1986 Subaru Other Repair Question
1986 Subaru wagon, 4x4
I was driving my Subaru this afternoon when the engine started running rough and losing power fairly quickly. I had it towed to my mechanic who thinks it may the the timing belt.
How big of a job is it to replace the timing belt?
These engines have two timing belts, one for each bank, so if one has failed it will be running on only 2 cylinders. To change both belts should only take about 11/2 -2 Hrs tops. Best to have the tensioner and idler pulley bearings changed at the same time.
