This is my first car. My baby.
I took her in for a routine timing belt change. They put it on wrong. Failed to turn the camshaft 180 degrees after installing the first of two belts. I waited 4 weeks for this process, then was told that my engine was busted (low compression in three cylinders) It would cost over a grand to fix, but they were willing to "take a look and see what they could do"
I lost my ability to drive, resulting in loss of my catering abilities and loss of a job. I was set back potential thousands of what could of been hard earned dollars. I had no other choice but to set her up until I could afford the proper work that needed to be done. Little did I know that all that needed to be done was putting the timing belt on proper. My parent's next door neighbor heard the story and had it done in two hours! She runs perfect.
We took this to the highest power of CT customer satisfaction, and the 4 month battle to get our money back resulted in complete disregard for what they had failed to do. They chose not to refund my money so this is my response.
This is not the only story. This is My story. I have heard many of which other's beloved cars have either been falsely "fixed" or not fixed at all.
I want to hear your stories. I want to hear everyone of them! Please. If you have a story relating to this, or have ever been jipped by our Huge "trusted" national garage, I want to hear it.
Video responses are preferred.
This video was recorded and edited by my father. All work done to the car, and present in the video is our neighbor Nathan. Thanks to them. My subie is running perfectly again.
300+ HP Subaru Loyale Wagon
A 1990 Subaru Loyale wagon with a tuned up EJ255 from a 2007 WRX.
Drivetrain sourced from a Subaru XT.
The bad part is that this engine was only in the car temporarily. It was
soon installed into a much newer Subaru, which means no more videos. I
really wish I had been able to get more footage!
This car belonged to my Subaru enthusiast buddy, I film many different
vehicles as well as my own.
1995 Subaru Legacy - full tune-up DIY guide
A video, fully documenting a fairly complete tune-up on a 1995 Subaru
Legacy AWD wagon with an EJ22 engine and 5MT manual transmission.
In this video, I cover:
-rear differential fluid change
-transmission fluid change
-engine oil change
-spark plugs and wires
-timing belt change
-water pump change
-belts and hoses
Most, if not all of this should apply to similar generation Impezas.

Subaru EA81 weird running symptoms
Completely weird symptoms coming from this car, as you can see. We are at a
total loss to explain what's going on here, why does the position of the
air cleaner effect the idle speed so drastically?

[HD] 1990 Subaru Loyale -- My Second Car
So basically this is a walkaround and overview of my new car, a red 1990
Subaru Loyale wagon. My old car, the 1981 Subaru GL wagon, died from a
cracked block or head and was towed away on Easter, 2012. A week after, I
picked this up. When I bought it, it had three main problems. The first was
the battery was dead from sitting for a couple months. Fixed this because I
had a new battery installed in my old car a couple months before it died,
and I just transferred it over. The second problem was the tires would go
flat within a day or two. Fixed this by buying a set of four wheels/tires
off the Ultimate Subaru Message Board for $30, swapped them out, and sold
my set for $20 on the message board. The third and final problem is the
passenger axle. Both the inner and outer boots are torn, and the actual
axle is bad. Went to the Pick-N-Pull to get an axle, but I didn't have the
right tools. Instead, I got two new headlights (the originals were yellowed
and not bright), a new clock, two speakers, a bunch of fuses, and a couple
headlight bulbs. This car is better than my old one because it's go 90 horsepower (versus
73), runs better, has five gears, and is fuel injected. It's also got a
softer suspension for a better ride. Still has on-demand 4WD, so that's
useful. It's just overall a better car. I'm glad I got it. Be looking
forward to dashcam videos!!
