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.

1994 Subaru Legacy will not start (timing belt jumped)
Apologies in advance for the extremely long video. I spend the first few
minutes explaining the problem I'm having with the car.
1994 Subaru Legacy EJ22 5-speed AWD. Died on highway last month and would
not restart. Have been getting diagnostic help from
http://bbs.legacycentral.org . This video is to show a grinding noise I'm
getting while cranking. Car will crank but will not start. Sounds like it
is trying to start. Checked and I have spark, fuel and air.
More background on the car:
292,000 miles on body and engine
216,000 on transmission
30,000 on timing belt
apx. 5,000 miles since tune-up (spark plugs, fluids and filters (except
This has me stumped. I'd like to fix it, but I am also car shopping.
Car was running perfectly before this. I bought it in October, 2006 with
204,000 miles on it and have driven and maintained it since then. Was a
reliable daily driver until last month and handled my 90 mile round trip
commute with ease in al weather.
UPDATE - car has since been fixed and sold. Traced issue to a jumped timing
belt (idler pulley had seized). Car would crank OK, but would not start,

Installing a Subaru Timing belt
I forgot to mention in the vid a check that can be done to make sure the
belt is aligned correct is counting the number of teeth on the belt between
the index mark on the cam pulley and crank index mark..
The left side (in a subaru, side with the oil filler & tensioner #2 and #4
) there is 40 and a half teeth on the belt.
The right side (#1 and #3 has 44 teeth.
This is with the SOHC engines.
