2003 Forester with 165k miles
Leaking oil, not noticeable on driveway, but leaking enough that its a problem.
1st shop said it was rear main seal and oil pan
2nd shop said not rear main seal, same issue he’s seen with these cars for years. Cylinder Head Gaskets, and all the seals are old and hard so not doing their jobs. He would need to take out engine, re seal everything, do timing belt while he’s in there. $1900. Says after that you’ll be golden for 100k or more.
Both shops say I can live with it, just refill fluids every week. But who know what could happen in the future.
Before we even entertain the motion of selling a kidney to pay for this repair. Is this a good quote? Is it worth it?
really starting to wish I spent all this money and time on car problems, On inventing teleportation!
