Where in Massachusetts are you?

If you were to magically know someone with a 4 poster lift and garage, would you want to pull the oil pan and simply replace the oil pickup with a killer B one?

(hint....my location and I have a lift)

Haverhill/methuen area.
But I would love to take the opportunity to do this. But is it nessisary to replace it? Or could we just check it out

I've read through this whole post many times reading all of the opinions. It's not just one post. Just easiest one to locate being on page one.

So whats your plan if the pickup is indeed cracked, and your car is now on somebody's lift with the oil pan removed? You gunna drive home on a cracked pickup? You gunna leave your car on someone's lift for a week?

Good point.
If the oil pickup even has the slightest crack the oil like would come on?

Indeed. And I actually didn't see anything about that. I did see that maybe there's to much oil so it's masking the crack.. But I've gotten an oil change so it can't be. Oil doesn't just fill in a crack either.

And how much is a killer b oil pickup tube

Yes my dad said the same thing... So being said it would definitely lose pressure sending the oil light to light up

If someone with a lift is offering to check out your car you should seriously consider it. In fact, if I were you I would do this:

1. I would buy a replacement pickup (If a better than stock one exists than I would buy that)
2. Take it to the person who is offering to drop your oil pan. (Get it TOWED, don't drive it)
3. Buy them lots of food and/or beer.
4. Change the damn thing.
5. Offer that person extra $$$ and buy all your belts and other maintenance items and change all that as well.
6. Repeat step 3.
7. Enjoy your car

The reason why I say this is because I have owned MANY 10+ year old cars and preventative maintenance is the best way to go with something this old.

I understand. But honestly. With the money I have I probably shouldn't have even bought this car. But I do work a full time job so I just have to save and pay at the same time.

And I'm willing to get the pickup checked out at his shop. But I cannot have it towed there. It's an hour away and easily 150$ towing it there.
I only got basic AAA they tow 3 miles for free.

Thats the common trend with bugeye WRXs lately. People buy them and problems surface they cant afford to fix.

This post is worth your weight in gold. I wish I lived near Jack, he's really putting himself out there for you.

Love. It's what makes a Subaru a Subaru.

I went through that experience with my 99 Honda Prelude I bought while in college. After the engine went the car sat for about two years while I finished college and found a real job to be able to afford to fix it.
