1999 Subaru Liberty GX 2.0 from Australia and New Zealand
Nice car to drive
Discovered a fluid leak, trace it to the gearbox, the washer directly behind the sump plug was an oval shape. Possibly cause by a previous service technician.
This was replaced and the problem was solved.
The engine oil has just been replaced with 10W-30 viscosity
I have noticed that on cold startup, the engine sound is a lot noisier then when at operating temperature. It sounds like a diesel engine, no engine rattles just sounds rough. Is this normal? Could it be the hydraulic lifters, the engine sounds fine when at the operating temperature.
Referring to the operator's handbook the Key less entry system there is no mention of an external light flash to indicate the doors have been locked/unlocked.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
