    I posted this in another section and only one person responded. I'm trying to figure out if it's the valve cover gasket or something else. Anyone know or had this problem??? Thanks. It's still leaking and I don't know where else to go. I'm not real big on paying the dealership tons of money.

    I took my 2K4 in for rountine maintence and they noticed small leaks at valve cover gaskets. Your's seem to be dirtier than what I had. Was informed it was common with this year and easy fix. Any experienced mech. can fix quite easily. No leaks since. By the way I have seen the engines pulled in 45 mins. and diagnosed and fixed within a hour and half.

    I ended up selling the car and still have the Subaru gasket if you're interested?
