Engine Mechanical problem
2003 Subaru Forester 4 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 63000 miles
Near 58K mileage, a Subaru dealer did the left side gasket repair under warranty. I paid $700 for right side gasket, water pump and timing belt. I discovered they did not change the oil or oil filter when the work was performed. Regardless of make/model, is changing oil and checking for contaminants considered a critical step when changing head gaskets or when the work was done as stated above?
I'll post as a free question, then come back to the experts.
