I ended up replacing the caliper pistons since they were corroding and causing my sticking issues. Posted pics before about it.

And Carlson quiet glide clips are fantastic!

Well, I'm bored. Too bad this car is pretty reliable so I have nothing to work on while I'm stuck at home mostly doing nothing.

I know, would be a good time for a project, I might do my pvc that I bought a while ago. I have things I could replace but they are still working fine just starting to make a little noise.

I drive a lot less with my new job so I wonít be thrashing it so much.

For those of you bored Mr. Subaru picked up a crosstrek and he has a video on some common maintenance items.

I think he will do more in the future but itís nice to see these step by step.

In this video he does PCV, serpentine belt, and a few others like filters.

And heís a tech so itís nice knowing he actually knows what he is doing.

+1 saw that, always good to see a FB20 focused video.


but man, he takes forever to get to the point, and he's kind of misleading on his pricing, with him getting a shop discount on dealer parts.

It's rough dealing with the usual; 'you need to buy all your parts from the dealer, so you know it's good. If you don't get Subaru genuine parts at full price, you're a loser who will die when your parts explode from inferior quality'

Yea he does have really long videos. I usually just cut to the part I want to see unless Iím bored.

As for parts I think the biggest thing is that you donít have to worry about if they are good if you get oem parts. If you get something online it can be hard to tell if itís good or not so you are taking your chances.

25 minutes doesn't sound too long to me, I've become used to 25-40 minute chemistry/engineering videos so it seems normal to me now.

I will be doing my annual comparison video about fluid film the rust preventative undercoating soon. This is after my 4th winter using it.

If you guys want me to address anything or have questions that you would like to see answered let me know and Iíll try to add them to the video.

Also if you have any pictures of your cars undercarriage (rear diff area) please post them with mileage, number of winter, location and model year of the car.

Thanks!

I suppose you want to avoid car washes that use an undercarriage spray when you use fluid film?

Generally I just try to wash my car by hand on the exceptionally warm days.

oil catch can, imo, with so much free time to do stuff, that's what I did and wow did the tiny one catch a lot of oil, I had to upgrade to a beefier one.

Catch cans arenít necessary for these engines ( or most ) as long as the pcv system is functioning correctly.
