replace the engine head gaskets and cleaned the valves in headers and put it back together. When i installed engine back in car i was not able to get it to fire correctly. I have new wires spark plugs rotor and cap and nogo. I did pull the wires from cylinders 2 and 4 and did see a spark in them. Obly reason i know these two cylinders are not working is because the engine will have a terrible shake to it and by plasing my hand below the header were exhaust goes only one side was hot. Could it be that i have a bad distributor even tho i see sparks coming from wires 2 and 4? Thanks.
  3. Hello, me again. I was out doing some winter readying on our 2010 Outback (128,000 miles / 206,000 km). Since we just got it this year I wanted to check the spark plugs to see if I needed to change them before the winter. Open them up and oil in the wells. Alright need to change the seals, going to be a big pain in the butt but can likely do it myself. I had to do it on a 2001 Legacy before so I have the general idea. I think it leaked because there was too much oil. I had checked the oil level after getting it and it was a little high but didn't see any issues otherwise, though there has been a possible few drops on the driveway and when I was under it today to change the oil, the filter was pretty oily. I've been searching the forum for the past bit and see some varying and in a couple instances conflicting advice. That leads me to three questions: 1) How much of a pain is it to change the spark plug tube seals on a 2010 Outback? Any advice? 2) Is there anything else I should change while I'm changing the spark plug tube seals? 3) What else should I check for possible damage from too much oil? This would have been driving for several months. Thank you in advance everyone. I hope nothing is royally screwed up on it!
  4. 1. Will ej25 plugs fir in the ej18? Have some brand new iridiums, would rather not have them sit. 2. I'm getting a whirring style noise with speed. It got a little better when I topped off the rear diff, but I'm worried it may be wheel bearings. Boots are fine. Tires are crap, as are brakes. Should I start with replacing the pads first before trying to get at the bearings? Also, I have nothing in the very back, like no spare, styrofoam or floor. Is the lack of noise insulation through there enough to make a loud whirring noise? Trying to upload a video I took with the noise Thanks - CL Edit: Answer to #1 is yes
