Engine Mechanical problem
2004 Subaru Forester 4 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 105361 miles
My dealer is telling me that at 105k, the timing belt needs to be replaced. They said that when they replace the belt, they replace the belt and the tensioner but that is all. I have a mechanic who will replace the belt cheaper than the dealer but he says that I should also replace the water pump. The dealer when I asked said that the water pump on subarus is usually good and it's mostly on GMs that the water pump needs replacing then. Who is right here?
have the same problem?
