Default Head gasket sealant

I just put a brand new '06 EJ25 into my MY'00 wagon. I didn't buy it from the dealer, so I won't be getting any TSB's from them.

Do the new engines need the head gasket sealant, or have they fixed this problem?

If I need this sealant, is there a generic version? My local Subaru dealer probably doesn't have it.

If they don't have it, they should be shot . SOA635071 is the part number for one bottle.

Hi Brian. I'm dealing with Subaru of Taiwan, not SOA... slightly different kettle of fish.

Well, I just searched and found the TSB which says they fixed the problem in 2002, so by that count I don't need it. If anyone knows different, please speak up.

Garie, I live in Taiwan

Some aftermarket parts are cheaper here than in the US, as is JDM grey market OEM goodness. Some parts are about the same, but I've found most OEM stuff is cheaper over there. Other parts seem to be made completely from unobtainium...

I'd say over a given basket of genuine parts you'd find Brian here (North Ursalia) to be a much better deal than SOT, and his service is second to none. If you were after a cheap set of headers or fart can or some no-name brake pads, Taiwan would be the place to shop.

I think an email to www.subaru.com is in order. I was emailed by Subaru that the "coolant conditioner" should be used with subaru antifreeze with all 2.5L engine of ALL years. eddie
