It requires you taking off the timing belt to do so.What would a water pump run? Like installation + parts from an average shop, or is easy enough to do my self ?
I may hit you up somewhat soon then. I've got an 02 with 92k so I need to stay thinking about thatIt requires you taking off the timing belt to do so.
Here is a video guide of how to do so: Meatys Subaru Timing Belt Guide (HD)(1/5) - YouTube
We actually sell a kit of all the necessary replacement parts for a vehicle of your year to change out everything in one process.
No.How long would a 05 wrx stock clutch last? Anybody have an estimate?
+1 Too many factors to estimate the life a clutch. At 100k, and buying a car, I would just assume it is shot ( for financial planning) but it is entirely possible you could get another 30-40k out of it. It is nearly impossible to estimate. My first vehicle (85 f150 with straight 6, so base I am surprised it had seats) ran till 160k on stock clutch. Even with my noobness. A clutch is not the end of the world. See how it feels on a test drive and go from there.No.
The clutch in my 02 has 100K on it. On the other hand I could wreck a clutch in an afternoon.
However, the latter is very telling. I'd instinctively have a better feeling about a car that's old but with an original clutch than one that's younger and been through five clutches.
Yes. Both.Ok, if I did have to replace it, would it be that difficult or expensive?
I heard on the radio BevMo has a buy one, get the second at 5 cents sale once in a while. Never done it though. I know they have discount cards too, like supermarket club cards but for them.Nah, I'm gonna bait a few people from Subaru forums with a 24 pack of beer* each =P
* = We're not going to Total Wine/Bevmo. But if it is a deal breaker.... MAYBE.
No.I'm going to look at one later today. It's an 02 with 110k miles, he has new clutch, a turbo timer, 20g turbo, he had the timing belt done, he says he doesn't know about the water pump.
Anything I should ask him about specific with those mods?
