Question 99 subaru legacy outback

Ok here it goes. A friend of mine has a 99 subaru outback and needs to have the timing belt and head gasket replaced. I have been searching for a chiltons or haynes manual for his car but can only find one for up to a 98. I am wondering how much difference there is between the 98 and 99 engine? Thanks in advance for any asistance.

You have to find out if the engine is DOHC or SOHC, that would be the only difference between 98 and 99 engines, that I know of and of course what size engine, but i am pretty sure they all were 2.5 liters.

BTW are you talking about the SUS model?

I dont think it is an SUS model. It is a legacy outback hatch back (wagon i think) I know that tunex told him that if his timing belt broke his engine would just shut off and not get ruined. I dont know much about subarus. Thanks for the quick reply.

You probably already know this, but a new timing belt and head gasket replacementment is a huge job.

The legacy outback wagon is a 2.5 engine

Your best bet is to go the subaru dealership and find out what parts you, need (you need the parts number) and then get them online from this place

subaruparts

much cheaper, if you are going to be doing the work yourself.

sorry, I havent done this before, (thank god, knocks on wood) but I have read a lot about this type of thing and how its done online here and in the N/A section of this forms becasue I have a 99 legacy SUS.

Use the search button and type in head gasket and timing belt as your keywords and thousands of links will come up about them.

But an another FYI, you only need to replace the headgaskets if the car is overheating, otherwise its a little unessecary unless you have the engine already out of the car.

I am surprised no one else has chimed in on this besides myself.
