suprunner posted a topic in 1990 to Present Legacy, Impreza, Outback, Forester, Baja, WRX&WrxSTI, SVXHi all, Recently had the timing belt on my DOHC skip some teeth. Was a brand new belt kit including tensioner. Was a Gates-brand. Well, I reset everything and about 500 miles later I believe it has skipped at least a single tooth, so I've parked it. I will purchase a brand new Subaru OEM belt and tensioner for it. My question centers around parts interchangeability. After perusing through opposed forces: http://opposedforces.com/parts/impreza/us_g11/type_28/engine/timing_belt_cover/ I've noticed that the '00-'07 WRX wagon has a 2.5L motor with timing covers that have timing belt guides for the cam sprockets as well as the crank. Any reason that these shouldn't work on the EJ25D? I'd like to add some additional security to the system. It seems to keep jumping off of the cams on the passenger side. Thoughts and advice will be appreciated. Greg

Part of the timing belt cover was melted by the crank pulley which was rubbing on the timing belt cover. I removed the crank pulley and the timing belt cover. The timing belt seems to be a good condition with only 40K miles since it was last replaced. The timing belt cover is slightly bubbled near where the crank pulley would be. The crank pulley itself has a couple places where there are tiny notches broken away. My first question is, has anyone seen this before? I am trying to figure out the cause of the AC belt failure. Looking at the Alternator Belt, this belt is well worn with cracking and a couple of missing pieces of splines. Now I am in the process of ordering replacement parts. Besides the Alternator and AC belts, and the timing belt cover, do you think I should replace the timing belt cover gaskets? I could take a file and smooth out the tiny notches in the crank pulley or should I replace it too? Thank you in advance for your comments!
