Stranded in Pittsburgh w/blown turbo. Please help!

Recommended Posts

So I bought an 05 Outback XT today in Baltimore. Rolling into Pittsburgh (on my way back to Spokane, WA) and my turbo goes kaboom. I need to get this thing parked STAT. if there's anyone who can help me find a safe place to park my car and/or a good local Subaru mechanic, I'll be eternally grateful. I'm 2300 miles from home and I need to be to work Wednesday evening. I'm royally boned right now.

 

If anyone knows someone who can help a Subaru brother out, please let me know.

509-953-614one

I can compensate any saviors in cash/beer/hugs/whatever.

davebugs lives just north of pburgh in Apollo and knows many automotive places in the area, message/PM him?

what do you need? 

I don't know what "I need to get this thing parked STAT" means?

 

I live an hour+ away and free time is nearly non-existent mostly due to 3 young children, one just born.

Unfortunately a common problem with the 05 Legacy models with a turbo.

 

Good luck with it! And be cautious. It's very common for the motor to go soon after the turbo.
