105k is the recommended time.
I have a 2008 Subara Impreza. When should i change the timing belt? Do i also need to change the cogs, tension bars and water pump??
As far as I know, all subarus have timing chains.
My 2005 Subaru Impreza has a timing belt. And it just cost me an engine. Make sure you replace it based on the owners manual. Should be about every 100k miles. Don't make the mistake I made and neglect this.
A diagram for a 1998 Subaru Impreza can be found in a factory service repair manual. Local auto part stores are also connected to a computer database which will have a library of timing belt diagrams for every make and model.
typically $250 - $300. just paid $260 to do my '02 impreza RS.
You can't, it's done automatically by the ecu (engine management system)
Most cars with a rubber timing belt and not a timing chain should be replaced between 80-100k miles. I believe the impreza has an interference engine which means if the timing belt breaks while driving you will have a much more expensive repair, as the valves may need replacing as well. If you have no proof that the timing belt was done by a previous owner you should have it done as well.
with your hands...
According to the local Subaru dealership, it should be replaced at 105,000 miles (U.S.). Estimated price for parts and labor as of 2007 is $625.00 USD.
On a 2.5 liter engine it is located behind the timing belt cover.My advise, replace the timing belt when you replace the timing belt. It will have to come off anyway.
It has an interference engine ( according to Gates , they manufacture timing belts etc. )
It should bethe same as a 1997 and there will be no way to adjust the timing as it is an electronic ignition. If you are changing the timing belt and looking for the top dead center marks (TDC) That is a different matter...
The 2.5 Liter 4 cylinder has a cam belt that MUST be changed every 105,000 miles. This is an interference engine.
Subaru Forester has a timing belt.

Subaru does use a timing belt. Please ask a question that can be answered.
Subaru uses a belt.
The 2007 Subaru Tribeca does have dual timing chains.
Timing maybe? Get your timing belt looked at
to be honest if you ain't mechanically minded i would take it to a garage to be done as it ain't a 5min job and if you don't get it right it will cost you your engine.
Subaru says 105,000 miles. Far be it for me to contradict the engineers, that sounds like a lot, it's the most I have ever heard of. And it IS an interference engine. If it breaks, the valves will collide with pistons= blown engine
I just got an estimate for my 02 wrx wagon at $904. bummed.
