#61 of 62 2003 Subaru Baja - oil leak getting much worse
Jul 01, 2009 (12:26 pm)
I have serviced my Baja regularly and ever since last summer there is a smell of burnt oil. Now it has started leaking. The Subaru dealer recently replaced the oil pump and the timing belt. They said the leak was from the oil pump. Now the leak is much worse and an independent garage is saying - head gasket, lifters.... $2000 - $4000!!!! From what I am reading, the Subaru dealership should have known about the possibilities and looked at this when they had it ripped apart!!

Hi, I'm new to this forum. I want to apologize up front, if I didn't read far enough to find my answer. I have a 2003 Baja, we bought it used. After owning it for a time, it was rolled over( no one was hurt ) and considered "totaled" ( note to self, "don't let kids borrow car!") after some cosmetic work, and a little tweaking of the frame, we started driving it again. After being driven at excessive speeds,(note to self,"refer to last note to self, idiot") it began to make a very loud clattering type noise, I wasn't sure if it had a thrown rod or what, when it starts now it clatters, it will stop at times, and almost sounds like it is separate from the rhythm of the engine, if that makes any sense, could this be a rod, or maybe valves?? thanx
