    Emerjency Help

    I got a really bad oil leak couple days ago..Its on the passenger side, all over the manifold heat shield. I took it to shop, turns out its coming from one of the Cam-Shafts i believe? Could it just be a seal? anyone know if they had that problem before, how much it would cost me at a Subaru dealer to have it fixed? Thanks

    if its a cam seal, which it does sound like, get it replaced and have them do the timing belt, small idler, and possibly tensioner while in there (unless youre super low mileage)

    basically itll cost you a typical timing belt job +parts + an extra half hour labor to do the cam seal thats leaking. not a big deal.
