Damn straight! I just did mine last week.
that would be your crank oil seal. I can garantee you that the dealer is not going to charge you 200 bux to change it, cause well I use to work for subaru.

you have to tear off the entire front of the motor, belts pullyes, front plastic cover, crank pully timing belt....its a big job.

if someone will do it for a 100 bux your a better man then me.

what kind of car do you have? how many miles, dohc or sohc, dohc suck especially lining the timing pulleys back and the belt....

I work At A Subaru Deal;er too!!

Hey buddy,
I work at a Suby Dealer. And i have a tech willing to do it for that much. I give him all my new car accesories install so he said he will do that!!

He is a Master tech also!!

I have a 99 rs and it has 37 k on it. car sits a little as well i dont knw if that has anything to do with it??
Very common on a ej25 motor!!
