wanted to check my HGs since everyone talks about them going bad and i found this



Bad HGs?

My car is a 2001 with less than 96000 miles on it, and i know from my.subaru that the past owner had the coolant conditioner warranty service back in january ... so I qualify for the extended SOA HG warranty right?

Burnt coolant is a white, crusted substance. What you have pictured there is burnt oil. Is that your oil filter? When was the last time you changed it? I see the manifold there.. are we looking at passengers or drivers side?

looks like the oil filter needs to be changed. is the oil dripping down from somewhere higher up? usually the case. might also be the front main seal if its dripping down.

well i went under the car to check the drivers side and found more

seems to be mostly oil




seems to just be a small oil leak, not leaving spots where i park or anything. checked the oil it was 3/4 of the way towards full between the L and F.

anyone got ideas on what it might be/take to fix this?
